Description jon brookes 2007-04-30 16:57:05 UTC
>=x11-proto/xproto-7.0.6 package conflicts with x11-proto/xproto-7.0.7, neither of which are installed

which seems to point to a package, not installed:

emerge --unmerge x11-proto/xproto

--- Couldn't find 'x11-proto/xproto' to unmerge.

>>> No packages selected for removal by unmerge

blocking a later version of the same package, which itself is not installed:

emerge x11-proto/xproto --pretend

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

Calculating dependencies... done!
[ebuild  N    ] x11-proto/xproto-7.0.7  USE="-debug"
[blocks B     ] >=x11-proto/xproto-7.0.6 (is blocking x11-libs/libX11-1.0.1-r1)

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.emerge sync
2.emerge --deep world

this is a new build, using 'live-cd' to install

X starts up together with Gnome but some features fail, namely, gnome-xterm seg faults - it is an old version in need of update

there are many updates pending, I will likely be able to do all updates prior to the above package but will fail at this point

 emerge --sync
 emerge -1v libX11

You misdiagnosed problem.

It conflicts with you old libX11.

It's not xproto blocking.
Comment 3 jon brookes 2007-05-01 06:16:16 UTC
did an 

emerge --unmerge libX11

block was *removed* :):):)

excellent - many thanks for guidance, will try to better diagnose next time

also, thanks for rapid update - I was astonished at speed of response
