Description Daniel Black (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-12-08 06:41:29 UTC
The SRC_URI tarball doesn't exist on it exists as a symlink only.It does point to something.

version does exist though.

Really? It points to good file for me. What shows you emerge, add some output. Please reopen this bug if problem still exists.
Comment 2 Daniel Black (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-12-08 13:11:28 UTC
There is no problem as such just upstream has 6.1.6-0 and 6.1.6-1 exactly the same.

Version bump is the same ebuild. 

ls -la
lrwxrwxrwx   1 ftpuser  ftpusers        26 Dec  7 13:36 ImageMagick-6.1.6-0.tar.gz -> ImageMagick-6.1.6-1.tar.gz
-rw-r--r--   1 ftpuser  ftpusers   4558135 Dec  7 15:32 ImageMagick-6.1.6-1.tar.bz2
-rw-r--r--   1 ftpuser  ftpusers   5579540 Dec  7 15:32 ImageMagick-6.1.6-1.tar.gz

Also worth noting is the the SRC_URI on perlmagic has differences between its 6.1.6-0 and 6.1.6-1 bz2 tarball. From the changelog I think they did a rapid version bump.

As per changlog:

# diff ImageMagick-6.1.6-0.bz2/ChangeLog ImageMagick-6.1.6-1.bz2/ChangeLog
> 2004-12-06  Chris Madison  <madisonblu@hotma...>
>   * CompareImages() now sets the black channel when comparing CMYK images.

Suggested course of action: copy media-gfx/imagemagick/imagemagick- to media-gfx/imagemagick/imagemagick- without the ususal drop in keywords (same tarball contents). Bump dev-perl/perlmagick- to dev-perl/perlmagick- (tarball contents change).

Also as imagemagick and perlmagick use the same tarball contents should they use the same tarball? They are fetched from different locations however they are essentually the same except for the odd anomaly when they symlink versions together.

Could they just be combined into one ebuild?
Comment 3 Karol Wojtaszek (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-12-11 10:34:08 UTC
I'm really thinking about adding perl USE flag to imagemagick and remove perlmagick's ebuild. I think, I'll do you it in next week, so be patient.

sorry if I seemed to be rushing you. This wasn't my intent.
Comment 5 Karol Wojtaszek (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-12-13 15:34:40 UTC
no problem, i've planned this for few weeks ;)
Comment 6 Jakub Moc (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-07-27 18:41:40 UTC
Neither, nor is in portage any more, closing a pointless bug.
