Description Andy Dustman 2004-02-28 15:04:20 UTC
If USE=qt, then a dependency on >=x11-libs/qt-2.3.0 is added, which ultimately
causes xfree to be merged, even if USE=-X. qt support should be made conditional
on USE=X. Since the patch is trivial, it is pasted below.

Comment 1 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2004-02-28 20:01:22 UTC
there are other packages that have similar dependencies

if you dont want X, then put -qt and -gtk into your USE
Comment 2 Andy Dustman 2004-02-29 10:36:14 UTC
That doesn't make it any less of a bug. It's annoying to have to have -qt -gnome -kde -gtk when I already have -X.
Comment 3 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2004-02-29 14:24:34 UTC
the default profile has USE="X sdl gtk kde qt gnome" among other things

if you dont like the defaults, override them in your make.conf or make your own profile
Comment 4 Andy Dustman 2004-03-04 19:02:14 UTC
If I say I don't want X support, I shouldn't get X just because gnome or qt happen to be set in the default. -X should trump +gnome +qt etc.

See also bug #43229; at least one Gentoo developer agrees with me.
Comment 5 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2004-03-04 20:50:44 UTC
this is Bug 43229

as for -X overriding gtk/qt, that's been discussed before and possible side solutions have been proposed, but as it stands now, it's not going to happen

crawl the mail archives for gentoo-dev to see about use classes and such
Comment 6 Andy Dustman 2004-03-10 14:25:17 UTC
Sorry, meant bug #43228.
Comment 7 Robin Johnson archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2004-03-10 23:42:36 UTC
andy: as an odd example of why your logic there is wrong:
say I have X and qt installed on a machine, and then want to build my PHP _with_ it's qt stuff, but WITHOUT it's X stuff.
the existing logic allows this, your logic does not.
Comment 8 Andy Dustman 2004-03-12 05:14:29 UTC
But you can't build or use qt without X. libqt links against a ton of X libraries, not the least of which is libX11. It makes no sense to say you want qt without X.
