Description MAL 2005-03-09 11:34:05 UTC
emerge ati-drivers

 * Building the DRM module...
make: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-2.6.11'
  CC [M]

... etc ...

make[1]: *** [/var/tmp/portage/ati-drivers-8.8.25/work/lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod/firegl_public.o] Error 1
make: *** [_module_/var/tmp/portage/ati-drivers-8.8.25/work/lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod] Error 2
make: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.6.11'
 * DRM module not built

... but the ebuild continues to merge the package and portage doesn't return a nonzero exit code.

Reproducible: Always

Since that won't prevent you from having a working 2d driver I just warn if there are problems.

If enough people want it to error out then I'll make it work as requested.

Bug is getting old, please verify with 8.16
Comment 3 Luca Barbato gentoo-dev 2005-09-27 09:46:20 UTC
looks there isn't much interest in having it fail instead of warn, sorry, closed
