I trying to upgrade to modular X, and during the install of xkeyboard-config I got the following error message:

Code:

 * Directory /usr/lib/X11/xkb should be
 * manually deleted/renamed/relocated before installing!

!!! ERROR: x11-misc/xkeyboard-config-0.8 failed.
Call stack:
  ebuild.sh, line 1555:   Called dyn_setup
  ebuild.sh, line 668:   Called pkg_setup
  xkeyboard-config-0.8.ebuild, line 24:   Called die

!!! Manually remove /usr/lib/X11/xkb
!!! If you need support, post the topmost build error, and the call stack if relevant.


The instructions were easy enough to follow. My question (?) is whether this should be listed in the steps in the Migrating to Modular X docs (it lists removing /usr/X11 if it is not a symlink to /usr, which it wasn't in my case). If not, is it some sort of bug? Should it just delete /usr/lib/X11/xkb on its own (i.e. not require me to do it manually)? For the sake of completeness, I'm running a sparc ultra5 with the following emerge --info:

Probly should, you can always post a bug about this at bugs.gentoo.org - Oh and remember: the only silly questions is the question not asked.

I had the same "error" and just did what it wanted and X modular emerged without problems after that.
