There's already bug #268724.
Anyway, app-admin/eselect-python probably will have to be added to system
set for a suggested feature for EAPI="5".

Well put. I would agree that a simple warning should be given before
removing a system package or a package that system must have, especially
portage.
Maybe what portage needs is a reverse -n feature. Instead of adding
something to the world file, it removes a unwanted package from the
world file and then the user could use --depclean to remove that package
and its no longer needed friends. I assume this is doable.



You can already use --depclean for this.

So there is already a option that is the reverse of -n ?

Dale

:-) :-)



You would first have to define the reverse to avoid misunderstanding.

--noreplace (-n)
Skips the packages specified on the command-line that
have already been installed.


Reverse: Install packages that are not already installed

- This is what Portage does by default

Reverse: Skips packages that are not installed

- Makes no sense with installation actions. Is this what you mean?

pena betelgeuse # emerge --depclean foobar
>>> No packages selected for removal by depclean

I should also add that this is not a user support mailing list as
there's gentoo-user for that purpose. I think the original purpose of
the thread was already fulfilled.

Definition of reverse -n option. emerge --remove-from-world pidgin
That would remove the entry pidgin from the world file. Then a user
could use --depclean to remove pidgin and other dependencies that are no
longer needed. There would be no need to use -C in that case.


I am subscribed to -user as well. I been using Gentoo since the 1.4
days. This is about improving portage which is a good thing to talk
about here. The devs do it, not the user. ;-) Also, I already know
how to use portage pretty good. I'm not asking for support just trying
to improve things.

So then how was the original problem resolved? Sorry, I missed that
(and can't seem to find a resolution in this thread).

Hi,

(although this is no user support list...)

See `man emerge`:

--depclean (-c)
[...]
Depclean serves as a dependency aware version of --unmerge. When given
one or more atoms, it will unmerge matched packages that have no reverse
dependencies. Use --depclean together with --verbose to show reverse
dependencies.

Patrick.

There's already an open bug in Portage and the system set won't be
changed for this.

I categorize it as user support when trying to explain things that you
can find out in the Portage man pages. I know we don't do a good job at
communicating new things to users but improving that belongs to an
another thread.

So it's not resolved, there just won't be any changes?

There's nothing more to discuss on this mailing list so from the mailing
list stand point the the thread is done. Any implementation details etc
belong to bugzilla.
