The following block occurred when trying to emerge lxde-meta:

Code:
[blocks B      ] <sys-apps/sysvinit-2.88-r4 ("<sys-apps/sysvinit-2.88-r4" is blocking sys-apps/util-linux-2.22.2)

Is there a way of resolving this?

Notice the < sign which means "older than"?

So new util-linux can't be installed together with older sysvinit than 2.88-r4, so upgrade sysvinit first:

Code:

# emerge -1 sysvinit

OK, thx, still learning to interpret those package operators. However, I've now got a circular dependency:
Code:
bbx12 ~ # ek -1 sysvinit

[blocks B      ] <sys-apps/util-linux-2.22 ("<sys-apps/util-linux-2.22" is blocking sys-apps/sysvinit-2.88-r4)

bbx12 ~ # ek -1 util-linux

[blocks B      ] <sys-apps/sysvinit-2.88-r4 ("<sys-apps/sysvinit-2.88-r4" is blocking sys-apps/util-linux-2.22.2)

How do you tackle this?

Meh. You can just "emerge -C sysvinit", "emerge -1 util-linux", "emerge -1 sysvinit", long as you don't boot in between, do it all in a row.

Thanks for that. Still a bit leery of system level stuff - don't want to break the beast.

I just did this on a few systems this weekend. Shouldn't this have been a 'b' instead of a 'B", and shouldn't portage have just handled it? I thought that 'b' was for the case of, "There are packages that are blocked right now, but by the time the whole upgrade is done everything will be OK, again."

Also, I translate that into this:
Code:
># emerge -f sysvint util-linux
># emerge -C sysvinit
># emerge -1 util-linux sysvinit

as a practical interpretation.
