^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ This seems to be a growing trend, so let me address it here...Do not use --force to get an ebuild into the tree that has unsatisfiable dependencies. --force should only be used in circumstances where it is the only option. Breaking deps for an arch is not what it is intended for. -- Mark Loeser email - halcy0n AT gentoo DOT org email - mark AT halcy0n DOT com web - http://www.halcy0n.com
