Subject: [gentoo-user] Moving to xorg-x11-7.0 (Modular X)
Date: Thu, 09 Mar 2006 07:04:57
1 I am trying to move my system over to modular X, but I'm having a few
2 troubles. There are 4 packages that don't seem like they should be
3 bringing in virtual/x11-6.8, but they are.
5 Also, it's really confusing trying to figure out /why/ they are bringing in
6 virtual-x11. emerge -pvt is giving confusing results; basically saying
7 that virtual-x11 is coming in because of packages which don't even have an
8 optional dependency on X. :( I tried using equery g, but that actually
9 says the packages I'm trying to bring in /won't/ need virtual/x11-6.8.
11 Anyway, I've got an emerge capture and the relevant equery output, I'd love
12 it if someone could look at them and tell me what I need to do to complete
13 the migration. I didn't want to post them to the list because they are
14 about 38k...
