I did an emerge world today and spamassassin is to be installed along with various perl scripts.

Can someone explain how to figure out what program is requesting this. I have a small email server that runs spamassassin so I don't need or want it on my local machine.

Thanks,
Michael

Code:
emerge -t world

Might show you what you want.

Thanks.

Actually

Code:
emerge -uDtv world


did the trick.

So the next question is why does evolution want spamassassin and how do I tell it no?

I don't understand why evolution would want spamassassin. Is it possible to post the output of emerge -uDtv world?

The new evolution uses spamassasin to filter spam. Before you could optionally send an email to spamassasin using a filter. Using spamassasin is still an option but it's more incorporated into evolution. That's probably why it chooses to install it.

Then what do I have different about my system that keeps evolution from asking for spamassassin? I don't see anything about it in the ebuild so I am not sure that is the reason.

It's optionally as far as if you use it or not. I'm don't believe there's a use flag or anything that determines it is installed. Check out the ebuild. Spamassasin is definitely included as a dependency. Maybe you can file a bug report or complain in some other way. Or I guess you could change the ebuild and see what happens.

If it is an option,then how do I tell the system that I don't want it. As stated above, I already run spamassassin on my mail server.

Michael

There is a line for spamassasin. I don't understand why they would be different. Did you remove the line for spamassasin? You didn't mention it in any of your posts. Also, the ebuild version is evolution-2.0.2.ebuild.

Whoa...freaky. I've never even messed with the ebuild (NTM the fact I just synced like ten minutes ago)
EDIT: Well, I have it now...strange.
Code:

# $Header: /var/cvsroot/gentoo-x86/mail-client/evolution/evolution-2.0.2.ebuild,v 1.12 2004/11/15 21:26:12 liquidx Exp $

The time could explain that.

So, shouldn't this be an option, rather than required? Sounds like a USE flag to me.

You could always
Code:
echo "mail-filter/spamassassin" >> /etc/portage/profile/package.provided
no?

Is using the package.* files now becoming the "Gentoo Way"? Yes, I use them, but somehow they seem to punch a hole through the "elegance" of USE flags and FEATURES. Don't you agree?

I don't agree. I still set FEATURES in /etc/make.conf, but I prefer to set USE flags on a per-package basis in /etc/portage/package.use. Of course, others prefer to use /etc/portage/package.use to override system-wide flags. It's up to you.

This is a bug in the ebuild. Evolution works fine and dandy without SpamAssassin if you don't use the spam feature.

Maybe you should let the ebuild's author know and submit a bug in Gentoo's bugzilla.

For myself, I have copied the ebuild in the overlay and commented the SpamAssassin dependency, and will rely on this fashion until the ebuild author wakes up.
