Description Phil Pennock 2005-01-22 18:57:24 UTC
# qpkg -I -f /usr/lib/
media-libs/libmpeg2 *
media-video/drip *

Whilst installing a game which depends upon games-engines/scummvm, the build of that failed because of missing symbols starting "mpeg_"; those symbols weren't in libmpeg2.a, according to nm(1).  Using qpkg(1), saw the double ownership.

Unmerged drip, re-emerged libmpeg2, emerged the game again and this time everything worked.

So, to my inexperienced eye, it looks as though drip is installing a much more minimal libmpeg2, which breaks other ebuilds, with no conflict declared against the more full-featured libmpeg2 ebuild.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. emerge media-libs/libmpeg2
2. emerge media-video/drip
3. emerge games-engines/scummvm

Actual Results:  
emerge of games-engines/scummvm failed

Expected Results:  
emerged the engine which depended upon libmpeg2 successfully

Is this still an issue with drip-0.9.0 ? 
Comment 2 Phil Pennock 2005-10-30 12:49:02 UTC
Sorry, don't know; the current drip is ~x86 and I run x86 and don't want to
break my mpeg setup again at the moment, not having a spare test system.

I guess the question is whether or not drip-0.9.0 installs a libmpeg2 in
/usr/lib/; if so, then yes it's still a problem.

Sorry that I can't help any further.

drip masked and pending removal.
