Subject: [gentoo-user] portage python USE flags.
Date: Thu, 19 May 2011 00:31:59
1 I have a quick question. I sync'd a bit ago and noticed something a bit
2 odd. Here it is:
4 [ebuild U *] sys-apps/portage-2.2.0_alpha34 [2.2.0_alpha33]
5 USE="(ipc) -build -doc -epydoc -python2 -python3 (-selinux)"
6 LINGUAS="-pl" 794 kB
8 I know portage needs python but check out the USE flags. Both python2
9 and python3 are disabled. Shouldn't one of those be enabled? Even
10 better, shouldn't portage complain a bit about this before emerging?
11 Thing is, I'm tempted to enable them both. 2.7 is currently being used
12 but won't 3.1 be used eventually? Should I enable both or just emerge as
13 is?
15 That is the unstable version so if this is a problem, I want to file a
16 bug before someone else runs into this and ends up with a borked system.
18 Thanks.
