Description Lapo Calamandrei 2002-10-28 06:10:45 UTC
gconf 1.0.8 requires db-3.x.x this ebuild contains :
    nls? ( sys-devel/gettext )"

which is wrong

Comment 2 foser (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-10-29 05:35:16 UTC
Care to explain why it is wrong ? You mean db should be in DEPEND, not in RDEPEND ?
Comment 3 Lapo Calamandrei 2002-10-29 06:02:02 UTC
uhm? gconf requires db 3 series this ebuild requires db at least 3.x series, so
If you have db 4 the deps are satisfied, but the ebuild will not compile, btw
our db 3 ebuild doesn't install db.h in <includedir>db3/db.h but in
<includedir>db.h and gconf's configure looks for <includedir>db3/db.h so it will
not compile even if fixed
Comment 4 foser (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-10-29 06:27:22 UTC
So you have a problem with the dep not being =sys-libs/db-3* , isn't db4
supposed to be backwards compatible with 3 ?

For the second problem, for me db3 does install a /usr/include/db.h
Comment 5 foser (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-10-29 06:28:29 UTC
_and_ in /usr/include/db3/db.h , forgot to add that.
Comment 6 Lapo Calamandrei 2002-10-29 06:32:35 UTC
here db-3.x doesn't install db3/db.h...wondering why.
foser, if db4 is compatible with db3 doesn't matter, gconf configure looks for
db3/db.h so you need to have that file
Comment 7 foser (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-10-29 08:06:30 UTC
We could patch it, if it works ok with db4.
Comment 8 Lapo Calamandrei 2002-10-29 08:19:31 UTC
db4 is not working on ppc atm
Comment 9 foser (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2003-07-31 03:23:44 UTC
the db dep was removed from gconf some time ago

thnx for your report.
