I'm installing on a laptop. Did the kernel install a few weeks back but only now got back to it because I couldn't get ethernet running. This now works so I want to continue installing a desktop.

I selected as profile "default/linux/amd64/13.0/desktop/kde" as I'll use standard KDE and no systemd.

I started with an "emerge --sync" and then continued with "emerge --pretend x11-base/xorg-drivers". This gave me a slot conflict for perl:0. There were 9 packages that wanted =perl-5.20 and 19 that insisted on =perl-5.22.

Afetr a bit of googling I ran "perl-cleaner --all". This apparantly cleaned up a lot and ended with telling me to run "emerge @preserved-rebuild". This rebuild a dozen packages or so and then stranded on texinfo-6.1.

To make sure I ran "emerge --update perl" wich updated to perl-5.22 and this ends with
Code:
!!! existing preserved libs:
>>> package: dev-lang/perl-5.22.2
* - /usr/lib64/libperl.so.5.20
* - /usr/lib64/libperl.so.5.20.2
*      used by /usr/lib64/texinfo/XSParagraph.so (sys-apps/texinfo-6.1)
Use emerge @preserved-rebuild to rebuild packages using these libraries


But running "emerge @preserved-rebuild" gives:
Code:
rm -rf $backupdir; exit $rc
Can't locate Locale/Messages.pm in @INC (you may need to install the Locale::Messages module) .... (long line)
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at ../tp/texi2any line 109
Makefile:1274: recipe for target 'info-stnd.info' failed
make[3]: *** [info-stnd.info] Error 2
make[3]: Leaving
etc


So I'm stuck.

OK, got through it.

First "emerge Locale-gettext" then "perl-cleaner --all" again. At least @preserved-rebuild was happy and so was revdep-rebuild.

Can do anything on Gentoo anymore without running into Perl or Python trouble these days.
