I tried putting a "-gtk -gtk2" use flag on it, but when I do "emerge --pretend avahi" it still says that it's going to install gtkhtml. Are there any flags I'm missing?
And remember to look on the bright side - you're learning!
True. Although if I don't have it resolved soon, I'll just end up wiping my system and re-installing Sabayon.
This is really bizarre. Everything I've found in my searches indicates that gtkhtml depends on avahi, but I haven't seen anything
to suggest that the reverse is true. So why does portage think that avahi depends on gtkthml? It just makes no sense.
