Description Alexandre Rostovtsev (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2011-04-07 03:47:51 UTC
With USE=doc, gnome-desktop-3.0.0 and 2.32.1 collide due to trying to install their license documentation files in the same location.

USE="doc" emerge gnome-desktop:3
>>> Installing (6 of 13) gnome-base/gnome-desktop-3.0.0
 * checking 46 files for package collisions
 * This package will overwrite one or more files that may belong to other
 * packages (see list below). You can use a command such as `portageq
 * owners / <filename>` to identify the installed package that owns a
 * file. If portageq reports that only one package owns a file then do
 * NOT file a bug report. A bug report is only useful if it identifies at
 * least two or more packages that are known to install the same file(s).
 * If a collision occurs and you can not explain where the file came from
 * then you should simply ignore the collision since there is not enough
 * information to determine if a real problem exists. Please do NOT file
 * a bug report at unless you report exactly which
 * two packages install the same file(s). Once again, please do NOT file
 * a bug report unless you have completely understood the above message.

Created attachment 268813 [details, diff]
adds blocking dependency

It is ok. USE="-doc" resolves the conflict between vers 2 and 3 (since 2.32.1 and 3.0.0)

But there was no block in ebuild. Here is a simple patch to add blocking

This was fixed quite some time ago.
