Hello there!!
I want to install gqmpeg without gnome-libs, but I can't seem to get it right..
In /etc/make.conf I set USE="-gnome -gnome-libs" but when I say
emerge --pretend gqmpeg
then emerge wants to install gnome-libs too.. what am I doing wrong??

I hate to mention the obvious, but have you verified that USE was as you expect before you emerge ('set|grep USE')?

Also, the USE documentation (http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/use-howto.xml) says you only need '-gnome'. Not that adding gnome-libs would do any harm.

Just a guess, but gqmpeg was built using the Gnome libraries. If that is true,
you may not be able to install it without the libraries.

If gnome is a required dependent of the package, it will be installed no matter you put in your USE statement. Check the portage documentation for more details.

cheers,

OK, just to explain so you understand the difference. Lets say I write a clock program.
I may choose to add Gnome support in my program, but not build it with Gnome libraries.
If you have -gnome in your USE variable, then gnome support would not be included if
you emerged my clock program.
