Emerging Evolution screwed thing up.

Post by Ric » Sat Nov 24, 2007 17:17

I unmerged thunderbird and emerged Evolution, that took a couple hours to emerge (??) and now that its finished, evolution is not there, portato doesn't work.( even after re emerging it,) and Compiz doesn't work.
What went wrong.?
I reviewed the emerge logs, it looks like emerging evolution also installs several gnome pieces, possibly leaving some kde pieces messed up or overwritten ( then evolution failed at 17/24). I can't just re- emerge kde, can't emerge gnome, I'll use the disc to fix this.
Act weird. It supports freedom.
It gives others permission to act weird too.

I had to remove the global USE flag "pda" from /etc/make.conf in order to get Evolution to compile. And I had to use:

Code: Select all

FEATURES=-sandbox emerge -uv1 epiphany
to get Epiphany to compile.
