1 After realizing that most packages I was installing, I used
2 package.keywords and ~amd64, so I went ahead and jumped---I have started
3 using ACCEPT_KEYWORDS for ~amd64 in /etc/make.conf . I think most of the
4 inconsistencies have been ironed out, but it has taken some days. One
5 glaring problem involves ruby. I need texlive, and I want to install
6 texlive 2011, and I had installed it; however, now ruby is standing in my
7 way.
9 On, I see some solutions, involving patches. One is a
10 patch for ruby (dev-lang/ruby-1.8.7_p352 ). The other is a patch for
11 glibc 2.14.1 .
13 I'm not sure how to handle this, but I'm pretty sure I don't want to mess
14 around with a personal overlay of glibc.
16 Now, unfortunately, after an emerge -avuD world, I have also run emerge
17 --depclean, which cleared out every package involved with texlive. I think
18 texlive-pictures-2011 and texlive-science-2001, possible also others, are
19 depending on ruby.
21 I could also not find an accessible and up to date explanation of
22 installing texlive.
24 Can any one guide me towards understanding how to proceed? I would rather
25 not spend the next week re-installing my system. Perhaps I should back
26 out of ~amd64 to amd64?
28 Thanks,
