PostPosted: Mon Feb 19, 2007 6:05 pm    Post subject: Problems emerging gtk [SOLVED] Reply with quote

when I emerge an application that needs gtk for example gaim or firefox, when it gets to the part where it must emerge gtk i get the error

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



the problem is I have checked the make.conf and the X use flag IS set...

emerge -tpv x11-libs/cairo

Code:
x11-libs/cairo-1.2.4 USE="X* -directfb -doc -glitz -png -svg"



emerge --info is way to big for me to type out

Code:
emerge -N mozilla-firefox


seems to work, it emerges the cairo package fine, i think it(or rather i) forgot to update emerge or something... is there a command for update and using the newly added USE flags, without having to type -N all the time

I believe you have it in there now... I see the "*"
Code:
x11-libs/cairo-1.2.4 USE="X* -directfb -doc -glitz -png -svg"
but that doesn't mean you "built" cairo with it in there yet... specifically it means it hasn't been built with it yet and will be when you emerge it..

Code:
emerge cairo



********EDIT********

YES , its
Code:
emerge -uDN world


emerge --sync && emerge -uDNa world could be a daily event for you. It is for me.
If you do not want the need to type the options all the time you can use the EMERGE_DEFAULT_OPTS variable in make.conf
EMERGE_DEFAULT_OPTS="--ask --newuse" but you may find putting those in there to be troublesome at times but you get the idea anyway i hope..

Moved from Portage & Programming 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.
