Description Stefano 2004-12-19 06:17:30 UTC
Emerge tries to merge alsa-driver while updating alsa-lib, which is not correct since I use gentoo-dev-sources which already satisfies virtual/alsa.

I've already tried manually forcing in /etc/portage/profile/virtual the proper association, but still emerge seems to ignore it :(

Reproducible: Always

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

Local config bug
Comment 3 Stefano 2005-01-10 00:59:55 UTC
Someone correctly observed I didn't post a resolution hint for others, so here it is. I had an older version of alsa-driver leftover, check with:
grep -r "virtual/alsa" /var/db/pkg

If you see that alsa-driver is listed there, then you can purge it out with:
emerge -C alsa-driver

And verify it's been cleaned out with:
grep -r "virtual/alsa" /var/db/pkg

After that emerge should work fine :)
