Description Kent Fredric (IRC: kent\n) (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2013-11-12 23:26:47 UTC
Created attachment 363158 [details]
emerge --info

I've been seeing this description as a dependency a lot these days:

The following keyword changes are necessary to proceed:
 (see "package.accept_keywords" in the portage(5) man page for more details)
# required by @__auto_slot_operator_replace_installed__ (argument)
=dev-libs/protobuf-2.5.0 ~amd64

Other examples in my autounmask file

#required by @__auto_slot_operator_replace_installed__ (argument)
=dev-lang/v8- ~amd64

# required by net-libs/webkit-gtk-1.8.3-r201
# required by @__auto_slot_operator_replace_installed__ (argument)
=media-libs/libpng-1.6.6 ~amd64

# required by @__auto_slot_operator_replace_installed__ (argument)
=media-libs/clutter-1.14.4-r1 ~amd64

These are just very confusing dependency descriptions.

Usually, when I see an ~amd64 dep creep in, I go check the dep to see if I can do something to eliminate it, but the autounmask descriptions don't give me the context on what is triggering the dependency, other than I know "some slot somewhere is doing it" 

I know it says "argument", but I'm not specifying that argument at all.

> emerge -uvatDN @world

Is all I'm doing.
