Description Zentoo 2022-08-10 15:34:48 UTC
net-misc/turbovnc provides:
- vncserver
- if USE=java vncviewer

net-misc/tigervnc provides:
- if USE=server vncserver
- vncviewer

So it should be possible to use net-misc/turbovnc[-java] vncserver with net-misc/tigervnc[-server] vncviewer but net-misc/turbovnc ebuild refuses to emerge if net-misc/tigervnc is installed.

So turbovnc should refuse to install along tigervnc only if:
- using java USE flag
- tigervnc is installed with server USE flag

And tigervnc sould refuses to install along turbovnc if:
- using server USE flag
- turbovnc is installed with java USE flag

Thanks I confirm that it's possible now to use
- vncserver from turbovnc
- vncviewer from tigervnc

Note: description of "java" USE flag for net-misc/turbovnc actually is "Add support for Java".
It can be more explicit and tell that java USE flag bring vncviewer.
Someting like: "Add support for Java. Build vncviewer"
