Description Marios Andreopoulos 2012-11-03 20:43:48 UTC
In icedtea-bin- ebuild, x11-libs/libXext is set in X_COMMON_DEP. It is though a generic dependency and isn't affected by the X use flag.

I have -X set in my use flags. I emerged icedtea-bin without problems. For some reason I had libXext installed.

An emerge --depclean decided to remove libXext as unneeded, but portage preserved its libraries as they are used by icedtea-bin.

Now, every time I run emerge, portage asks me to re-emerge icedtea-bin in order to remove preserved-libs.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
# emerge -1 icedtea-bin

 * ...                                                                                                                                                                   [ ok ]

Comment 1 Jonathan Callen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2012-11-04 09:23:18 UTC
Changed summary to show root of the issue. I would think that is only useful when X is available, so it might be best to simply not install it with USE=-X.
Comment 2 cyberbat 2013-11-01 09:01:36 UTC
Seems to be the same issue with icedtea version (not binary) both 7 and 6 versions.
Comment 3 James Le Cuirot gentoo-dev 2015-09-08 09:34:38 UTC
Now fixed though the X flag has changed to awt.
