When trying to

Code:
emerge --ask x11-base/xorg-server



I get this error :

Code:
The following USE changes are necessary to proceed:
 (see "package.use" in the portage(5) man page for more details)
# required by x11-drivers/xf86-video-ati-7.7.0::gentoo[glamor]
# required by x11-base/xorg-drivers-1.18-r1::gentoo[video_cards_radeonsi]
>=x11-base/xorg-server-1.18.4 glamor


How can I properly fix this?

Thanks

You are missing the
Code:
glamor
use flag,

Try emerge using

Code:
emerge --ask x11-base/xorg-server --autounmask-write


to automatically do this for you.

unfmachine,

USE=glamor is a 3D option. If you need it, you need it everywhere its optional.
Consider putting glamor to your USE in make.conf.

In general, --autounmask-write should be avoided. You loose control of your install because you don't think about what --autounmask-write is doing.

If x11-base/xorg-server is the only package in the tree that uses glamor, its not a problem as you yet the result you need - until its added somewhere else.
glamor is presently used by five packages in the tree all of which are xorg-server or Xorg-drivers related.

Adding >=x11-base/xorg-server-1.18.4 glamor to package.use is therefore safe and keeps the clutter out of make.conf.

Thank you both for your solutions. I'm glad I now know how to do it the quick way and a way that will allow me to keep a less messy system.
