    Question Updating Gentoo Linux box is failing due to dependency


    What do I need to change to fix this problem?

    $ sudo emerge --update --deep --newuse world
    Calculating dependencies... done!

    emerge: there are no ebuilds built with USE flags to satisfy "dev-lang/python[xml]".
    !!! One of the following packages is required to complete your request:
    - dev-lang/python-2.5.4-r3 (Change USE: +xml)
    (dependency required by "app-portage/gentoolkit-0.2.4.5" [ebuild])
    (dependency required by "world" [argument])

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello and Welcome.
    I believe that you can add xml to your use flags in /etc/make.conf and proceed from there.
    Good Luck.

    That's for the quick reply. Should I add it here:

    USE="x86 apache2 mysql bzip2 perl -postgres readline -snmp tcpd userlocales nptl nptlonly \
    -acl -alsa -apm -arts -avi -berkdb -cups -eds -emboss -encode -esd \
    -foomaticdb -gdbm -gif -gnome -gpm -gstreamer -gtk -gtk2 -imlib -ipv6
    -jpeg -kde -libg++ -libwww -mad -mikmod -motif -mp3 -mpeg -ogg -opengl \
    -oss -pam -pdflib -png -python -qt -qt3 -qt4 -quicktime -sdl -spell \
    -truetype -vorbis -X -xml -xmms -xv -zlib"

    Yes that would be the place. Or you could just remove the -xml that's already there.
    Anything with a - in front of it will not get pulled in, if you want to use xml just remove the - and you should be good to go.
