Hello all;

I was doing an emerge -uD world today (and I'm on ~x86, so I know my system is liable to things like this; I'm warning more than complaining) when, after doing a /etc/init.d/apache2 restart my webserver (which I use mostly for playing chess with my friends and some blogging) greeted me with a nice gentoo linux "oops, not configured" page.

So I checked, and:

Fact) The ebuild overwrote index.html at my document root.

Observation) After checking, this particular last ebuild seems like a major overhaul over the previous.

Fact) Nothing really worked anymore.

Observation) Config files seem to have changed locations; replacing them, or redirecting them to the previous ones, doesn't help.

Observation) Apache's child processes seem to segfault given the default configuration?

Speculation) This ebuild is buggy, and dangerous.


Am I right? Should I file this as a bug?

Fact 1: You missed the new use flags.
The rest of it: You failed to read the docs.

Thanks! I did a search before posting, but didn't find that. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Now, perhaps I'm also blind and not just a bad searcher, but why did it overwrite my index.html? I take it it has something to do with net-www/gentoo-webroot-default, but is this normal or expected behaviour?

Thanks again, I guess I'm sort of blind after all. Still, I'm now of the opinion that that flag is dangerous and should be reverted, as in becoming simply something like default-htdocs; I see no reason it should be on by default, or barring that why it shouldn't check for a previous index.html.

These settings don't seem sane to me, not even for ~x86. But then again, I don't know shit, so I leave it to you and developers, i. e. people that know what they're talking about.

But come on... isn't that particular behaviour a little... dangerous?

Anyway, thanks for the clarification.

I partially agree, but the developers don´t - see https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=83575
