Hi,

When I try to upgrade my system, I get the following message:

Code:
WARNING: One or more updates have been skipped due to a dependency conflict:

dev-libs/glib:2

  (dev-libs/glib-2.34.3::gentoo, ebuild scheduled for merge) conflicts with
    <dev-libs/glib-2.33:2 required by (dev-libs/gobject-introspection-1.32.1::gentoo, installed)


Is there any way to resolve this conflict? Also, what does it mean for a package to end with "::gentoo"?

Thank you kindly.

That mean dev-libs/gobject-introspection-1.32.1 need <dev-libs/glib-2.33:2, which imply it will not work with dev-libs/glib-2.34.3, so this update (glib) is skipped. It's all into portage message :idea:

::gentoo mean it is into portage. ::someting would mean it is part of the "something" overlay. Overlays in gentoo are the equivalent of distant repositories on the other distributions, but they are much more robust in case of system update, because portage will take care of recompiling their packages in the same manner than with portage ebuilds.

portage discrepancies:
glib-2.33 does not exist in database
glib-2.33.12 does not exist in database
glib-2.34.3 hard masked and not keyworded
