Subject: [gentoo-user] How do I update world?
Date: Wed, 18 Jun 2008 17:31:40
I have two problems related to world on my ~amd64 system.  I upgraded
gcc and finished the emerge -ev system, but I can't do the same to
world because of blockage.  Specifically --

!!! Multiple versions within a single package slot have been pulled
!!! into the dependency graph, resulting in a slot conflict:


  ('ebuild', '/', 'www-client/mozilla-firefox-', 'merge') pulled in by
    ('ebuild', '/', 'dev-haskell/gtk2hs-', 'merge')

  ('ebuild', '/', 'www-client/mozilla-firefox-3.0', 'merge') pulled in by
    ('ebuild', '/', 'x11-plugins/noscript-1.6.9', 'merge')


  ('ebuild', '/', 'x11-proto/printproto-1.0.3', 'merge') pulled in by
    ('ebuild', '/', 'x11-base/xorg-server-1.4.2', 'merge')

  ('ebuild', '/', 'x11-proto/printproto-1.0.4', 'merge') pulled in by
    ('ebuild', '/', 'www-client/mozilla-firefox-', 'merge')
    ('ebuild', '/', 'x11-libs/libXprintUtil-1.0.1', 'merge')
    (and 8 more)

This mess started before firefox-3.0.0 was released, but I have since
upgraded.  I still get this complaint about  I have demerged
dev-haskell/gtk2hs, yet emerge -pev world still wants to drag it in
(it shows as [  N ]) and that apparently wants to drag in the old

I have edited /var/lib/portage/world and gtk2hs is not present.
Firefox is present but has no version number.

So, two questions:

    How do I tell portage that gtk2hs is not part of world any more?

    How do I clear these blockages so I can emerge -ev world?
