multilibpkg 1.2.120824 wants to install the packages I excluded


Current64: multilibpkg 1.2.120824 wants to install the packages I excluded. See attached screenshot.


Note: The only thing I changed is the display to fit on an 80-column window.

Hello,

Sorry but there's no way to blacklist the packages in multilibpkg. It seems that I forgot to remove the comment you are refering to (in /etc/multilibpkg/multilibpkg.conf) in the latest revision. Indeed, since 1.2.120804, the update mechanism handles as an update any packages of the "64-bit part of the multilib" which is not installed. This is explicitly said in the RELEASE-NOTES.

Greetings.

From the 1.2.120804 release notes:
Quote:
Includes a full revision of the update mechanism, which now, handles as an update, any package of the "64-bit part of the multilib" which is not installed. This allows users to not have to re-install all of the "64-bit part of the mulitlib" each time a package is added into it.
I am a not-more-than-necessary person, not an everything-and-all one. So the above is not the choice I personally would have made.

Hello,

In this case you can simply use the latest revision that does not include this feature, that is 1.1.110412. But keep in mind that this revision includes the mirrors only for 13.0 to 13.37 and -current, but not for 14.0.

Greetings.
