    another emerge problem


    if you read my other thread you know that i blocked out the new modular xorg-x11, so i don't really know what to do now
    localhost steven # emerge -uvaND world

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

    Calculating world dependencies... done!

    [blocks B ] <=x11-base/xorg-x11-6.9 (is blocking x11-proto/xcmiscproto-1.1.2)
    this is the basic jist of it, the whole messege is too long, and when i cut it down it says theres too many images, but theres none

    Start adding those to your package.mask file, and it won't pull them in. I think you will have to do it manually.

    When packages block other ones it means they can't be installed on the same system together. There is no way around this that I have found.

    Since Xorg 7.0 is marked as stable now, you will have to add most if not all of those to your package.mask file.

    Xorg 6.9 is the same thing as 7.0 (same code). 6.9 is just monolithic and 7.0 is modular.

    Looking back at your last post, it appears to be that you've still got Xorg-x11 6.9 installed. I don't know if you want to install both at the same time (which is not a good idea) or what.

    To fix the Deps issue, do this (if you want to install modular X over xorg-x11-6.9 and not parallel):
    Code:
    emerge -aC xorg-x11
    Hopefully, that should get rid of your problem. An rsync of portage wouldn't hurt either, just to make sure everything's uptodate in that respect

    He has tried that, and couldn't get Xorg 7 to work.

    I think you should quickpkg Xorg6.9, and then remove it. Then install Xorg 7 from scratch.
