Subject: [gentoo-user] Trying to solve blockage when trying to install kde-meta-4.1.2
Date: Wed, 29 Oct 2008 16:33:32
1 Hello people, i tried to install kde-meta-4.1.2 and i ran across a few
2 problems. The thing is that some packages are blocking packages required for
3 the installation
5 The following is output of portage when displaying the blocking packages
7 [uninstall ] app-crypt/qca-1.0-r2 [?]
8 [blocks b ] <app-crypt/qca-1.0-r3 ("<app-crypt/qca-1.0-r3" is blocking
9 app-crypt/qca-2.0.1-r1)
10 [blocks B ] <=x11-libs/qt-4.4.0_alpha:4 ("<=x11-libs/qt-4.4.0_alpha:4"
11 is blocking x11-libs/qt-script-4.4.2, x11-libs/qt-dbus-4.4.2,
12 x11-libs/qt-qt3support-4.4.2, x11-libs/qt-sql-4.4.2, x11-libs/qt-gui-4.4.2,
13 x11-libs/qt-svg-4.4.2, x11-libs/qt-test-4.4.2, x11-libs/qt-core-4.4.2,
14 x11-libs/qt-webkit-4.4.2, x11-libs/qt-opengl-4.4.2)
15 [blocks B ] <sys-fs/udev-114 ("<sys-fs/udev-114" is blocking
16 media-gfx/sane-backends-1.0.19-r2, media-libs/libgphoto2-2.4.2)
18 My usual solution for problems of this kind is to mercilessly unmerge any
19 packages that stand in my way, but, considering we are talking about
20 packages like qt and udev, i must admit i do not dare to follow my usual
21 strategy.
23 I guess the paths i can follow are masking some packages or unmerging some
24 packages, being confronted by such a decision and unsure of what i should
25 do, i decided to seek your advice.
27 Thanks very much in advance
29 Yours trully
