Hello,

I am trying to update gentoo below like so

zfect wine # emerge --update --deep --with-bdeps=y --newuse world

Code:
 * IMPORTANT: 7 news items need reading for repository 'gentoo'.
 * Use eselect news to read news items.

 * Last emerge --sync was 49d 12h 27m 46s ago.

 * IMPORTANT: 2 config files in '/etc/portage' need updating.
 * See the CONFIGURATION FILES section of the emerge
 * man page to learn how to update config files.
Calculating dependencies... done!

!!! Multiple package instances within a single package slot have been pulled
!!! into the dependency graph, resulting in a slot conflict:

sys-fs/udev:0

  (sys-fs/udev-188::gentoo, ebuild scheduled for merge) pulled in by
    >=sys-fs/udev-187 required by (sys-fs/udev-init-scripts-16::gentoo, ebuild scheduled for merge)

  (sys-fs/udev-171-r6::gentoo, installed) pulled in by
    <sys-fs/udev-185 required by (net-wireless/bluez-4.99::gentoo, installed)


It may be possible to solve this problem by using package.mask to
prevent one of those packages from being selected. However, it is also
possible that conflicting dependencies exist such that they are
impossible to satisfy simultaneously.  If such a conflict exists in
the dependencies of two different packages, then those packages can
not be installed simultaneously.

For more information, see MASKED PACKAGES section in the emerge man
page or refer to the Gentoo Handbook.


I've been looking through masking related information, to try and understand what is going on here, but I can't seem to put it together. Do I have to mask a certain package, and if so, I don't know which one.

I appreciate any help,
Thanks

try

Code:
emerge -C sys-apps/module-init-tools


then

Code:

emerge -av =sys-fs/udev-188 =sys-fs/udev-init-scripts-16


Edit: It looks like genkernel is the problem.

Unmask a newer genkernel first.

Hi drescherjm, thanks for the reply.

It appears the reason I was getting the issue stemmed actually from not first syncing portage (had not done it for 39 days). Its working now :)
