I have installed xorg-x11-7.0 a few weeks ago, everything fine. I now want
to start using a Java application, and this causes problems, the application
complains about libXp.so.6 not being found. Checked the same Java
application on another box running xorg-x11-6.8.2-r6, no problem.
Tried revdep-rebuild -p, and it wants to rebuild blackdown for the missing
library. Fine, but when I try emerge -p blackdown-jdk, I get:
[blocks B ] x11-libs/libXft (is blocking x11-base/xorg-x11-184.108.40.206-r4)
[ebuild UD] x11-base/xorg-x11-220.127.116.11-r4 [7.0]
[ebuild N ] virtual/x11-6.8
[ebuild U ] dev-java/blackdown-jdk-1.4.2.03-r2 [1.4.2.02]
Do not quite understand what is going to happen here. What is the virtual?
Is this just going to downgrade to xorg-x11-18.104.22.168-r4?
Same goes for imagemagick and gnome.
THX for any advice
