Subject: [gentoo-dev] gdk-pixbuf problem possible solution....
Date: Mon, 24 Jun 2002 14:29:33
1 I don't know if the problem was already discussed here, but i want to
2 propose a possible solution. The problem is that gnome related stuff
3 requires gdk-pixbuf to be compiled with gnome (gnome-libs) support.
4 But i think the problem is not in the gdk-pixbuf ebuild. In fact you
5 could use a optional gnome support in gdk-pixbuf with use value. Later,
6 looking in /var/db/pck/...../RDEPEND and USE you could easily see the
7 REAL package dependency. So the gnome ebuild should look if gdk-pixbuf
8 was compiled with or without gnome-libs support, and require it to be
9 re-emerged with gnome support if necessary.
10 Looking to RDEPEND and USE files could also easily solve two other
11 problem: re-emerging packages that depend on a library when it is
12 upgraded / unmerged or unmerge these packages when they can't be
13 compiled without the package that has been unmerged.
14 One last suggestion: i thing it should be easy to implement, and very
15 usefull, to see what use value are involved in meging a specific package
16 (and if they are included (ex: gnome) or excluded (ex: -avi) ).
