did you put X in your /etc/make.conf USE flag section before you did that?

I am facing the same problem.
But in my case package.use is a directory.
What shall I do?


Just this:
Code:
# echo "X11-libs/cairo X" >> /etc/portage/package.use/x11-libx


Note: x11-libs is just a simple plain text file. You can called it whatever you want, portage will scan this directory and it doesn't take care much of file names.

Cheers.

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.
