Description Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2009-05-16 18:47:47 UTC
Currently, I am getting this when running emerge -pvuDN world:
# emerge -pvuDN world

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

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


  ('installed', '/', 'sys-auth/pambase-20090430', 'nomerge') pulled in by
    >=sys-auth/pambase-20090430[gnome-keyring,consolekit] required by ('installed', '/', 'gnome-base/gdm-2.20.10-r1', 'nomerge')
    (and 5 more)

  ('ebuild', '/', 'sys-auth/pambase-20081028', 'merge') pulled in by
    sys-auth/pambase required by ('installed', '/', 'app-admin/sudo-1.7.0', 'nomerge')
    >=sys-auth/pambase-20080219.1 required by ('installed', '/', 'net-misc/netkit-rsh-0.17-r9', 'nomerge')
    >=sys-auth/pambase-20081028 required by ('installed', '/', 'net-misc/openssh-5.2_p1-r1', 'nomerge')
    (and 2 more)


    New USE for 'sys-auth/pambase:0' are incorrectly set. In order to
    solve this, adjust USE to satisfy '>=sys-auth/pambase-20090430[gnome-

This is because I installed in the past:
sys-auth/pambase-20090430 USE="consolekit cracklib gnome-keyring sha512 -debug -mktemp -passwdqc (-selinux) -ssh"

adding "=sys-auth/pambase-20090430" to my package.keywords. As it's no longer available and I don't have any other pambase version unmasked, emerge is unable to resolve dependencies because installed gnome-base/gdm-2.20.10-r1 requires >=sys-auth/pambase-20090430

The problem  is that emerge is interpreting that it's unable to resolve dependencies because I don't have proper USE flags set, when it's not true. Emerge is not able to resolve it because I would need to unmask new sys-auth/pambase-20090515
