got this error need a lil help
QA notice : USE Flag "kernel_linux" not in IUSE for kde-base/kdenetworking-3.5.2
* =x11-libs/qt* compiled with OpenGL support
* Please re-emerge =x11-libs/qt* with USE="opengl"
I have a clue whit this means.
It's been a while since I used gentoo, but I'll try my best.
Gentoo relies on so-called "use flags" that you set on your system, and these need to be set properly in order to emerge things correctly. You should have a look in the gentoo handbook under "USE flags", and try to find out which file you need to edit to include "opengl" as a USE flag.
I'll have a quick look myself to see if I can find it -- but I don't promise anything!
Go to this link and look at "2.b Using USE-flags". I think you need to follow the instructions in "Code Listing 2", to include the file /etc/make.conf
But you should make sure to read the entire page, and make sure you understand things. It's important to double check my advice!!!
THeres the problem
I have read the handbook page on the Flag USE and dont understand it ., maybe its because ive been at this for 3 days i dont know. Remember im real new to linux so im having a time. if i could just get a desktop up and running on it i could copy and paste eror codes.
anyway thanks for the quick responce
No problem! :D
If you could enter the following command it might help me help you!
Tell me what the output of that command is, and we'll figure out what to do next.
there are all kinds of stuff in there.
in the USE here waht it says
USE="php5 apache5 cli"
Cool. Now you need to edit that to say USE="php5 apache5 cli opengl".
At the command line type "pico /etc/make.conf", and use the arrow-keys to get down to the line with USE=..., and edit it to include "opengl".
By the way, can you tell me what command you originally typed that resulted in the error?
i edited it with nano and still i cant emerge the rest of kde
Once you've editted and saved the new version of /etc/make.conf (type less /etc/make.conf again to make sure that the USE= line has changed), then try to emerge kde again.
EDIT: Sorry, you're too fast for me!!!
What was the error this time?
