Subject: [gentoo-dev] virtual/glu: x11-base/xfree-4.1.0-r2, x11-libs/gtkglarea-1.2.2
Date: Wed, 26 Sep 2001 19:42:21
1 x11-libs/gtkglarea-1.2.2 depends on libGLU specifically, but the ebuild
2 claims to depend on virtual/glu. This would be fine, except that the
3 x11-base/xfree-4.1.0-r2 ebuild claims to provide virtual/glu but does
4 not provide a libGLU.
6 This means that if xfree is installed but media-libs/mesa-glu is not,
7 and you do 'emerge x11-libs/gtkglare', portage will go ahead and try,
8 but the configure will fail.
10 So, should xfree be changed to not provide virtual/glu, or is there
11 something else going on?
13 Thanks,
