Hi everytime I try to compile I get the message message I need X in my use flags, but it IS there! This is very frustrating any help would be much appreciated.

Hello,
You need to be more provide more information, like exact errors, emerge --info, logs, etc... It's had to determine the root of problems with vague information.


Thanks,
weisso

Since all USE flags are optional (yes, even the X USE flag), you are probably getting an error message that is somewhat different than the one you posted.

USE flags do enable optional features, but some packages depend on others having certain features. The messages is most likely telling you that the package you're trying to install (foo) needs another package (bar) with the X USE flag enabled.

USE flag changes are not applied until a package is compiled, so to fix the problem you now need to "emerge -1vat bar"

Side note: -1 tells portage not to add the package to the list of installed packages, which is safe in this case because foo depends on bar

I did this "emerge -1vat bar" and I still get this:

Code:

 * Please re-emerge x11-libs/cairo with the X USE flag set
 *
 * ERROR: x11-libs/gtk+-2.12.8 failed.
 * Call stack:
 *               ebuild.sh, line   49:  Called pkg_setup
 *      gtk+-2.12.8.ebuild, line   55:  Called die
 * The specific snippet of code:
 *         die "cairo needs the X flag set"
 *  The die message:
 *   cairo needs the X flag set
 *
 * If you need support, post the topmost build error, and the call stack if relevant.
 * A complete build log is located at '/var/tmp/portage/x11-libs/gtk+-2.12.8/temp/build.log'.
 * The ebuild environment file is located at '/var/tmp/portage/x11-libs/gtk+-2.12.8/temp/die.env'.

You also may need to rebuild some other packages with the X USE flag. I'd do a,
Code:
emerge -auvDN world

The -N flag is the important one here.

Tip of the day: Don't skim-read posts - you may miss something important.

What do you know, there's a package called bar in portage:
* sys-apps/bar
Available versions: *1.10.2 1.10.3
Homepage: http://clpbar.sourceforge.net/
Description: Console Progress Bar

You can unmerge that if you want (foo, bar, etc are often used as example names)
