Code:
!!! existing preserved libs:
>>> package: dev-libs/libusb-0.1.12-r5
 *  - /lib64/libusb.so
 *      used by /usr/bin/sane-find-scanner (media-gfx/sane-backends-1.0.19-r2)
 *      used by /usr/bin/scanimage (media-gfx/sane-backends-1.0.19-r2)

 *      used by 80 other files

 *      used by 21 other files
Use emerge @preserved-rebuild to rebuild packages using these libraries
is what I get, over and over, like some hellish David Lynch film. It's awful! Running 'emerge @preserved-rebuild' does not fix the problem. Is there any reason for this, or should I simply move on, and try to pretend that I'm not seeing this awful thing at the end of every emerge, mocking me?

If you have any suggestings for how to fix it, I'd be very grateful. I'll be hiding under the desk if you need me.

Thanks,

EE

Update!

There are now six preserved libraries, which pull in 106 packages to remerge, every time. On top of that, one of them is the latest version of compiz-backend-kconfig, which is apparently not compatible with the latest kde (again: this happened a few months back with the last version). But regardless: I get an annoying message at the end of every emerge, telling me to emerge these packages, but no emerge changes anything.

Can anybody offer some help on how to fix this? Should I just file a bug?

Thanks,

EE

When I recently had some preserved libs that did that it was due to the rebuilds failing.

What I suspect is your problem is that those packages are not being built with the required use flags to meet the correct elimination of those libs. I would add a -pv to the command to determine the list and Use flags then check their inter-dependencies for the correct USE flags are enabled.

I'm not sure what flag needs to be enabled for, say, a new libusb to be used by the sane-find-scanner binary. The usb flag is enabled.

So, how do I go about finding out what flags I need to enable? Some of these libs (there are now more, linked to 114 ebuilds) are very basic ones.

Here's what I get now:

Code:
!!! existing preserved libs:
>>> package: dev-libs/nspr-4.8
 *  - /usr/lib64/nspr/libnspr4.so.7
 *      used by /usr/lib64/nspr/libplc4.so.7 (dev-libs/nspr-4.8)
 *      used by /usr/lib64/openoffice/basis3.1/program/libxsec_xmlsec.so (app-office/openoffice-3.1.0)
 *  - /usr/lib64/nspr/libplc4.so.7
 *      used by /usr/lib64/openoffice/basis3.1/program/libxsec_xmlsec.so (app-office/openoffice-3.1.0)
>>> package: sys-libs/cracklib-2.8.13-r1
 *  - /lib64/libcrack.so
 *      used by /bin/passwd (sys-apps/shadow-4.1.4.1)
 *      used by /lib64/security/pam_cracklib.so (sys-libs/pam-1.1.0)
 *      used by /usr/lib64/python2.6/site-packages/_cracklibmodule.so (sys-libs/cracklib-2.8.13-r1)
 *      used by 3 other files
>>> package: dev-libs/libusb-0.1.12-r5
 *  - /lib64/libusb.so
 *      used by /usr/bin/sane-find-scanner (media-gfx/sane-backends-1.0.20)
 *      used by /usr/bin/scanimage (media-gfx/sane-backends-1.0.20)
 *      used by /usr/bin/xsane (media-gfx/xsane-0.996)
 *      used by 43 other files
>>> package: dev-libs/libpcre-7.9-r1
 *  - /lib64/libpcre.so
 *      used by /bin/egrep (sys-apps/grep-2.5.4-r1)
 *      used by /bin/fgrep (sys-apps/grep-2.5.4-r1)
 *      used by /bin/grep (sys-apps/grep-2.5.4-r1)
 *      used by 29 other files
>>> package: sys-libs/e2fsprogs-libs-1.41.7
 *  - /lib64/libuuid.so
 *      used by /bin/uuidgen (sys-fs/e2fsprogs-1.41.6)
 *      used by /lib64/libblkid.so (sys-libs/e2fsprogs-libs-1.41.7)
 *      used by /lib64/libblkid.so.1.0 (sys-libs/e2fsprogs-libs-1.41.7)
 *      used by 832 other files
 *  - /lib64/libblkid.so
 *      used by /bin/mount (sys-apps/util-linux-2.15.1)
 *      used by /bin/umount (sys-apps/util-linux-2.15.1)
 *      used by /sbin/debugfs (sys-fs/e2fsprogs-1.41.6)
 *      used by 7 other files
 *  - /lib64/libss.so
 *      used by /sbin/debugfs (sys-fs/e2fsprogs-1.41.6)
 *  - /lib64/libcom_err.so
 *      used by /bin/chattr (sys-fs/e2fsprogs-1.41.6)
 *      used by /bin/lsattr (sys-fs/e2fsprogs-1.41.6)
 *      used by /lib64/libext2fs.so.2.4 (sys-fs/e2fsprogs-1.41.6)
 *      used by 12 other files
As you can see, some of the libs are basic libs, that don't take a much USE-flag voodoo to enable. So I'm not really sure how to clear them. Can you offer some advice?

Thanks for the help,

EE

Check that. This is a bug, which you can read about here.

Code:
emerge -C dev-libs/libusb && emerge dev-libs/libusb

fixed it for me.

Thanks, rasmussen.

It fixed it for me too. Now I get no output from
Code:
portageq list_preserved_libs /
