29-4-11 update installs old kernel (2.6.36) [Solved]

Postby dunsurfin » Fri Apr 29, 2011 15:22

SL 5 x86 K fully updated kernel 2.6.38

Today's update installed kernel 2.6.36-r1 which I had removed some time ago. If I go to remove it I find these dependencies:

>> @@ These are the packages that would be removed:
>> ## [sabayonlinux.org] media-video/videotrans-1.6.0 [1.2MB]
>> ## [sabayonlinux.org] x11-misc/electricsheep-2.7_beta11 [1.1MB]
>> ## [sabayonlinux.org] x11-themes/smplayer-themes-0.1.20 [2.6MB]
>> ## [sabayonlinux.org] media-video/smplayer-0.6.9 [7.8MB]
>> ## [sabayonlinux.org] media-video/mplayer-1.0_rc4_p20110322 [20.5MB]
>> ## [sabayonlinux.org] app-misc/lirc-0.8.7 [3.4MB]
>> ## [sabayonlinux.org] media-libs/svgalib-1.9.25-r1#2.6.36-sabayon [5.2MB]
>> ## [sabayonlinux.org] sys-kernel/linux-sabayon-2.6.36-r1 [100.2MB]

Is this an error?

Seems that Lirc depends on svgalib and there are no versions for other (later kernels)
This only happens on x86 I see. I suspect this is an automagic dependency that needs to be resolved in lirc configure.

Fixed in Entropy in a couple of minutes. (made svgalib kernel independ) Doesn't solve the automagic in lirc but at least doesn't pull in the kernel. :D
