, and running emerge -uND world was recommended before emerge --depclean.
- you need to install additional packages, to fill the dependencies, this can be done package by package or with a global update as with emerge -auDvN world
- you need to uninstall the package(s) whose dependencies are not fulfilled, that way the dependencies go away as well
What's the right solution depends on what do you want to do. If you want to uninstall a given package and after that you run --depclean then you might get some errors telling you that a given package that's still installed depends on the package you just uninstalled. In that case most likely the solution is to emerge -C all of them, and not to merge back again what you already unmerged.
