Let's say I uncheck a feature of a package specific USE flags such as:

Code:
CALLIGRA_FEATURES


then emerge spits this out:

Code:
Invalid '-' operator in non-incremental variable 'CALLIGRA_FEATURES': '-plan'
Invalid '-' operator in non-incremental variable 'CALLIGRA_FEATURES': '-plan'
Invalid '-' operator in non-incremental variable 'CALLIGRA_FEATURES': '-plan'
Invalid '-' operator in non-incremental variable 'CALLIGRA_FEATURES': '-plan'                                                -Invalid '-' operator in non-incremental variable 'CALLIGRA_FEATURES': '-plan'
Invalid '-' operator in non-incremental variable 'CALLIGRA_FEATURES': '-plan'                                                \Invalid '-' operator in non-incremental variable 'CALLIGRA_FEATURES': '-plan'
Invalid '-' operator in non-incremental variable 'CALLIGRA_FEATURES': '-plan'
Invalid '-' operator in non-incremental variable 'CALLIGRA_FEATURES': '-plan'                                                -Invalid '-' operator in non-incremental variable 'CALLIGRA_FEATURES': '-plan'
Invalid '-' operator in non-incremental variable 'CALLIGRA_FEATURES': '-plan'                                                \Invalid '-' operator in non-incremental variable 'CALLIGRA_FEATURES': '-plan'
Invalid '-' operator in non-incremental variable 'CALLIGRA_FEATURES': '-plan'                                                |Invalid '-' operator in non-incremental variable 'CALLIGRA_FEATURES': '-plan'
Invalid '-' operator in non-incremental variable 'CALLIGRA_FEATURES': '-plan'
Invalid '-' operator in non-incremental variable 'CALLIGRA_FEATURES': '-plan'
Invalid '-' operator in non-incremental variable 'CALLIGRA_FEATURES': '-plan'
Invalid '-' operator in non-incremental variable 'CALLIGRA_FEATURES': '-plan'                                                |Invalid '-' operator in non-incremental variable 'CALLIGRA_FEATURES': '-plan'                                                /Invalid '-' operator in non-incremental variable 'CALLIGRA_FEATURES': '-plan'


rather not pretty.

That text message and info is not really useful and should be fixed to output a cleverer message about proper syntax usage of those USE flags.

I call it a bug.

_______0,

Code:
CALLIGRA_FEATURES
is not a use flag and it is not are variable you can add and subtract things from.
Unlike -X which is lehal in USE, -plan, or -anything cannot appear in CALLIGRA_FEATURES. You just list the features you want.

First. The output you posted comes from the package you are trying to compile, not from portage.
So, complain to the upstream package.

Second. For more helpful replies. Say what package and version you are having the trouble with.
