Description Reuben Farrelly 2020-05-19 04:11:25 UTC
The Gentoo awstats ebuild has a use flag for geoip, which if selected brings in the dependency of dev-perl/Geo-IP.

However dev-perl/Geo-IP is being replaced by dev-perl/GeoIP2 which superseeds it.

The exact same ebuild situation exists for SpamAssassin, and there is talk about how to fix the same issue in that package here:

So a possibly fix might be from this part of the ebuild:

    geoip? (


    geoip? (
        || ( dev-perl/GeoIP2 dev-perl/Geo-IP )

Or I suppose a straight requirement on only GeoIP2.

Nothing to do for perl here.
