Hi,

I did my weekly updates last night and as always I run --depclean -p
afterwards to see if anything needs cleaning out.  I seem to have ran
into something that doesn't make sense.  This is what I get:

> root@smoker / # emerge -p --depclean > > * Always study the list of packages to be cleaned for any obvious > * mistakes. Packages that are part of the world set will always > * be kept. They can be manually added to this set with > * `emerge --noreplace <atom>`. Packages that are listed in > * package.provided (see portage(5)) will be removed by > * depclean, even if they are part of the world set. > * > * As a safety measure, depclean will not remove any packages > * unless *all* required dependencies have been resolved.

I have ran emerge -1va =x11-libs/qt-assistant-4.4.2-r1 =x11-libs/qt-xmlpatterns-4.4.2 =dev-python/PyQt4-4.4.4-r1 so that it will re-emerge all the packages it was fussing about. I get the same thing. I also ran revdep-rebuild -i and it comes back clean. I then did this, emerge -v1a =dev-python/qscintilla-python-2.3.2 =x11-libs/qscintilla-2.3.2 =dev-python/PyQt-3.17.6 =x11-libs/qt-gui-4.4.2-r1 =x11-libs/qt-dbus-4.4.2 and still get the same thing. Anybody ran into this? Anybody have a clue why it keeps giving this message? Do I need to rebuild something else that I missed to clear this up? Dale :-) :-)
