Here is the error I am getting when I try to update xorg...

Code:
QA Notice: the following files are setXid, dyn linked, and using lazy bindings
 This combination is generally discouraged.  Try re-emerging the package:
 LDFLAGS='-Wl,-z,now' emerge xorg-server
LAZY usr/bin/Xorg

>>> Merging x11-base/xorg-server-1.1.1-r1 to /
 * >>> SetUID: [chmod go-r] /var/tmp/portage/xorg-server-1.1.1-r1/image//usr/bin/Xorg  ...                             [ ok ]--- /usr/
--- /usr/share/
--- /usr/share/man/
--- /usr/share/man/man1/

>>> /usr/share/man/man5/getconfig.5x.gz
--- /usr/share/X11/
--- /usr/share/X11/xkb/

!!! Cannot write to '/usr/share/X11/xkb/compiled'.
!!! Please check permissions and directories for broken symlinks.
!!! You may start the merge process again by using ebuild:
!!! ebuild /usr/portage/x11-base/xorg-server/xorg-server-1.1.1-r1.ebuild merge
!!! And finish by running this: env-update


I tried this command but I get the same error...

Code:
LDFLAGS='-Wl,-z,now' emerge xorg-server


Also the compiled file links to /var/lib/xkb.

Can someone help me out here please. This is really annoying. Thanks.

You might need to re-emerge xkeyboard-config.
Code:
emerge -av --oneshot xkeyboard-config

To create /var/lib/xkb, which is pointed to by that symlink:
Code:
emerge -1 xkbcomp

I did this and /var/lib/xkb was not created. How can I get this. Thanks for the replies.

Re-sync with Portage, then re-emerge xkbcomp. It is done by this command in /usr/portage/x11-apps/xkbcomp/xkbcomp-1.0.2.ebuild
Code:
dodir /var/lib/xkb

Thanks for the replies. I got this problem fixed. What I did was to unmerge xkbcomp and then emerge it again. This created the directory I needed and allowed xorg-server to be compiled and installed. Again thanks for the help.

...and thanks for this thread. I've just encountered the same problem, and it all worked after unmerging and emerging xkbcomp.
