Description Alexandra Parker 2022-04-22 20:30:21 UTC
I'm running a ~ keyword system, so www-apps/nextcloud RDEPEND on dev/lang-php resolves to dev-lang/php-8.1.4. At runtime it checks (lib/versioncheck.php) that it's not running on PHP>8.0 and crashes otherwise, so it should probably RDEPEND on dev-lang/php<8.1.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Be ~ARCH.
2. Install nextcloud.
3. Try to access nextcloud.
Actual Results:  
Page saying:

This version of Nextcloud is not compatible with > PHP 8.0.
You are currently running 8.1.4.

Expected Results:  
Nextcloud homepage.

Running on ~arm64. Can work around by either masking PHP 8.1 if nothing needs it, or also installing 8.0 otherwise. Is there a better workaround to mask 8.1 for www-apps/nextcloud specifically?
