I am trying to install conky with the bmpx use flat and noticed that it was masked via /usr/portage/profiles/base/use.mask. It references bug #162045, but there is not word on that being resolved. I run beep-media-player without any crashes etc.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. emerge -pv conky
2. [ebuild R ] app-admin/conky-1.4.5 USE="X ipv6* truetype -audacious (-bmpx) -hddtemp -mpd -vim-syntax" 0 k
3. no bmpx support
[ebuild R ] app-admin/conky-1.4.5 USE="X ipv6* truetype -audacious -bmpx -hddtemp -mpd -vim-syntax" 0 k
Edit: bug reference should be bug #162405
beep-media-player is no longer in the tree; dunno what you are running but we can't depend on non-existant stuff.
emerge -pv bmpx

or do you mean stable tree?
Eh; media-sound/beep-media-player != media-sound/bmpx; plus bmpx is still broken as you can see in bug #162405.
Guess I read the description wrong? I thought beep-media-player and bmpx were one in the same.

Ok I will wait for the previous bug to get fixed then.

That plus needs to get stabilized first; stable ebuilds cannot depend on unstable ones.
