How/why is an older version blocking the newer versions? Any thoughts?


# emerge talloc -pv

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Calculating dependencies... done!
[ebuild U ] sys-libs/talloc-2.0.7 [2.0.1-r2] USE="-compat -python% (-doc%) (-static-libs%) (-swig%)" 363 kB
[blocks B ] <sys-libs/talloc-2.0.5 ("<sys-libs/talloc-2.0.5" is blocking sys-libs/talloc-2.0.7)

Total: 1 package (1 upgrade), Size of downloads: 363 kB
Conflict: 1 block (1 unsatisfied)

* Error: The above package list contains packages which cannot be
* installed at the same time on the same system.

(sys-libs/talloc-2.0.7::gentoo, ebuild scheduled for merge) pulled in by
sys-libs/talloc required by (net-fs/samba-3.5.11::gentoo, installed)
talloc


For more information about Blocked Packages, please refer to the following

Don't know why, but I just unmerged the old one. It's not a critical package.

This construct often appears as a workaround when the upstream build system improperly links the code it is building to the old versions of its libraries already installed on the system. Remove the old version, then install the new one.

I ran into this too, today. I did what Hu says:
Code:
emerge -C talloc && emerge -1 talloc
