    I wanted to emerge -uD world but when I did a prtend...I got all this blocking from x11. Normally I would guess to unmerge x11 but I know that its an important part. Any ideas? This is my terminal output:

    $ emerge -p -uD world

    These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

    Calculating world dependencies... done!

    I am not usre if this would be the same in Gentoo, but in Arch I had a lot of problems upgrading to xorg7 from 6.9. I broke a lot of stuff.
    But on a fresh install of Arch it worked great.

    You could unmerge xorg or mask xorg7, and that should straighten it out.
    Xorg7 has its config files in different places than previous versions.

    There you go. Instructions to migrate to the modular I just read where they marked 7.0 stable.
