Description Stephen Lewis 2010-03-17 16:50:55 UTC
I cannot emerge dev-python/sphinx because it depends on dev-python/jinja2 which
depends on dev-python/sphinx...

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.emerge dev-python/sphinx

Actual Results:  
emerge -p dev-python/sphinx

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Calculating dependencies... done!

[nomerge      ] dev-python/sphinx-0.6.3  USE="doc -test" 
[ebuild  N    ]  dev-python/jinja2-2.2.1  USE="doc -examples -i18n -test" 
[ebuild  N    ]   dev-python/sphinx-0.6.3  USE="doc -test" 

 * Error: circular dependencies:

('ebuild', '/', 'dev-python/jinja2-2.2.1', 'merge') depends on
  ('ebuild', '/', 'dev-python/sphinx-0.6.3', 'merge') (buildtime)
('ebuild', '/', 'dev-python/sphinx-0.6.3', 'merge') depends on
  ('ebuild', '/', 'dev-python/jinja2-2.2.1', 'merge') (buildtime)

 * Note that circular dependencies can often be avoided by temporarily
 * disabling USE flags that trigger optional dependencies.

Expected Results:  
emerge to build, install dev-python/sphinx

is there a workaround? I am unsure how to fix this...

Turn off doc useflag

> Turn off doc useflag

Thank you. The following worked:

USE="-doc" emerge dev-python/jinja2
USE="doc" emerge dev-python/sphinx
USE="doc" emerge dev-python/jinja2

Now have both and documentation installed, I'm a bit new at this...
