For those of you having the Xemacs emerge solution, this thread helped me with this:

http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic.php?t=589

The gist of is that you can either put "-gpm" in your /etc/make.conf file to not compile in GPM support (and thusly make XEmacs stop bitching about gdbm errors) or you can emerge GPM and Xemacs will emerge fine.

Strange bug... I think the gentoo people overlooked this dependency.

thanks rsk

a more convinient way would just be export USE="-gpm" then emerge xemacs since you might need gpm in other packages in the futre or just try
use="-gpm" emerge xemacs....

not sure if my syntax on the 2nd one is correct
:wink:

oh sweet I hadn't actually ever thought of using the export directive to set the use variables... that's much more conenient when working out the squirrely installs.

thanks!
