hi all!

i'm installing gentoo for the first time, got a problem with installing kernel:

Code:

puppypc31420 portage # emerge gentoo-sources

For more information about Blocked Packages, please refer to the following
section of the Gentoo Linux x86 Handbook (architecture is irrelevant):

http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handbook/handbook-x86.xml?full=1#blocked


information provided in the url from above doesn't help a little.
do i understand correctly, that there is something wrong with USE variable?

thanks in advance!

to make question clearer:

1. how can i choose which one of conflicting packages to install?
2. how can i know, which one of those conflicting packages i should install, and which one is not that necessary?

packages.gentoo.org has openrc-11.8 listed as stable for all arch's
Code:
 equery depends openrc
here yields
Quote:
e
* These packages depend on openrc:
dev-db/mysql-init-scripts-2.0_pre1-r2 (sys-apps/openrc)
sys-apps/baselayout-2.1-r1 (sys-apps/openrc)
sys-fs/udev-init-scripts-23 (sys-apps/openrc)
suggest try
Code:
emerge openrc
and if needed
Code:
emerge --nodeps openrc
emerge openrc
read the news item concerning udev before upgrading udev

This sounds like you're installing from a rather old stage3. Do you know what the date on it is?

Your problem here really isn't gentoo-sources - it's that the system is out-of-date and is trying to update itself as you try to install gentoo-sources. Most of the time bringing a system up to date with portage is really easy - most of the time. You're seeing one of those times when it's a little tougher than normal - the recent udev upgrade. Since you're new to Gentoo I would suggest starting over with a more recent stage3 tarball, if you can. A more recent stage3 will be past this particular upgrade already, and let you focus on following the installation instructions. You may need to pick a different mirror to get a newer stage3 tarball.

If that can't/doesn't work for you...

First off, not all blocks are the same, notice that some are "b" and one is 'B'. Portage is able to figure out that some blocks are temporary and will be resolved once the full set of packages is installed, so it will blow past the 'b' and just work. If the block is a 'B' then portage can't figure its way past, and needs help. In your particular case, I suspect something about gentoo-sources has triggered the need for udev-197, which required kmod and udev-init-scripts, and removing module-init-tools. Portage could handle all of this, except that your openrc is too old for your udev.

Try "emerge -atv openrc udev" and see what happens. If it Blocks with a 'B' and refuses to continue, post back here. I suspect that it will change the openrc/udev 'B' to a 'b' and continue. Once that's done, you should be able to emerge gentoo-sources.

tarball date is 25 september 2012. i have chosen it thinking "older - more stable", i guess that wasn't the case. :)
i'll try starting over with newer tarball, i'll write a feedback here later.
thanks. :)

I made the change from udev-171 to udev-197 on Jan 26 of this year. You want something "comfortably newer" than that.

Really, when you're talking "stable Gentoo" there's usually no advantage to getting something older for stability's sake. There are occasional hiccups that may take as long as a week to get flushed out. But if you were to get an older release, you just might get one in the midst of such a hiccup.

When I install a new system, which I haven't done in over a year, but may do again in the next month or two, I just go for the newest stage3 that I easily find.

i'll try newer stage3 tarball now.
