I just updated udev to 114-r1 yesterday (from 111-r3).

I --sync'd today, and I get the following;
Code:
# emerge -p udev         

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

Calculating dependencies... done!
[ebuild   R   ] sys-fs/udev-114-r1  USE="(-selinux)" 0 kB
[blocks B     ] <sys-fs/device-mapper-1.02.19-r1 (is blocking sys-fs/udev-114-r1)

# emerge -p device-mapper

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

Calculating dependencies... done!
[ebuild   R   ] sys-fs/device-mapper-1.02.19  USE="(-selinux)" 0 kB
[blocks B     ] <sys-fs/device-mapper-1.02.19-r1 (is blocking sys-fs/udev-114-r1)

# emerge -p =udev-114

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

Calculating dependencies... done!
[ebuild     UD] sys-fs/udev-114 [114-r1] USE="(-selinux)" 0 kB
[blocks B     ] <sys-fs/device-mapper-1.02.19-r1 (is blocking sys-fs/udev-114, sys-fs/udev-114-r1)

It's only device-mapper-1.02.19-r1 which is supposed to be blocked, which I've never had installed, so I don't understand this.
I added =sys-fs/device-mapper-1.02.19-r1 to /etc/portage/package.mask.

I have a feeling it will sort itself out if I unmerge and then emerge -1 udev, but I'd like to understand what the problem is.

Is this what happens when changes are made to ebuilds without a revision bump?

I'd guess this is related to changing ebuild without version bumping, yes. From the looks of it they've changed the udev ebuild to require a newer version of device-mapper than you have installed. Ss the output you pasted from after you added the mask for device-mapper? Otherwise I would've thought it would allow the upgrade. Anyway, I'd recommend removing this mask and upgrading device-mapper (if this fails then you may need to uninstall device-mapper & then install the new version).

That's just the thing, it was like this before the mask.

I masked it in an effort to resolve the issue.

Odd that it's not trying to install the new version of device-mapper - you could try doing "emerge =sys-fs/device-mapper-1.02.19-r1" to force this.

Gah - guess you'll have to uninstall device-mapper first, then install the new version :(

I have the same problem. Does anybody think that upgrading the device mapper will mess up my LVM2 installation?

No it is every version < device-mapper-1.02.19-r1 that is blocking. Remove your pointless local mask, unmerge device-mapper, then emerge udev and device-mapper. And please read the documentation of Portage, so you're aware of what the operators in front of an ebuild atom mean.

Actually, I understand the meaning operators of the operators just fine, I just misread it (never even noticed the bloody '<').

:oops:

But still,
Code:
# emerge -p device-mapper

You didn't unmerge "device-mapper".

I shouldn't have to.

Anyway, I couldn't find a polish -> english translator, what "perduodu linkėjimus" mean?

Sometimes it is necessary, e. g. to prevent files collision with other packages. In this case newer "udev" can't work with older "device-mapper", so "<device-mapper-1.02.19-r1" is blocked.

So for anyone who still comes across this problem, this is exactly what I did to solve it on my machine

Code:
emerge =sys-fs/device-mapper-1.02.19-r1
emerge -u sys-fs/udev
emerge -u sys-fs/device-mapper

I had this conflict when emerging Gnome on a new system. What worked for me was to first emerge udev, then emerge Gnome. After reading this thread, and before emerging Gnome, I checked and saw that I could then emerge device-mapper alone, without conflict, if I wanted to.
