Description Bernhard Froehlich freebsd_committer 2014-09-12 19:30:23 UTC
I am seeing very strange things since about 3 weeks when trying to install or upgrade dns/unbound. I am pretty sure that unbound does not require opera or plexmediaserver. Last week it also tried to pull in gcc5 so I suspect either dependency resolving in PKG has some issue or probably poudriere does something stupid when creating the packages on our cluster. I have tried to build unbound on redports and all deps look sane there.

Comment 2 Bryan Drewery freebsd_committer 2014-09-12 22:03:52 UTC
My guess is that they are bundling libraries.
Comment 3 Bryan Drewery freebsd_committer 2014-09-12 22:16:15 UTC
I've blacklisted multimedia/plexmediaserver for now until it is fixed. Antoine confirmed it is bundling libexpat.
Comment 4 Bryan Drewery freebsd_committer 2014-09-12 22:18:51 UTC
And sadly opera too for bundling libstdc++ :|
Comment 5 Bryan Drewery freebsd_committer 2014-09-12 22:32:39 UTC
What we will do is:

1. Make pkg only consider shlibs inside the ldconfig path as being eligible as 'provided' by a package.
2. Make a stage-qa check to look for bundled libs and scream loudly as it is bad even without the Pkg issues (https://www.freebsd.org/doc/en/books/porters-handbook/bundled-libs.html).
3. Bump revisions on the bad ports list such that they rebuild with new pkg and register proper shared libraries.
