Subject: [gentoo-portage-dev] portage-2.1_pre2 and new use flag showing with emerge -p
Date: Sun, 25 Dec 2005 22:19:37
Message-Id: 43AF1AD1.8050703@gentoo.org
1 With the past versions I have become accustomed to always having -v when
2 doing --pretend. After updating to to pre1 I got the new output:
3
4 pena xorg-server # emerge -pv alsa-driver
5
6 These are the packages that I would merge, in order:
7
8 Calculating dependencies ...done!
9 [ebuild U ] media-sound/alsa-driver-1.0.10-r1 [1.0.10] USE="-debug
10 -doc oss" 0 kB

14 Ok. Fine I thought some format change. Well the first thing is that I
15 don't like USE= being in white. It just doesn't fit in while the stuff
16 around is colorful, but that might be just me.
17
18 The real is issue is that it took me this long to notice that emerge -p
19 seems to show new use flags added since the old version:
20
21 pena xorg-server # emerge -p alsa-driver
22
23 These are the packages that I would merge, in order:
24
25 Calculating dependencies ...done!
26 [ebuild U ] media-sound/alsa-driver-1.0.10-r1 [1.0.10] USE="-debug"
27
28 I propose we improve the emerge -pv output to be something like the
29 following:
30
31 [ebuild U ] media-sound/alsa-driver-1.0.10-r1 [1.0.10] NEW="-debug"
32 OLD="-doc oss" 0 kB
33
34 This would keep the functionality with --verbose.
