Yes, I'm a newbie and yes, I have read the portage section of the gentoo handbook but I am haveing a hard time getting around this "blocked package" issue. It goes like this:
- Code: Select all
[blocks B ] media-libs/jpeg:0 ("media-libs/jpeg:0" is blocking media-libs/libjpeg-turbo-1.1.1)
* Error: The above package list contains packages which cannot be
* installed at the same time on the same system.
(media-libs/jpeg-8c::gentoo, ebuild scheduled for merge) pulled in by
media-libs/jpeg required by (media-libs/imlib2-9999::sabayon, installed)
(media-libs/libjpeg-turbo-1.1.1::gentoo, installed) pulled in by
media-libs/libjpeg-turbo required by @selected
media-libs/libjpeg-turbo:0[static-libs] required by (virtual/jpeg-0::gentoo, ebuild scheduled for merge)
I found a thread that says to:
> Set the useflags for virtual/jpeg identical to
> media-libs/libjpeg-turbo ones and try again ..
My /etc/portage/package.use has:
# New splashutils wants static-libs see Gentoo bug #356231
Now what? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
