Description Lars Wendler (Polynomial-C) (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2019-12-06 11:21:23 UTC
Created attachment 598624 [details]

See attachment which shows an example with "emerge -pf bash". Same happens with -pF switch combination.
Comment 1 Mike Gilbert gentoo-dev 2019-12-06 15:57:21 UTC
Portage needs information from layout.conf to output the correct URI format depending on how GENTOO_MIRRORS is set.

I think the only alternative would be to emit an error.
Comment 2 Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2019-12-06 18:35:26 UTC
For pretend mode we could increase the TTL of the layout.conf cache.
Comment 3 Michael Dombroski 2020-01-23 23:05:57 UTC
The -pf switch combination worked fine with sys-apps/portage-2.3.69:0.
Fails as described with sys-apps/portage-2.3.79:0 and sys-apps/portage-2.3.84-r1:0.

This is really annoying as I have a computer not on the Internet on purpose and I need emerge to produce a list of URI, so I can provide the needed distfiles for that computer, but since this layout.conf is needed I get a lot of error messages of not being able to download layout.conf instead of just a list or URI to be downloaded..
