Hi, when i try to emerge xchat it came up with an ebuild error,

* Please re-emerge x11-libs/cairo with the X USE flag set

!!! ERROR: x11-libs/gtk+-2.8.19 failed.
Call stack:
ebuild.sh, line 1562: Called dyn_setup
ebuild.sh, line 665: Called pkg_setup
gtk+-2.8.19.ebuild, line 57: Called die

!!! cairo needs the X flag set
so i typed in USE="-X" emerge cairo and it still came up with the previously posted error, please help.

USE="X" emerge cairo :wink:
-X disables the use flag

You should edit your /etc/make.conf file and add the "X" flag to it. You probably have -X in it so just remove the "-". If you dont then the next time you do an emerge -uD or -uDN it will try to rebuild it with -X. If your running X then you want all X aware progs to build with X support.
