mythtv-plugins.28 is a subport defined in the same portfile as mythtv.28

Is that not permissible?

comment:2 Changed 5 years ago by mf2k (Frank Schima)

It is permissible. I do not see the same problem as Ryan, but I am running base from trunk. Maybe it is a base bug that was fixed in trunk? I think the problem might be using a "." in a port name.

Actually I see a different problem when trying to install mythtv.28:

...
--->  Fetching archive for mythtv-core.28
Error: Failed to archivefetch mythtv-core.28: p5.22-dbd-mysql must be installed with +mariadb and without +mariadb10_0+mariadb10_1+mysql4+mysql5+mysql51+mysql55+mysql56+mysql57+percona.

Maybe the default variants on the dependency(s) should be fixed so a user doing a simply sudo port install mythtv.28 does not have to jump through any hoops to get it installed.

I see now that you must have fixed the initial problem that Ryan reported.

Replying to mf2k@…:

I'd love that but I believe there are other ports that rely on the default variants being what they are now. If I were to change p5.22-dbd-mysql and py27-mysql, then they would break. I did make a change to qt5-mysql-plugin but AFAICT, I'm the only one declaring a dependency on this port and so I've changed it to suit my needs.

To me, it points out the evils of variants and how subports are the One True Way. ;)

BTW, I did another commit, moments ago, with the active_variants checks turned off so I can test the build on other OS versions.

I totally agree, I am not a fan of variants. But sometimes they are necessary.
