I want to remove a package (media-libs/pdflib)

perl-cleaner is complaining about not finding the ebuild (media-libs/pdflib was removed from portage)

How to proceed ?

Regards,
Natan

Just unmerge it.

I did. But for perl-cleaner the package is still there (?)

Code:
emerge: there are no ebuilds to satisfy "media-libs/pdflib".

emerge isn't telling you that package is still there.
emerge is telling you media-libs/pdflib has no more ebuild in your tree.

so if you don't have a package and emerge wants it even you didn't ask it, someone asked to get that package.
if it's not you, it's then a dependency of someone but emerge should had tell you who is that someone in the form "require by package/xxx".

ask emerge to upgrade it so it loose its dependency over the "not in the tree" package or remove it as it should probably be out of the tree too.

the dependency is libperl

I need to run perl-cleaner.

Code:

 * Locating packages for an update
 * Locating ebuilds linked against libperl
 *   Adding to list: media-libs/pdflib:5
 *     check: module /usr/lib64/perl5/site_perl/5.12.2/x86_64-linux-thread-multi/pdflib_pl.a

<snip>

 *   Adding to list: www-apps/swish-e:0
 *     check: module /usr/lib64/perl5/vendor_perl/5.12.2/x86_64-linux-thread-multi/SWISH/API.pm


So perl-cleaner is going to run:

Code:
emerge -vD1 --backtrack=30 -p media-libs/pdflib:5 <snip> www-apps/swish-e:0


But I don't want pdflib and swish-e anymore.

How can I tell emerge to skip those two packages ?

what should be upgraded ? dev-lang/perl-5.18.2-r1:0/5.18 ?

What do you mean? Can I just delete the file:
/usr/lib64/perl5/site_perl/5.12.2/x86_64-linux-thread-multi/pdflib_pl.a ?

mv dont_want_this_file_anymore /somewhere
will gave the same result, but more safe no?

I moved that file. (I renamed the folder)

But when I re-run perl-cleaner, it's again added to the list

Code:

 *   Adding to list: media-libs/pdflib:5
 *     check: module /usr/lib64/perl5/site_perl/5.12.2/x86_64-linux-thread-multi/pdflib_pl.a


are results cached ???

OP: several posters have told you to remove pdflib, but you have not said what goes wrong when you try to unmerge it. Please provide the full output of emerge --unmerge media-libs/pdflib www-apps/swish-e.

I managed to solve the problem.

what I did:

placed 2 old packages (swish-e and pdflib) in /usr/local/portage/ (ebuild found in the 'attic')

emerge --deselect --ask $(qlist -IC 'perl-core/*')
emerge -1a $(qlist -IC 'virtual/perl-*')
perl-cleaner --all -- --ask


Thanks for the help.
