After recent updates complained about something related to mpv and the cli useflag, iirc,
I initially unmerged mpv. When I now try to re-emerge it, this seems to be succesful and
ends with the following messages:

'install' finished successfully (0.699s)
Code:
>>> Completed installing mpv-0.27.2 into /var/tmp/portage/media-video/mpv-0.27.2/image/

>>> No outdated packages were found on your system.

But I do not get an mpv executable. "which mpv" doesn't find anything, and searching for
"mpv" only finds directories:

Code:
/root/.config/mpv
/usr/share/mpv
/usr/include/mpv
/usr/portage/media-video/mpv
/var/lib/layman/melpa-stable/app-emacs/mpv
/var/tmp/portage/media-video/mpv-0.16.0-r1/work/mpv-0.16.0/build/mpv
/var/tmp/portage/media-video/mpv-0.16.0-r1/image/etc/mpv
/home/<myuser>/.config/mpv

Here are my use-flags from /etc/portage/make.cnf:

Code:
CHOST="x86_64-pc-linux-gnu"
...
CPU_FLAGS_X86="aes avx mmx mmxext popcnt sse sse2 sse3 sse4_1 sse4_2 ssse3"
# These are the USE flags that were used in addition to what is provided by the
# profile used for building.
USE="-gnome -kde -minimal alsa cdr dbus dvd ffmpeg flac gtk gtk3 javafx jpeg libmpv lock lua mad mp3 png pulseaudio qt5 session sdl startup-notification tiff thunar udev vorbis X xft xml"

Best regards and a Happy New Year,

It wasn't, and indeed the command <USE="cli" emerge mpv> produced the desired executable.
Thanks! Don't recall having to jump through this hoop before...

P.S. A regular update wants to re-emerge mpv with the "-cli" use flag, why?

It's better use /etc/portage/package.use for enable cli use flag to mpv package, because if you use USE="cli" inline with emerge next update cli will be disabled

koslowj,

That's experience for you.
You get it just after you needed it.

Well, my package.use contains the line

media-video/mpv cli# required by app-emulation/wine-vanilla-4.0::gentoo[sdl]

but still mpv compiles without producing a binary!? What's the correct syntax to force using the cli use-flag?

The output indeed contains "-cli*" (end of first line):

[ebuild R ] media-video/mpv-0.27.2 USE="X alsa dvd egl iconv jpeg libass libmpv lua opengl pulseaudio sdl uchardet xv zlib (-aqua) -archive -bluray -cdda -cli* (-coreaudio) -cplugins (-cuda) -doc -drm -dvb -encode -gbm -jack (-javascript) -lcms (-libav) -libcaca -luajit -openal -oss (-raspberry-pi) -rubberband -samba (-selinux) -test -tools -v4l -vaapi -vdpau -wayland -zsh-completion" PYTHON_TARGETS="python2_7 python3_6 -python3_4 -python3_5"

That appears to be correct. You enabled the cli# flag, but did not enable the cli flag. There is no cli# flag, so enabling it does nothing. Move the # away from the flag. I would put the comment on a completely separate line, although Portage seems to handle having the comment inline if it is not concatenated directly onto the flag name.

OK, I understand what happened: When I manually added the line "media-video/mpv cli" to /etc/portage/package.use, I forgot to add a carriage return. So the next time somethng was added automatically to the file, it was written directly after "cli". This si how "cli#" came about.
