Description Mark Keisler 2009-01-21 15:54:16 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #13286 +++

Since I did an "emerge rsync" today, most emerge operations, including "emerge
--pretend world", fail in the "calculating dependencies" step with "emerge:
there are no masked or unmasked ebuilds to satisfy "virtual/xft"."

It seems that the virtual/xft needs to point to x11-libs/libXft but is not.
Comment 1 Jeremy Olexa (darkside) (RETIRED) archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2009-01-21 16:50:45 UTC
virtual/xft was removed (bug 253771), there shouldn't be any packages depending on it anymore. So, if it is still in your world file then you should emerge -C virtual/xft. 

Assigning to maintainers to confirm.
Comment 2 Rémi Cardona gentoo-dev 2009-01-21 16:57:17 UTC
Either you have an overlay which still has ebuilds that dep on virtual/xft, or you need to prune entries from your world file.

Thanks
Comment 3 Mark Keisler 2009-01-21 18:22:17 UTC
aha
emerge: there are no ebuilds to satisfy "virtual/xft".
(dependency required by "net-libs/gecko-sdk-1.7.13" [installed])
(dependency required by "world" [argument])
Comment 4 seg.laco 2009-03-01 15:36:18 UTC
and a few more ebuilds need virtual/xft:

emerge: there are no ebuilds to satisfy "virtual/xft".
(dependency required by "x11-libs/fox-1.6.35" [ebuild])
(dependency required by "media-sound/rezound-0.12.3_beta-r2" [ebuild])
(dependency required by "world" [argument])
Comment 5 Rémi Cardona gentoo-dev 2009-03-01 20:52:35 UTC
$ qgrep virtual/xft
$

Portage is completely clean, are you using some overlay? If you are, please contact its maintainers to have their ebuilds updated.

Thanks
Comment 6 seg.laco 2009-03-01 21:56:18 UTC
I did another sync right now. And now emerge stopped complaining.
I'm using an overlay, but neither fox nor rezound is in it. I hope it is OK right now.
