Subject: [gentoo-user] infinite loop of with @preserved-rebuild
Date: Fri, 09 May 2014 12:50:42
I am switching a system from nvidia-drivers to nouveau.  I changed the
entries in make.conf and did emerge --depclean nvidia-drivers.

One result was about a dozen packages to @preserved-rebuild, including
two webkit-gtk and libreoffice (so hours to rebuild).

The overnight emerge @preserved-rebuild finished without error, but at
the end announced that I again needed to emerge about a dozen packages,
again including the two webkit-gtk versions and libreoffice.

The full output (see below) mentions several nvidia files.

How do I break this cycle?
