On all three of my IBM 44P-170's I'm getting the following error while trying to update.
Quote:
ibm_right greg # emerge --pretend coreutils

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Calculating dependencies... done!
[ebuild U ] sys-devel/automake-1.10.1 [1.10]
[ebuild U ] sys-apps/coreutils-6.10-r1 [6.9-r1] USE="-vanilla%"
[blocks B ] sys-apps/mktemp (is blocking sys-apps/coreutils-6.10-r1)
[blocks B ] >=sys-apps/coreutils-6.10 (is blocking sys-apps/mktemp-1.5)

I got past it on one of them but don't remember how. Would this be considered a bug?

Wow! That was fast. I did actually just do that. I must be spoiled. I expect everything to be automatic.

Not an unreasonable expectation if you're not running ~arch. I was kind of surprised to see this on my stable system.

Which I'm not.

Must I say thankyou to a New Zealander as an Australian? :D

Just kidding, thanks for the help "chainsawbike", I just started with Gentoo and was trying my first system update and came across this.

I'm doing a fresh install on my laptop and ran into this issue, and knowing the fix unmerged mktemp, updated coreutils. Now I can't do a clean shutdown of my system and RC fails after starting 3 services because "/sbin/mktemp" cannot be found. I've done an "#emerge -uDN world" three times just to make sure I have the correct version of coreutils, and nothing. Hrm, would a #revdep-rebuild fix this?

mktemp is located at /usr/bin/mktemp. Could you please say which service is failing? You might have to install that package so you get updated configs?

Hi

I also have the coreutils<->mktemp block,
but when i unmerge mktemp and want to merge coreutils,
there is another block:
Code:
aim-rush ~ # emerge sys-apps/coreutils
Calculating dependencies... done!
[ebuild     U ] sys-devel/autoconf-2.62-r1 [2.60]
[ebuild     U ] sys-devel/automake-1.10.1-r1 [1.10]
[ebuild     U ] sys-apps/coreutils-6.12 [6.7-r1] USE="-vanilla% -xattr%"
[blocks B     ] <sys-apps/util-linux-2.13 (is blocking sys-apps/coreutils-6.12)

 * Error: The above package list contains packages which cannot be
 * installed at the same time on the same system.

For more information about Blocked Packages, please refer to the following
section of the Gentoo Linux x86 Handbook (architecture is irrelevant):

http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handbook/handbook-x86.xml?full=1#blocked


SInce for both of them it says
Code:
!!! 'sys-apps/util-linux' is part of your system profile.
!!! Unmerging it may be damaging to your system.

i wonder how i should proceed?

Thanks for helping
Jody

Grabbed the words out of my mouth. Shouldn't both packages be oneshotted? (emerge -1)?

I had the same problem when I decided that I could resolve the problem by just masking the coreutils version which clashed. Then everything updated fine with only one problem: my system would not finish the reboot. That is it would finalize all processes and running daemons but the actual power-off would not happen. Then searching for a sollution to this problem I came across this post and unmerged mktemp still having the old coreutils (<sys-apps/coreutils-6.10) which resulted in the exact situation as yours. So I updated my coreutils to the correct version (>=sys-apps/coreutils-6.10) and everything was OK. My guess would be that you should do a emerge --sync to get the correct version of coreutils.

--Just my 2 cents.
