Hi all,

I just made a (fresh) hardened installation and recompiled the system with emerge -De world. Then i tried to emerge syslog-ng but i get an error because of circular dependencies:

Calculating dependencies... done!
[nomerge ] app-admin/syslog-ng-2.0.8 USE="hardened tcpd -ipv6 (-selinux) -spoof-source -static"
[nomerge ] dev-libs/glib-2.16.1 USE="fam hardened xattr -debug -doc (-selinux)"
[ebuild N ] app-admin/gamin-0.1.9 USE="-debug"
[ebuild N ] dev-libs/glib-2.16.1 USE="fam hardened xattr -debug -doc (-selinux)"
!!! Error: circular dependencies:

('ebuild', '/', 'app-admin/gamin-0.1.9', 'merge') depends on
('ebuild', '/', 'dev-libs/glib-2.16.1', 'merge') (hard)
('ebuild', '/', 'dev-libs/glib-2.16.1', 'merge') depends on
('ebuild', '/', 'app-admin/gamin-0.1.9', 'merge') (hard)

!!! Note that circular dependencies can often be avoided by temporarily
!!! disabling USE flags that trigger optional dependencies.

I already synchronized my portage-list, but it didn't fix the problem. Can you guys point me in the right direction?

Thanks,
Josef

# emerge -1 glib
# emerge syslog-ng

Installing >=pam_usb-0.4.1 on gentoo 2007.0 and ran into a big wad of circular dependencies:
hal-0.5.9-r3
hal-info-20070618
glib-2.16.3-r1
gamin-0.1.9-r1
dbus-glib-0.74

Just getting gamin and glib installed took care of the circular dependencies issue. Of course, now I'm working around blocked device-mapper package, but, it's progress...

PS - updating device-mapper to =sys-fs/device-mapper-1.02.19-r1 allowed pam-usb-0.4.2 to be installed; higher than that, to 1.02.24, brought in the issues between udev and device-mapper, which was more of a setback than I was interested in getting into just yet...

The fam flag issue regarding circular dependencies is listed as a sticky:

https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-699705.html

Please post further questions in that thread. Thanks. :)

Marking as a duplicate thread of above.
