Description Martin von Gagern 2005-03-16 09:32:21 UTC
opengl-update-2.1.1-r1 has RDEPEND "!<x11-base/xorg-x11-6.8.0-r4".
xorg-x11-6.8.0-r5 has DEPEND & RDEPEND "opengl? ( >=x11-base/opengl-update-1.99 )"
xorg-x11-6.8.2-r1 has DEPEND & RDEPEND "opengl? ( >=x11-base/opengl-update-2.1.1 )"
I have xorg-x11-6.8.0-r3 and opengl-update-1.8.2.
I wanted to update xorg-x11 to fix GLSA 200503-15 but could not.

perhaps a recent xorg-x11 should be a PDEPEND of opengl-update instead of those DEPEND restrictions. I don't know enough about PDEPENDs to be sure.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
# emerge --ask xorg-x11
# glsa-check -f new

Actual Results:  
Block reported

Expected Results:  
clean merge without dirty tricks.

# emerge --nodeps --ask --oneshot opengl-update
# emerge --ask --oneshot xorg-x11

This isn't a true circular dependency, otherwise there would be no possible way to install either.

What you need to do is uninstall xorg, upgrade opengl-update, install xorg.
