after recent sys-apps/portage upgrade to 2.1.10.3, during cleaning dependencies portage wants to remove app-editors/nano:
Code:
emerge --depclean --pretend

...

Calculating dependencies... done!
>>> Calculating removal order...
>>> These are the packages that would be unmerged:

!!! 'app-editors/nano' (virtual/editor) is part of your system profile.
!!! Unmerging it may be damaging to your system.

 app-editors/nano
    selected: 2.2.5
   protected: none
     omitted: none

All selected packages: app-editors/nano-2.2.5

>>> 'Selected' packages are slated for removal.
>>> 'Protected' and 'omitted' packages will not be removed.


this happened on my desktop installation. an upgrade on notebook having system almost similar to desktop (same profile, a subset of desktop packages, whatever) behaves normally. just observed that message in the forum seems to have the close problem source: virtual/editors ebuild contains "logical or" dependences: RDEPEND="|| ( app-editors/nano ....

what to do then? any ideas? (for sure i do know `emerge --noreplace' option :))

do you have another editor installed?
I think I ran into the same issue, but wasn't worried as I have vim installed, I prefer it over nano.

on both desktop and notebook i do have emacs installation. i also do not worry about the case of nano existence in my system..

however the question was why these two similar systems behave differently. actually this is my guess about similarity, at least i'm continuously trying to have these similar - for equal environment at home and out of home work

Could you compare your world files?
I might be that, nano is included in your notebook config, and not in your desktop's.

it does not, at least this comparison returns no result:
Code:
$ ssh notebook 'cat /var/lib/portage/world' | diff -u - /var/lib/portage/world |grep nano

I've also had this come up today and it also wants to delete "less".

Moved from Portage & Programming to Duplicate Threads in favor of --depclean wants to remove nano! (encountered by yours truly).
