lapack-reference build errors

Posted: Mon Sep 21, 2015 13:34

I've been running

Code: Select all

emerge @preserved-rebuild
and this attempts to emerge sci-libs/lapack-reference-9999::science (here's the ebuild, if somehow this is ambiguous), but this gives the error:

Code: Select all

Error: /var/tmp/portage/sci-libs/lapack-reference-9999/image//etc/env.d/alternatives/lapack/reference already present. You need ot remove it before adding it again
I have tried removing /var/tmp/portage/sci-libs/lapack-reference-9999/image//etc/env.d/alternatives/lapack/reference with

Code: Select all

rm -r /var/tmp/portage/sci-libs/lapack-reference-9999/image//etc/env.d/alternatives/lapack/reference
but still I keep getting this error. I have added a new issue for this question in the science overlay GitHub repo, but in my limited experience (granted I've only added one other issue there) they aren't all that efficient at getting me a solution, so I thought I'd ask this question here too.

Thanks for your time,
