Subject: [gentoo-user] Do NOT install evolution
Date: Sat, 22 Apr 2006 11:21:20
1 Hello!
3 Recently, I deinstalled evolution, as I don't use it and it's thus
4 just a waste for me. At a subsequent "emerge -Duvat world", I see:
6 [nomerge ] gnome-base/gnome-2.12.3 USE="-accessibility cdr -dvdr hal"
7 [nomerge ] net-analyzer/gnome-nettool-1.4.1 USE="-debug"
8 [ebuild N ] net-analyzer/traceroute-1.4_p12-r5 USE="-static" 79 kB
9 [ebuild N ] mail-client/evolution- USE="crypt -dbus -debug doc -gstreamer -ipv6 -kerberos -krb4 -ldap -mono nntp -pda -profile spell ssl" 11,233 kB
11 As you can see, mail-client/evolution is going to be reinstalled as
12 as a dependency of gnome-base/gnome. I dislike that...
14 Is there a way to make emerge/Portage pretend that mail-client/evolution
15 is already installed WITHOUT actually installing it? I do NOT want
16 to deinstall gnome-base/gnome and I also don't really want to
17 put gnome-base/gnome in a local overlay.
19 Thanks a lot,
21 Alexander Skwar
