Description Mark G. Woodruff 2019-07-23 21:43:27 UTC
picard uses fpcalc, which is only included if the tools use flag is given to chromaprint, so it needs to both require chromaprint and the tools flag.
Comment 1 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2019-08-06 13:03:24 UTC
it now shown an an optional dependency as reported in installation logs

Install optional package media-libs/chromaprint[tools] to enable
calculation and lookup of AcoustID fingerprints.

Install optional package dev-python/python-discid to enable
calculation and lookup of compact disc identifiers (disc IDs).

If you are upgrading Picard and it does not start, try removing
Picard's settings:
        rm ~/.config/MusicBrainz/Picard.conf
Comment 2 Sebastian Pipping gentoo-dev 2020-03-12 15:37:37 UTC
Are you suggesting that a blocker runtime dependency like "! media-libs/chromaprint[-tools]" is needed here?  Or is this ticked considered fix by the hints printed during pkg_postinst?

    media-sound/picard: reworked elog info to use flags
    to make it more user friendly and also to display
    the upgrade hint on each upgrade and not just on the first
    install which is pretty useless
