Emerge world problems

Post by KRA » Wed Aug 15, 2007 21:52

I have sabayon 3.4a installed and thought I'd run emerge world now, but I get some strange result.

Code: Select all

[blocks B     ] <net-print/hplip-1.7.4a-r1 (is blocking net-print/cups-1.2.12)
[blocks B     ] net-misc/vnc (is blocking net-misc/tightvnc-1.3.9)
[blocks B     ] <dev-libs/boost-1.34.0 (is blocking dev-util/boost-build-1.34.1)
[blocks B     ] net-misc/tightvnc (is blocking net-misc/vnc-4.1.2-r3)

Total: 594 packages (412 upgrades, 3 downgrades, 91 new, 2 in new slots, 86 reinstalls, 4 blocks), Size of downloads: 2,326,882 kB
This is the end of the output (I can add more if needed)

I have the following questions.

- what's up with these blocks ?
- why the downgrades ?
- and why does it want to emerge gnome, when I clearly state -gnome -gtk -gtk1 -gtk2 in make.conf ?

I also tried the updatescript for gentoo and get the same result. Is there a better way to do this? Possible somehow I can choose what I want to update? There are quite a few applications I don't want to update (like openoffice and all the games) And it's a big waste of time compiling those.

to get to world update you have to work out the bumps till you are in the clear. Listen to what portage is telling you and do it.
