Subject: [gentoo-user] udev-181 and kmod vs module-init-tools
Date: Mon, 19 Mar 2012 15:49:12
1 udev-181 merge is blocked because :
3 [blocks B ] sys-apps/module-init-tools
4 ("sys-apps/module-init-tools" is blocking sys-apps/kmod-7)
5 [blocks B ] sys-apps/kmod ("sys-apps/kmod" is blocking
6 sys-apps/module-init-tools-3.16-r1)
8 * Error: The above package list contains packages which cannot be
9 * installed at the same time on the same system.
11 (sys-apps/kmod-7::gentoo, ebuild scheduled for merge) pulled in by
12 >=sys-apps/kmod-5 required by (sys-fs/udev-181::gentoo, ebuild
13 scheduled for merge)
15 (sys-apps/module-init-tools-3.16-r1::gentoo, installed) pulled in by
16 >=sys-apps/module-init-tools-3.2 required by
17 (virtual/modutils-0::gentoo, installed)
19 Googling, it looks like kmod is the replacement for module-init-tools,
20 so it should just work, unless of course any packages explicitly
21 depend on module-init-tools instead of the virtual...
23 However, module-init-tools is part of system profile and I get the
24 scary red text and 10-second countdown when I try to unmerge, so I
25 chickened out and did a ctrl-c. :)
27 Have any of you already changed from module-init-tools to kmod?
28 Anything to be afraid of? It's a remote machine and I can boot rescue
29 CD if it breaks, but I'd rather not have to do that.
