Hi there,

With an `emerge -pv world` today I've noticed an anomaly with vlv &  
ffmpeg. It initially came up with a portage message which reported  
AFAIR a package would be slotted for the first time. I uninstalled  
vlc just for the moment, and upgraded ffmpeg to the latest version.  
Still I see this problem:


901 ~ $ emerge -pv ffmpeg

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

I would (obviously) prefer not to have two different versions of  
ffmpeg on my system, and you'll see that the version pulled in by vlc  
has the mp3 USE flag forcibly disabled. I don't know that I've ever  
actually used vlc, so this is probably unimportant, but I'd like to  
have it installed just in case I want to stream video around the  
house in the future. Does anyone know if there's a workaround for this?

Cheers,

Stroller.
