Subject: [gentoo-user] Trying to upgrade to KDE 4.5.1. FUBAR
Date: Tue, 07 Sep 2010 23:22:06
1 Hi folks,
3 I think this is FUBAR in the most serious terms here. What I did to
4 screw this up. I read somewhere that when you install KDE4 and remove
5 KDE3, you can get rid of the qt3support USE flag. Well, I had forgot
6 about getting rid of that until I just happened to be looking at the USE
7 line in make.conf for something else and saw it still there. Well, I
8 removed it and did a emerge -uvDNa world and let portage go for it. It
9 rebuilt quite a few packages then stopped with a failure. That was a
10 couple days ago. I don't have that error anymore. Well, after that
11 went belly up I just added the flag back thinking I'll get back to where
12 I was and figure it out later. Let's just say portage doesn't like that
13 either.
15 Where I am now. I'm wanting to upgrade to KDE 4.5.1 and was sort of
16 doing all the above and this at once. Right now, I'm getting a WHOLE
17 LOT of these sort of errors:
19 Calculating dependencies... done!
21 !!! Multiple package instances within a single package slot have been pulled
22 !!! into the dependency graph, resulting in a slot conflict:

58 I only posted here a SMALL portion of this. Can someone explain, in a
59 way that I can understand, how to get past these? I have never been
60 able to make much sense of these things. They seem to always be bass
61 ackwards of what makes sense to me. Just pick one and explain what
62 portage is trying to tell me so I can fix the others one by one,
63 hopefully anyway.
65 I get that I need to unmerge something so that it can emerge a new
66 version. I just can't figure out what is what.
68 Thanks in advance for anyone that can help me have a light bulb
69 moment. O_O
