Description Bogdan 2021-12-13 22:45:10 UTC
genkernel package installs source codes into /usr/share/genkernel/disfiles directory.
This directory for sys-kernel/genkernel-4.2.6-r2 has ~174 MiB:
> equery s genkernel
>  * sys-kernel/genkernel-4.2.6-r2
>          Total files : 456
>          Total size  : 173.04 MiB

Directory <distfiles> have 170MiB:
> C_ALL=en_US du /usr/share/genkernel/distfiles
> 170M    /usr/share/genkernel/distfiles
> 170M    total

All this sources - are the same, as in DISTDIR="/var/cache/distfiles" (from make.conf).

Reproducible: Always

Actual Results:  
Dublicates of files in /usr/share/genkernel/distfiles and in DISTDIR="/var/cache/distfiles".

Expected Results:  
Source code must be stored only in single copy under $DISTDIR (from make.conf) directory.

I rebuild my kernel after normal system update. But have troubles in genkernel, which needs to rebuild LLVM2 package, but build fails with an error:
> ld.lld: error: unable to find library -l:libunwind.a

My system have sys-fs/lvm2-2.03.14, but genkernel rebuild initramfs with 2.2.02.188 version.
At now, portage does not have 2.2.02.188 version, but have 2.02.188-r2 (current stable version).

genkernel build initramfs exactly with llvm-2.2.02.188 version, even main system have 2.02.188-r2 or 2.03.14 versions.

I think, that this error may be resolved by switching genkernel to use newest version of lvm package.

Please:
1) Remove source code archives from genkernel program directories.
2) Use packages, which needs for build initramfs, directly from portage tree, not by local copy.

This allows:
- save disk space$
- build initramfs without errors from old and bugged versions of required packages.
