media-libs/xpm was removed from portage. Portage just thinks the xpm package was renamed to xfree, that's why it says it wants to remove the "old version" of xfree.

Also, some packages might complain about the absence of media-libs/xpm:
Code:
emerge: there are no masked or unmasked ebuilds to satisfy ">=media-libs/xpm-3.4".

'emerge sync' should solve this problem.

I got this error when typing 'emerge -up -D world'
After removing the gnucash-1.8.4.ebuild and emerge sync, the error still appeared.

Code:

These are the packages that I would merge, in order:

Calculating world dependencies   
emerge: there are no masked or unmasked ebuilds to satisfy ">=media-libs/xpm-3.4".

!!! Problem with ebuild app-office/gnucash-1.8.4
!!! Possibly a DEPEND/*DEPEND problem.

!!! Depgraph creation failed.

It may be worth noting that in my case portage was doing this after emerging a package:
Code:
>>> Auto-cleaning packages ...
 
 x11-base/xfree
    selected: 4.3.0-r2
   protected: 3.4k-r1
     omitted: none


It seems the "older" xpm package was the protected one, so x was selected to be wiped out. A quick control-c stopped that, but it could have gotten ugly.

Syncing didn't fix it for me, but doing "emerge unmerge xfree-3.4k-r1" took care of the conflict.

It actually removed my xfree... I got stuck with a virtual-xfree running from the system memory. Perfectly working but unable to open new windows... funny how I emerged xfree in a system technically without xfree... from an xterm. :P

Hi
"Lucky" me AUTOCLEAN="no" here..
and 2 syncs(at limit) later I still have an emerge -p clean like wormie.

/var/db/pkg/x11-base/xfree-3.4k-r1 <-----??????????

This does not make sence.

Do I just rm -r /var/db/pkg/x11-base/xfree-3.4k-r1
or wait for a cleaned up portage sync later?

Try wormie's solution:
Code:
emerge unmerge xfree-3.4k-r1

Hi
Thanks for pointing it out.
Apologies to wormie for not carefully reading his solution. :oops:

Hi
Not sure if it is a reliable solution.
On machine where I unmerged xfree-3.4k-r1 I now have
$ rxvt
rxvt: error while loading shared libraries: libXpm.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

On another machine where I have not unmerged xfree-3.4k-r1
epm -qf /usr/X11R6/lib/libXpm.so.4
xfree-4.3.0-r2
xfree-3.4k-r1


Very late here.
Weird portage.
Big problemo for later.
Shutting down.

Well emerging xfree again should solve this. I don't know if there are other nicer solutions... :?

I had the same problem and remerging xfree did solve the problem, here. The bug is reported as #22707.

I had the same problem and totally panicked. Re-emerging xfree seems to have fixed it. But while I was trying to figure out what was going on I noticed that qpkg was not working. I was getting a syntax error near line 62. Even with my limited shell program abilities, I could tell something was seriously corrupted. But when I reemerged gentoolkit, I got the same thing. The question is, where does gentoolkit come from? There's nothing in /usr/portage/distfiles and SRC_URI is blank. How should I fix this kind of problem? (I copied /usr/bin/qpkg from another machine this time.)

qpkg is working, here. I doubt that that is related. What was the exact command that you issued and what was its output?

look at the file subdir of /usr/portage/app-admin/gentoolkit. It's all there. :)

I had the same issue, just emerging rxvt again fixed it.

I'm betting similar problems may pop up with other packages, so remerging xfree may be the better long term solution, but I'm going to avoid that as long as possible.

Hi
Yes as expected emerge xfree fixed my problem.
My aim was to avoid useless xfreee recompilation(2h),
I failed, and should have waited for cleaned up sync.

I fell like a guneay pig!

Today's emerge sync resulted in eveything about
xpm or dummy/voodoo xfree-3.4k-r1 or xfree-3.4k-r2 not there,
gone from portage tree, useless, failed or whatever...

Would love/appreciate some kind of heads up please read this first
we are testing this portage problem with this proposed
sticky or something) solution...
(I cruse regularly gentoo cvs ans bugzilla,
am not an expert and don't read everything)

My forthcomming local solution( kinda looking out for myself):
before portage sync, backup current portage tree,
then figure out(my problem not yet there)
about seting upp local gentoo rscynd server
to point to backed up old portage tree if current
portage tree seem's weird and then re-sync to old/backed portage tree.
ie,
back out.
S_it would love to avoid this.

Thats a known bug. Look at /usr/bin/qpkg at line 62 and move (i think) the -m|--masked line so its in the same place as the rest of the options

ie:
Code:
        -fp|--find-pattern)
                ffind=y
                fpat=y
                inst=y
                ;;

        -I|--installed)
                inst=y
                ;;

        -m|--masked)
                grepmask="-L"
                ;;

        -n|--non-masked)
                grepmask="-l"
                ;;

hehe, I lost my X on this one :(
But there is nothing a quick 'emerge xfree' can't solve. (All my configurations was intact) :)

hehe, I know, but since it only takes me 3 hours emerging xfree, it isn't a problem for me, glad it didn't remove gnome instead.
