Default emerge --depclean: !!! sys-apps/less is part of your system

Hi,

after updating my system I tried "emerge --depclean as
recommended by portage, and I received this warning:
------
Calculating dependencies... done!

Calculating removal order...

!!! 'sys-apps/less' (virtual/pager) is part of your system profile.
!!! Unmerging it may be damaging to your system.
------

Why does portage want to unmerge sys-apps/less when it is
a part of system?

Jarry

I didn't like it either so I've been adding it to
/var/lib/portage/world just to stop it. I've seen this on one machine
or another for 6 months to a year I think.

Some time ago emerge wanted to uninstall "nano" - part of system.
Now "less". I just tried to update one more comp, and guess what?

# emerge --depclean

!!! 'sys-fs/udev' (virtual/dev-manager) is part of your system profile.
!!! Unmerging it may be damaging to your system.

>>> Waiting 10 seconds before starting...
>>> (Control-C to abort)...
Press Ctrl-C to Stop in: 10 9

LOL, what the hell is going on? Porgage went crazy or what?

This has been in unstable for many months now. Basically there's now a
virtual for $EDITOR and $PAGER so you can pick the one you want. If you
don't pick one, portage will take the default and --depclean is likely
to remove the others that are not in world.

This was all discussed to death months ago :-)

Just add your editor and pager of choice to world and continue as
normal. It's not a big issue - you already know you want less and have
no intention of removing it, so just add it like any other package.

$ cat /etc/env.d/99editor
# Configuration file for eselect
# This file has been automatically generated.
EDITOR="/usr/bin/vi"

You could replace for nano, or indeed add both in world file. Ditto for pager
(more/less/most, etc).

I'm not sure about the udev message though.

'eselect pager list' and 'eselect editor list' will show what alternatives are available (with a write-in candidate support).

I have "less" set as my pager, and despite of that portage
wants to uninstall it. What am I missing?

It's not in world.

Because eselect's setting of pager does not correlate with emerge's
world file. You should add less to the world file e.g. by running
"emerge --noreplace less".

It's not in world.


But it was the same in the last week, and yet portage could
live with it. Why it suddenly wants to uninstall something
that is part of system profile? And at the same time it says
it might damage my system. Really nice...

Honestly, I do not understand this at all. Things worked for
years, now suddenly cause problems, and we call it "progress".
What is going to be it tomorrow? bash, tar, or grep?
