Hello gentoo people.. im having a problem installing gdm when i start emerge gdm this comes when i reach to some package..
Code:
 * 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 1555:   Called dyn_setup
  ebuild.sh, line 668:   Called pkg_setup
  gtk+-2.8.19.ebuild, line 57:   Called die

!!! cairo needs the X flag set
!!! If you need support, post the topmost build error, and the call stack if relevant.

That means that x11-libs/cairo was not emerged with X support. You will need to re-emerge at least that package with the X USE flag, but, if you plan to use X, maybe it is better that you add that flag globally. You can do so adding the flag "X" to your USE flags in /etc/make.conf. Once it is there, you should do and emerge -uDvNa world, so all the packages in need to be recompiled to use that new flag will be recompiled, x11-libs/cairo amongst them, of course.

Once you are done with that, you can continue where you left off. And gtk+ should now compile fine.

Moved from Desktop Environments to Duplicate Threads, refer to topic "Please re-emerge [solved]".

As noted in the handbook USE flags specified via environment variables are not retained as persistent settings so, aside from when a given USE flag setting is itself transient in nature, use one of the persistent USE flag setting methods (/etc/make.conf, /etc/portage/package.use). Also, note that USE flags are case sensitive.
