Many times when we want to install something that have too many dependencies, and some simply couldn't be installed (maybe depending on our arch or other configuration) because of some packages that, according to our use flags, must be installed. If we remove some of these flags for that particular app (and we don't care about it), the installation goes on.

Many users don't know what use flag may be problematic for some ebuilds. So I opened this thread to ask to you to post the apps you tried to install and only managed to do it after removing some of those flags. Maybe we can help people to emerge some specific ebuilds this way.

Post the ebuild name, your arch, and the flags that, after removed or enabled, permitted a (almost) sucessfull installation.

I managed to install these ebuilds only after I changed these flags.
EBUILD........................ARCH........FLAGS
net-fs/samba................amd64......-ldap
sys-apps/pcmcia-cs.......amd64......-X
app-admin/conky..........amd64......-ipv6
