Subject: [gentoo-user] X USE flag
Date: Mon, 30 Oct 2006 10:05:40
1 Hi,
3 Looks like the tree was busy over the weekend :-). My regular sync and
4 emerge world this morning results in just about every x11 package
5 wanting to be rebuilt. Lots of stuff like this:
7 [ebuild R ] x11-libs/xtrans-1.0.2 USE="X%* -debug" 0 kB
8 [ebuild R ] x11-apps/mkfontdir-1.0.2 USE="X%* -debug" 0 kB
9 [ebuild R ] x11-apps/mkfontscale-1.0.2 USE="X%* -debug" 0 kB
10 [ebuild R ] x11-libs/libfontenc-1.0.3 USE="X%* -debug" 0 kB
11 [ebuild R ] x11-proto/xproto-7.0.8 USE="X%* -debug" 0 kB
12 [ebuild R ] x11-misc/util-macros-1.1.1 USE="X%* -debug" 0 kB
14 What's up with this? I've always had X in my USE, the ebuilds haven't
15 changed, a few that I checked inherit only x-modular which doesn't seem
16 to affect it either. And I'm not relishing the many hours of compiling
17 this is going to entail. So two questions:
19 1. What's causing these packages to have an X use flag at all?
20 2. Why use such a flag at all? These are X11 packages, seems kinda
21 pointless to compile such a thing without X11 support...
