Total: 22 packages (20 upgrades, 1 downgrade, 1 reinstall), Size of downloads: 15,637 kB

!!! Multiple package instances within a single package slot have been pulled
!!! into the dependency graph, resulting in a slot conflict:


  ('installed', '/', 'media-video/transcode-1.1.1-r3', 'nomerge') pulled in by
    media-video/transcode required by ('installed', '/', 'app-cdr/k3b-1.0.5-r3', 'nomerge')

  ('ebuild', '/', 'media-video/transcode-1.0.7', 'merge') pulled in by
    media-video/transcode[dvdread,jpeg,mp3,mpeg,ogg,vorbis] required by ('ebuild', '/', 'media-video/dvdrip-0.98.10-r1', 'merge')
    (and 1 more)


    New USE are correctly set, but --newuse wasn't requested, so an
    installed package with incorrect USE happened to get pulled into the
    dependency graph. In order to solve this, either specify the --newuse
    option or explicitly  reinstall 'media-video/transcode:0'.

1) As can be seen, --newuse is requested 
2) After emerging media-video/transcode:0, the same messages are displayed

emerge --info

Comment 1 Lars Wendler (Polynomial-C) (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-03-10 19:08:14 UTC
So is your concern really portage being quite unhelpful or do you rather want to have bug #261889 fixed? (which already happened)

That portage was unhelpful. Previous versions just announced that different versions cannot be installed in the same slot. Neither of the two possible actions suggested by portage 'fixed' the problem. From past experience with this type of blockage, I did not expect either of portage's suggestions to work. I always use --newuse, and I think that every time I have seen 'multiple version' blockages that the eventual solution (as in this case) has been a change to one (or more) of the ebuilds which wants to pull in the 'downgrade'.
Comment 3 Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2009-03-11 22:30:19 UTC
This is fixed in svn r13059.
Comment 4 Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2009-03-12 10:10:00 UTC
This is fixed in 2.2_rc25 which is in package.mask. I'll close this bug when
it's also released in
Comment 5 Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2009-03-13 20:49:17 UTC
