It's not about the documentation. It's mostly about portage actually. Certain sets of USE flags create circular dependencies that portage doesn't deal with well or at all. Packages then fail to build and bugs get posted. What did the user do wrong? Nothing. What can the user do? Figure out where the circular dependency is and manually solve it. Should the steps on how to do that be added to the Stage1/2 install guide? I'd think not. -- Jason Stubbs -- gentoo-doc@g.o mailing list
