I've been messing about with different use flags so I've run

Code:
# emerge --update --newuse --deep @world


a few times in the past couple of days. I have kde installed (kdebase-startkde) and I've unmerged nepomuk and it wants to pull it back in every time. I don't know how to blacklist packages and I can't find anything helpful with a simple google search, probably my search terms but there you go.
little help?

mrbassie,

Either nepomuk is in your world file, it shouldn't be if you have unmerged it, or something you have installed depends on it.

You can try
Code:
emerge -tuDNpv @world
to get an indented list of what depends on what, or
Code:
equery depends nepomuk
You need gentoolkit for the latter.

Thanks to each of you :). Those were exactly the pointers I needed.
