Subject: [gentoo-user] Why would portage not update a package?
Date: Mon, 31 Oct 2011 03:56:52
1 Okay, I finished an "emerge --update --deep world" this morning. Everything
2 was cool.
4 This afternoon, however, I decide I want to install eclipse to migrate a
5 windows java development effort to my gentoo box.
7 Did an "emerge --pretend dev-util/eclipse-sdk" to see what I was going to get.
9 I was surprised to see it wanting to emerge ant-core because I thought I
10 already had it in place, so a quick eix call results in:
12 dnebinger@butthead ~ $ eix ant-core
13 Search results: 1
14 * dev-java/ant-core
15 Available versions: 1.5.4-r2 1.6.2-r5 ~1.6.5-r2
16 Installed: 1.6.2
17 Homepage:
18 Description: Java-based build tool similar to 'make' that uses
19 XML configuration files.
21 So obviously it is in there, in my world file and everything.
23 The question is, shouldn't portage have updated to the latest -r5 ebuild as a
24 result of the "--update --deep world" update previously?
