eve-paladin failed to rebuild previously removed factory-board ebuild

Project Member Reported by, Jan 22 2018

Issue description removed the factory-board ebuild.  Today, introduced an unrelated change to vboot_reference.  factory-board depends on vboot_reference, so eve-paladin decided to rebuild it.  Since it was no longer there, the build failed with error "chromeos-base/factory-board-1.0.0-r9::eve-private (masked by: need to rebuild from source)".

This looks like another instance of, where stale stuff is left over in the chroot.
The next run created a new chroot and failed with the same error.  Checking to see why a fresh chroot still contains the removed package.

Bumping priority, since this is apparently blocking commits to vboot_reference.

Can we just revert while we solve the underlying problem?

this is WAI from the packaging side, more or less.  if you want to purge the package, you can add a chroot hook script to remove it everywhere.  look at src/scripts/chroot_version_hooks.d/135_clean_linux-3.4 as an example.
Re #5: Shouldn't a fresh chroot not contain the removed package, though?  I just created a new chroot on my workstation and factory-board wasn't there.

yes, a new chroot (or really blowing /build/$BOARD away) would not re-install the package.  but most paladins (by design) don't do either of those things.

This build seems to have started from a fresh chroot, but then it failed with the factory-board references: .  Am I missing something there?
hungte@, could you take a look and see if you missed a step when removing factory-board?

Re#5 We may need to do this often and I'm not sure if that will mess up chroot version....?

I'm planning to add a dummy ebuild to help existing chroot devices to empty the dependency between factory-board and vboot_reference. Then in the future after most paladins have been updated, we can remove the dummy one.

1) I see the same issue with the local build. Note that I have vboot_reference along with a few other packages in my cros_workon list. Going through repo sync, deleting /build/eve, recreating chroot didn't help.
2) The workaround from #12 works (still building, but got past that point, so no surprises).

CL merged. Let me know if you see more problems.
Thanks for the quick fix!

The next eve-paladin run passed BuildPackages with the original vboot change:
