Portage is ready to downgrade icu (no problem, I understand this package is in flux right now), but what do the lowercase r letters indicate in the output below?
Code:
 % sudo emerge world -Du --newuse --with-bdeps=y -p
[ebuild  r  UD ] dev-libs/icu-49.1.2 [50_rc-r1]
[ebuild  rR    ] dev-db/sqlite-3.7.14.1
[ebuild  rR    ] dev-libs/boost-1.51.0-r1

Thanks.

Well, the man-page for emerge says this:

Code:
r   reinstall (forced for some reason, possibly due to slot or sub-slot)


Seems it's slot related.

for me wine pretty often gets pulled in with the new emerge:

for completeness' sake I'll post the man emerge full output for those 2 positions here:

Quote:
[ebuild r U ] dev-libs/icu-50.1.1:0/50.1.1 [50.1-r2:0/50.1]
Icu 50.1-r2 has already been emerged and can be Updated to ver‐
sion 50.1.1. The r symbol indicates that a sub-slot change (from
50.1 to 50.1.1 in this case) will force packages having
slot-operator dependencies on it to be rebuilt (as libxml2 will
be rebuilt in the next example).

[ebuild rR ] dev-libs/libxml2-2.9.0-r1:2 USE="icu"
Libxml2 2.9.0-r1 has already been emerged, but if you run the
command, then portage will Re-emerge it in order to satisfy a
slot-operator dependency which forces it to be rebuilt when the
icu sub-slot changes (as it changed in the previous example).

I agree that the man page is a good place to look :wink:, but in my case the confusion comes from the difference between "r" and "R":
Code:
R   replacing (remerging same version)
A reinstall and a remerge sound pretty much the same to me. I suppose the reason for the remerge/reinstall could be different, but there's little info on that in the man page. Does anybody know what that difference is?

Portage does a 'R' when you tell it to; i.e. Use flag changes, you specifically asking portage to re-compile a package, etc.

Portage does a 'r' when upgrading some other package somehow breaks the package that has the 'r' next to it. This is a newer thing...maybe it is meant to make us less dependent on commands like revdep-rebuild?
