Description Martin Holzer (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-09-26 02:02:20 UTC
the idea is to have a x-less server. i've tried it but the thirst thing i've 
emerge it was terrible.
emerge samba with the USE flag "-X" emerges xfree cause of ghostscript.

if a USE flag is set, every package has to check the USE flag.
maybe emerge should put a little info if it's unable to emerge the package 
cause of the USE flag.

should be something like: take the use flags 
from /etc/make.profile/make.defaults, then the from /etc/make.conf.

then check out every dependency from emerged package.

if that works it would be great

if you're saying 'enforce' USE variables hardcore, then there is a bug open for 
that ...

but seriously, if you want a slim server than you should go through and disable 
all the graphical stuff in your USE variable anyways ...
USE="-X -qt -svga -aalib -kde -gnome" etc...
