Right, well I would suggest:

Code:
mkdir -p /etc/portage
echo "=net-nds/openldap-2.1.26" >> /etc/portage/package.unmask


Try that, and then tell me what the output of "emerge -p openldap" is again.

Code:

coal root # mkdir /etc/portage
coal root # echo "=net-nds/openldap-2.1.26" >> /etc/portage/package.unmask
coal root # emerge -p openladap

These are the packages that I would merge, in order:

Calculating dependencies
emerge: there are no masked or unmasked ebuilds to satisfy "openladap".

!!! Error calculating dependencies. Please correct.


I did a emerge -s for goo dmeasure
Code:


coal root # emerge -s openldap

Spot the mistake? openladap.

ah crap..... :oops:

Code:

coal root # emerge -p openldap

These are the packages that I would merge, in order:

Calculating dependencies
!!! all ebuilds that could satisfy "openldap" have been masked.
!!! possible candidates are:
- net-nds/openldap-2.1.30 (masked by: profile, ~keyword)
- net-nds/openldap-2.1.26 (masked by: profile)
- net-nds/openldap-2.1.27 (masked by: profile, ~keyword)
- net-nds/openldap-2.1.27-r1 (masked by: profile, ~keyword)

!!! Error calculating dependencies. Please correct.


no change though......

This is the strangest thing I've seen in a good while. It appears to be a genuine bug - quite what triggers it I don't know - but if you head over to http://bugs.gentoo.org/ and report it there, that'd be great. Sorry I can't be of more help...

great tip robmoss2k - you've been a great help.

The answer I think can be found here.

Ah, I getcha! Hadn't realised you'd been around for a sufficiently long time for that to be a problem - I must make a habit of looking at people's joined dates!

Anyway, I would suggest that updating your /etc/make.profile symlink to something a bit more current might be a good idea. default-x86-2004.0 is a little more current than default-1.0...

Crap, too late, just found the possibility of the profile masking the package, while you were already solving the problem. :)

Just as an addition: We could have seen this earlier, because if one of the package.mask files would have been the problem emerge would have said "masked by: package.mask", not "masked by: profile".

So, whenever there is a "masked by: profile", robmoss2k's tip of checking the make.profile symlink could be useful.

Regards, sean

Yeah, I should have realised that sooner. I've never had the problem before, but I know what to do with it from now on :D

wow - didn't even realise the profile versioning stuff.

will I have to recompile everything if I change from defualt-1.0 to default-x86-2004.0?

You can if you want to, but you don't have to. Just run am emerge -Duav world and see what wants to update.

Great post, this is and the force flows powerful in robmoss2k.


Heh, the emerge -UD killed mine good once
The etc-update mess was recoverable, a live/rescue-CD of most any description is a must for a gentoo noob. I clobbered fstab, modules.autoload.d and one other, I forget which once :oops:

dispatch-conf yes! that looks like a must have!

Where's glsa-check come from? Searching on fresh ebuilds, emerge -s or -S no joy
And yes, this looks like a really good candidate for a sticky, great info here!

Thanks all!

This has been one of the best threads that I have ever read. I to have the old profile problem, never realized that I needed to i needed to update /etc/make.profiles.

Also thanks for the description on how to add certain unstable packages to your tree. I was just running into this problem since I switched from xfree to xorg X server.

PS -> robmoss2k - I found this thread through your sig, many thanks.

hi robmoss2k,

I agree that emerge -uU can be incorrect in the case you report but adding ~x86 to packages.keyword for xfree or gcc or any other packages does not sound like a safer solution... As soon as a new unstable version of them is released, your portage will propose to upgrade... it's ok if you want a sharp edge machine but not a solution for stability.

Also I did not see any mention anywhere of -U being deprecated, or soon to be as you reported... any link to such info ? my man pages did not report that.

I use -uUD and I think it is good solution. Matter of taste may be :wink:

I use -uUD and I think it is good solution. Matter of taste may be :wink:


Would that still be a good solution if you were on a dial-up connection and rsync-2.6.2 hosed any chance of you being able to "emerge sync"? I think not. Would it still be a good solution if binutils-2.15* broke compilation of xorg-x11 and a new, stable release of that showed up? I think not. It's a very, very bad solution. Truly disgusting. If you want an unstable package and don't want future unstable releases, then either you shouldn't be using the unstable package in the first place, or you want a very specific version to use unstable, and so you should add something like this to package.keywords instead:

Code:
=x11-base/xfree-4.3.0* ~x86


-U is going fairly soon... you need to check out IRC for such information though. It's not "official" per se, but believe me, it's going.

When I run emerge -pv depclean my system tries to unmerge my kernel sources

I have tried emerging them again but depclean still insists on removing them. Is there any way round this?

Indeed there is! You don't have your kernel sources listed in /var/cache/edb/virtuals. So in that particular file, the following line exists on my system:

Code:
virtual/linux-sources sys-kernel/gentoo-dev-sources


You need something similar in your own virtuals file.

I have that exact same line in my /var/edb/cache/virtuals and my kernel sources are gentoo-dev-sources but emerge depclean still wants to remove them, any more ideas

Forgive me, if stating the obvious, but you have
Code:
sys-kernel/gentoo-dev-sources
also in your /var/cache/edb/world file, haven't you?

Code:
emerge depclean

should never try to unmerge packages in world and system and their dependencies. I don't know, if it cares about the virtuals.

If your system tries to unmerge gentoo-dev-sources, although it is in world, that is some very strange error. Please post some more information, then.

But, nobspangle (great name by the way!) do you also have another "virtual/linux" line in there? This would be as a result of merging two or more kernel sources. It does happen - this is probably something to do with a package that required kernel sources as a dependency during your initial install. You should have only one "virtual/linux" line in virtuals, and your kernel sources don't need to be, but should, be listed in world. Both virtuals and world are in the same place, by the way - /var/cache/edb.

I found the problem, but fixing it creates a new problem I could do with advice on.

in world I had the line
sys-kernel/gentoo-dev-sources=2.6.3-r1

I added the version to stop emerge -uD world from updating my kernel. Removing the version number has stopped emerge depclean from trying to remove the kernel sources.

So the questions

1. Why does this happen?
2. Is there a way I can stop it from happening?
3. If not can I fix my kernel source version a different way?

[edit]I have tried the following without success
adding =2.6.3-r1 to the line in virtuals
removing the line from world
combinations of the two[/edit]

sys-kernel/gentoo-dev-sources=2.6.3-r1 is not a valid atom.

=sys-kernel/gentoo-dev-sources-2.6.3-r1 is a valid atom.

Ways to fix a package are with >sys-kernel/gentoo-dev-sources-2.6.3-r1 in /etc/portage/package.mask (package exclusion mask) or =sys-kernel/gentoo-dev-sources-2.6.3-r1 in /etc/portage/profile/packages (package inclusion mask).

Does anyone, have an idea, why my line in virtuals looks like this:
Code:
virtual/linux-sources sys-kernel/love-sources sys-kernel/gentoo-sources sys-kernel/gentoo-dev-sources sys-kernel/development-sources

I had all those sources, but shouldn't emerge remove those, which are unmerged? Currently there are only gentoo-dev-sources and love-sources on my system.

Sorry, but this is wrong: I just tried and when removing the sources from world emerge -p depclean wants to remove them, which was the initial problem of nobspangle.

BTW: I learned a lot in this thread (once again thanks, especially to robmoss2k and ecatmur), so shouldn't the title be changed or the thread be split, so that others can find it, too?
