Description Nikita Zlobin 2018-02-21 09:10:38 UTC
I got case, where some app requires gtk+[wayland] just to compile (of course, it might get option to disable wayland someday).

But anyway, i now have to enable wayland for gtk+:3. But on attempt to rebuild with new use i get conflict:

Would not it better depend on 'wayland?' instead if 'wayland=' ?

I'm not sure of the fineprint there offhand. Things need to match up between clutter, clutter-gtk and clutter-gst or something; not sure if that's needed for gtk+. Gilles?
Comment 2 Nikita Zlobin 2018-02-21 10:06:35 UTC
Yep, i self doubt in this... just thought, that if something may be built without, then why not...

Is not reason for existing deps is that gtk, built with both x/wayland, might be launched in wayland session, and if it also need clutter/gst, it is going to be in trouble. If so, i'm unlikely insisting on fixing this bug :)
Comment 3 Timo Ollech 2024-04-08 10:02:29 UTC
I'm not sure if this is the right place to report, but I ran into a conflict converning media-libs/clutter-gtk with or without wayland. A recent change forced me to enable the wayland flag on a bunch of packages, but clutter-gtk wants -wayland via a dependency by app-pda/gtkpod.
Should I file a bug on gtkpod or is my comment here in the right place?
Comment 4 Mart Raudsepp gentoo-dev 2024-04-13 10:03:24 UTC
gtkpod doesn't require wayland USE flag to be one way or another. Just the flag needs to match on a bunch of related packages. gtkpod however should see about achieving whatever that one plugin using clutter-gtk does some other way though, as separate clutter packages are pretty much dead and unmaintained upstream.
