I have the xorg version: 6.8.2-r6. I have seen the new version 7.0-r1 is avaiable in portage (i'm using ~x86).
But if I try update it (emerge -u xorg-x11) I recive this error:


Calculating dependencies... done!

!!! Error: the <=x11-base/xorg-x11-6.9 package conflicts with another package;
!!!        the two packages cannot be installed on the same system together.
!!!        Please use 'emerge --pretend' to determine blockers.

Then, I do: emerge --pretend xorg-x11, and I recive:


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

This is only the half of the blokers list...

What can I do to update xorg ? I might force the update, but I don't like this idea... jeje

You have to umerge the monolithic version first. Please see the Xorg-7 migration guide and follow up to topic 435172 if you need further assistance.

Moved from Portage & Programming to Duplicate Threads.
Please read our FAQ Forum, it answers many of your questions.
