Recent update says:

Code:

[blocks B      ] dev-db/mysql ("dev-db/mysql" is blocking dev-db/mariadb-5.5.28)
[blocks B      ] dev-db/mariadb ("dev-db/mariadb" is blocking dev-db/mysql-5.1.66)


What is this, and how can I simply tell mariadb to go away? It's not installed, I never heard of it before today, and I'm not interested. I also do not want >mysql-5.1.66.

EDIT: It seems like mariadb is tied in when using the "minimal" use flag, at least with 5.1.66.

Solved it by masking >virtual/mysql-5.1.

I wonder if this is going to be a big problem later...

MariaDB has been the source of repeated nuisances of this nature for me, and I too bitterly wish it could just go away.

If they really are fully interchangeable, WTH can't it be as simple as package.masking the package (no versions, just any)?
