1 Hi!
3 I'm very new to gentoo. I've installed qmail and wanted to use the same
4 patches that I'm used to so I did it the old way, download source, patch
5 and install. Now, how do I tell Portage/emerge that qmail is actually
6 already installed? (How should I have done it?)
8 Also, when doing an 'emerge -tDu world' I found that adding a specific
9 version to the spamassassin entry in /var/lib/portage/world lets me keep
10 spamassassin 3.0.1 but doing the same with openldap 2.2.19 doesn't. The
11 reason for emerge wanting to downgrade is courier-imap but in
12 courier-imap-3.0.8.ebuild it only says 'ldap? (
13 >=net-nds/openldap-1.2.11 )' and 2.2.19 is >= 1.2.11 . How do I make
14 emerge let me keep openldap 2.2.19?
