    error installing gnome


    when running "emerge gnome" i get the error:
    !!! ERROR x11-libs/gtk+-2.10.6 failed
    Call stack:
    ebuild.sh, line 1562: Called dyn_setup
    ebuild.sh, line 665: Called pkg_setup
    gtk+-2.10.6.ebuild, line 52: Called die

    !!! cairo needs the X flag set
    !!! If you need support, post the topmost build error, and the call stack if relevant
    also whenever an emerge completes sucessfully it always outputs
    * IMPORTANT: 3 config files in /etc need updating.
    * Type emerge --help config to learn how to update config files
    typing "emerge --help config" dosn't help at all i don't have a clue which files need updating or why they need updating.

    The error message says it all. You need to emerge cairo with the X use flag. Do
    Code:
    #echo "x11-libs/cairo X" >> /etc/portage/package.use
    #emerge cairo gtk+
    As for the message about the config files, you have to run etc-update whenever you see the message. Gentoo does not want to overwrite your configuration files without asking you, so it wants to know what you want to do with any new config files.

    Don't forget about dispatch-conf
