Subject: [gentoo-user] Xorg 7.0 + Blackdown-jdk
Date: Tue, 31 Jan 2006 03:57:26

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 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-
[ebuild     UD] x11-base/xorg-x11- [7.0]
[ebuild  N    ] virtual/x11-6.8
[ebuild     U ] dev-java/blackdown-jdk- []

Do not quite understand what is going to happen here. What is the virtual?
Is this just going to downgrade to xorg-x11-

Same goes for imagemagick and gnome.

THX for any advice
