Situation: I have ffmpeg on my netbook, emerged without the "sdl" USE
flag.  I've run into a scenario where I want it emerged with sdl.  The
usual response is to to add the "sdl" USE flag (either in make.conf or
in package.use) and simply "emerge ffmpeg" again.  But...

======================================================================

[aa1][root][~] emerge ffmpeg
Calculating dependencies... done!
[ebuild   R    ] media-video/ffmpeg-0.10.3  USE="sdl*" 

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

media-video/ffmpeg:0

  (media-video/ffmpeg-0.10.3::gentoo, ebuild scheduled for merge) pulled in by
    (no parents that aren't satisfied by other packages in this slot)

  (media-video/ffmpeg-0.10.3::gentoo, installed) pulled in by
    >=media-video/ffmpeg-0.10.2[X=,encode=,jpeg2k=,mp3=,sdl=,theora=,threads=,truetype=,vaapi=,vdpau=,x264=] required by (virtual/ffmpeg-0.10.2-r1::gentoo, installed)


!!! Enabling --newuse and --update might solve this conflict.
!!! If not, it might help emerge to give a more specific suggestion.

====================================================================

  What is it whining about?!?!  I want to overwrite it, not pull in a
second version side-by-side.  I tried the suggestion, but no luck...


====================================================================

[aa1][root][~] emerge --newuse ffmpeg
Calculating dependencies... done!
>>> Auto-cleaning packages...
>>> No outdated packages were found on your system.
[aa1][root][~] emerge --newuse --update ffmpeg Calculating dependencies... done!
>>> Auto-cleaning packages...
>>> No outdated packages were found on your system.
[aa1][root][~] emerge --update ffmpeg Calculating dependencies... done!
>>> Auto-cleaning packages...
>>> No outdated packages were found on your system.
[aa1][root][~] ==================================================================== I said "screw it" (or words to that effect<G>), unmerged ffmpeg, and re-emerged it. The emerge is running as I type. -- Walter Dnes <waltdnes@××××××××.org> I don't run "desktop environments"; I run useful applications
