Subject: [gentoo-dev] BIND masked issue
Date: Thu, 20 Sep 2001 08:31:22
1 Hey all, I have a question. I was informed that bind-8.2.3 package was
2 failing to emerge due to being masked. On further investigation of that I
3 discovered that it's not masked and only noticed the following things.
5 DEPEND="virtual/glibc sys-apps/groff sys-devel/flex"
6 RDEPEND="virtual/glibc"
8 I removed the RDEPEND cause it seems redundant, and it's not like glibc
9 will ever not be installed anyway.
11 I then changed the depend line to
12 DEPEND="virtual/glibc
13 >=sys-apps/groff-1.16.1
14 >=sys-devel/flex-2.5.4"
16 My question is, is the way it was correct? Can we do that (sys-apps/groff)
17 notation for non-virtual DEPENDS? I woulnd't advise it anyway as I'd think
18 it best if we only allow packages to emerge against DEPENDS that we know to
19 work.
