emerge - u world (error)
I'm getting an error when trying to run any varation of emerge world. I got the following message:
!!! Error: the <=x11-themes/gnome-themes-2.8.2 package conflicts with another package.
!!! both can't be installed on the same system together.
!!! Please use 'emerge --pretend' to determine blockers.
So then I run this to unmerge the block:
emerge -C x11-themes/gnome-themes-2.8.2
and it doesn't work and I get this:
--- Couldn't find x11-themes/gnome-themes-2.8.2 to unmerge.
>>> unmerge: No packages selected for removal.
Am I doing something wrong?
Yes, it does not mean that it conflicts with itself, it means with another package, give us the full output
emerge -pu world
These are the packages that I would merge, in order:
Calculating world dependencies ...done!
[blocks B ] <=x11-themes/gnome-themes-2.8.2 (is blocking x11-themes/gtk-engines-2.6.7)
That is the only block I get.
I think I fixed it, I did this:
emerge -C gnome-themes app-admin
then ran emerge -up world and it had no blocks.
