Description C. Wijtmans 2013-11-05 20:18:49 UTC
-(opengl ? media-libs/mesa[egl])
+(egl ? media-libs/mesa[egl])
Comment 1 Matt Turner gentoo-dev 2013-11-09 05:18:16 UTC
Why is this the right thing to do?
Comment 2 C. Wijtmans 2013-11-09 13:14:04 UTC
because it depends on a EGL library not opengl. whether EGL uses opengl or not is besides the point. I have opengl as a global flag and my system does not use mesa(or egl). Besides that there will be nvidia EGL libraries out soon so it should depend on a virtual/egl package not mesa[egl] but lets wait to see if nvidia will fully support egl first(its only 32bit as of now).

It depends on both. I think you're somewhat confused.

Take a look at cairo's

not confused.  Thanks for confirming.
