>emerge -p xorg-x11
These are the packages that I would merge, in order:
Calculating dependencies ...done!
[blocks B     ] <x11-base/xorg-x11-6.8.0-r4 (is blocking x11-base/opengl-update-2.1.1-r1)
[ebuild     U ] media-libs/freetype-2.1.9-r1 [2.1.5-r1] 
[ebuild     U ] x11-base/opengl-update-2.1.1-r1 [2.0_pre4-r1] 
[ebuild     U ] x11-base/xorg-x11-6.8.2-r1 [4.3.0-r8] 
[ebuild  N    ] sys-apps/utempter-  
[ebuild  N    ] x11-terms/xterm-200  

opengl-update blocks x11-base/xorg-x11-6.8.0-r4, which is fine.

The bug here is that I am not installing x11-base/xorg-x11-6.8.0-r4, I am installing x11-base/xorg-x11-6.8.2-r1.  The 6.8.0-r4 ebuild isn't even in my portage.

Trying a different version of xorg works fine, as shown below.
>emerge -p =xorg-x11-6.8.0-r5
These are the packages that I would merge, in order:
Calculating dependencies ...done!
[ebuild     U ] x11-base/xorg-x11-6.8.0-r5 [4.3.0-r8] 
[ebuild  N    ] sys-apps/utempter-  
[ebuild  N    ] x11-terms/xterm-200  

To me this indicates a bug in portage.
I am running sys-apps/portage-

emerge -C =xorg-x11-4.3.0* -- as your emerge output shows in the square brackets, it's installed:

[ebuild     U ] x11-base/xorg-x11-6.8.2-r1 [4.3.0-r8] 

This is a result of the xfree to xorg-x11 move. Things should work fine once you uninstall it.
Comment 2 david 2005-03-25 17:28:51 UTC
x11-base/xorg-x11-6.8.0-r4 is the blocked package.
4.3.0-r8 is the installed version.

This also does not explain why other versions of xorg-x11 were not blocked.

I overrode the block with an 'emerge -O freetype opengl-update xorg-x11 utempter xterm' last night and it appears to have worked perfectly. 
Comment 3 Donnie Berkholz (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-03-25 22:48:22 UTC
Sure it does, if you understand the "less than" symbol.

[blocks B     ] <x11-base/xorg-x11-6.8.0-r4 (is blocking x11-base/opengl-update-2.1.1-r1)

If you have less than xorg-x11-6.8.0-r4, you can't upgrade opengl-update. If you can't upgrade opengl-update, you can't update xorg-x11.
