Any suggestion for me?

There's no such problem with lightdm, in fact plasma-meta alternatively pulls it in if you set USE=-sddm but it can be installed side-by-side either way.

Please just pastebin your blockers in such cases right away.

Hi genstorm,
sorry to come back only now, but I decided to restart from zero in installing Gentoo so to be able to better try your suggestions.
OK. I reached the phase in which I choose the systemd way selecting the profile 9 (plasma/systemd). Now, when I give "emerge --deep --with-bdeps=y --newuse --update @world", emerge begins its work (about 205 packages!) but suddendly stops with this final message:

ERROR: app-misc/media-player-info-22::gentoo failed (configure phase):
* econf failed
ERROR: dev-libs/libatasmart-0.19-r1::gentoo failed (configure phase):
* econf failed.

I cannot wgetpaste the output of 'emerge --info =app-misc/media-player-info-22', and 'emerge --info =dev-libs/libatasmart-0.19-r1' because I'm in chroot (I installed wgetpaste, but it doesn't run as expected).

All this is truly too difficult for me, although I learned many and many things from you and other guru on gentoo.org. Which is the meaning of the message? What could I do to keep going?
Anyhow, thanks for your much waited help.

P.S. This is not a battle, it is a true war.

Rule no. 1: Never waste time on re-installing Gentoo!

Anyway, these are not the actual error messages, so we'd really need the respective build logs. Portage, at the end of the errored build, tells you where to get it, I'm sure you'll find a way to transfer it to your working system. ;)

As always, you are right!

I hope this is all what is needed.
I learned another Gentoo propriety!
Thanks.

That's really strange, both packages correctly have virtual/udev in DEPEND so that means the error should not happen. Are you building an openrc or systemd system right now? Do you have sys-fs/udev, sys-fs/eudev or sys-apps/systemd installed? Please also post your emerge --info.

I'm building a systemd system. Installed: virtual/udev-215 (USE="-systemd"). Not installed sys-apps/systemd; sys-fs/udev, sys-fs/eudev.

emerge --info = https://bpaste.net/show/515a4d4f898d

Thanks,

Why, then, virtual/udev-215 (USE="-systemd")? What's happening when you `emerge -vp virtual/udev`?

If I run "emerge -pv virtual/udev", I get a list of 63 packages to install, but simultaneously circular dependencies that I can resolve through:
USE="-graphite" emerge =media-libs/harfbuzz-1.1.3.

The installation begins but again suddendly I fall into the two ERRORS (media-player-info; libatasmart):

At the same time, portage tells you how to solve the circular dependencies. Set the use flags temporarily as suggested.

Anyway, the reason why these two packages fail to install is because none of the required packages (either systemd, udev or eudev) are installed.

Try to get around that by `emerge -1v systemd` since that is what you want. You should do that right before anything else.

Trying 'emerge -1v systemd', I get the usual list of 63 packages to install, the usual circular dependencies to resolve, and I must install again media-libs/harfbuzz with USE="-graphite". At this point a new list of 130 packages begins to be ionstalled, but when only 3 jobs of 130 are completed, again I get the two usual Error messages.

Since there was in portage's output a context about udev and systemd, I kept away sys-fs/udev from @world by: emerge --deselect sys-fs/udev. Magically, the command "emerge --deep --with-bdeps=y --newuse --update @world" to fulfill the profile's requests was accomplished. When it will be finished, I'll controll whether systemd now is installed or not.

Anyhow, I'll move forward in the war campaign. Your help led me to the filing of weapons. Thanks.

So, that's what you do:

USE="-qt5 -graphite" emerge -1v systemd
