Description (last modified by RayPlante) (diff)

I tracked the cause of #238 (lsstpkg: wrong version of package removed) to a bug in the eups list command. lsstpkg's remove command uses eups list to determine the installation directory for the package. I have found that the wrong directory will be returned by eups list when the following is true:

  1. the version is explicitly provided
  2. the version of the package is not declared
  3. there is another version of the package that is currently setup.

The installation directory of that gets returned in this case is that of the currently setup version.

The following patch to bin/eups_setup.pm fixes the problem:

<       if (!$setup_prod_dir) {         # not setup in environment
>       if ($version) {
>          warn "I don't know anything about product "$prod $version"
>       }
>       elsif (!$setup_prod_dir) {              # not setup in environment

I see in eups' CVS archive that eups_setup.pm has changed substantially and the latest version may have fixed this problem. I have not yet tested it.

If you can provide a simple how-to-repeat I'll see if I've fixed this particular problem.

As far as I can tell, this problem does not exist in the re-implementation of EUPS.
