Description Vincent-Xavier JUMEL 2012-08-05 13:10:04 UTC
When emerging app-text/texlive-2012::gentoo, I get :

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


  (app-text/texlive-2012::gentoo, ebuild scheduled for merge) pulled in by
    (no parents that aren't satisfied by other packages in this slot)

  (app-text/texlive-2011-r1::gentoo, installed) pulled in by
    ~app-text/texlive-2011 required by (app-portage/g-ctan-2011.1::gentoo, installed)

Step to reproduce :
1. get a texlive-2011 installation
2. Install app-portage/g-ctan-2011.1::gentoo
3. Upgrade to texlive-2012

What happen :
Install is blocked

Excepted result : 
app-text/texlive-2012::gentoo installation

I doubt that I will find the time to update it...

How much more work than updating some versions and URLs could it be?
Has something seriously changed in the texlive package system?

I would try to give it a shot else
