Description Jaak Ristioja 2004-12-10 10:57:53 UTC
i just did an "emerge sync" some minutes ago, and the result:

root /usr/portage $ emerge -pv world

These are the packages that I would merge, in order:

Calculating world dependencies -
emerge: there are no ebuilds to satisfy "virtual/fam".

!!! Problem with ebuild kde-base/kdemultimedia-3.3.1
!!! Possibly a DEPEND/*DEPEND problem.

!!! Depgraph creation failed.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. su root
2. emerge sync
3. emerge -pv world
Actual Results:  
can't do "emerge -pv world" or similar.
