Hi,

I just noticed that when I do 'emerge -avuDN world' not all packages get 
updated to the last stable version:

> $ emerge -pvuDN world > > These are the packages that would be merged, in order: > > Calculating world dependencies ... done! > > Total: 0 packages, Size of downloads: 0 kB
...but than...
> $ emerge -pv dbus > > These are the packages that would be merged, in order: > > Calculating dependencies ... done! > [ebuild U ] sys-apps/dbus-1.0.2 [0.62-r2] USE="X -debug -doc (-selinux) > (-gtk%*) (-mono%) (-python%*) (-qt3%*) (-qt4%*)" 1,368 kB > > Total: 1 package (1 upgrade), Size of downloads: 1,368 kB
... so I can update to sys-apps/dbus-1.0.2. Also, I see that there are packages that need <sys-apps/dbus-0.90:
> $ equery d dbus > [ Searching for packages depending on dbus... ] > app-cdr/k3b-0.12.17 (hal? <sys-apps/dbus-0.90) > (hal ? >=sys-apps/dbus-0.30) > (hal ? >=sys-apps/dbus-0.30) > [...]
... so shouldn't portage prevent me from updating to dbus-1.0.2 since there are ebuilds that depend on <sys-apps/dbus-0.90? -- The world is a tragedy to those who feel, but a comedy to those who think.(Horace Walpole) * Dorin Scutarasu, www.info.UAIC.ro
