Subject: [gentoo-portage-dev] [PATCH] missing-rebuild package set
Date: Sun, 03 Aug 2008 14:03:28
1 The following patchs add a library dependency rebuilder as a package
2 set, @missing-rebuild, to portage-2.2_rc6. Similar to the --library
3 flag in revdep-rebuild, the user can additionally emerge the set of
4 packages containing consumers of libraries matched by a (python)
5 regular expression; however, until a better solution is found, the
6 regexp must be passed through the LIBRARY environment variable to
7 enable that feature.
9 Known issues: I expect some false positives. I've inserted hard coded
10 directory/library masks for those I've found. I noticed a situation
11 that required a second emerge due to a provider package satisfying 3
12 conditions: 1) the package is installed and an updated version is
13 available in its slot, 2) the updated version is in the set due to a
14 dependency of another package (or it may contains a broken binary),
15 and 3) a consumer package of a library within the updated package is
16 emerged before the updated dependency is emerged, causing a package to
17 be compiled against the old library before the library version
18 changes. I guess that if a package is already installed, it is not
19 necessarily placed before its consumer packages in the merge order.
21 Attached are patches for pym/portage/dbapi/,
22 pym/portage/sets/ and /usr/share/portage/config/sets.conf.
23 These can also be found in the project's repository:
26 I warmly welcome all feedback, in particular any suggestions to remove
27 the necessity of directory and library masks in /etc/revdep-rebuild/*,
28 which I've been unable to entirely avoid.
