1. put USE="-gnome" in your /etc/make.conf file
2. change your profile (eselect profile) if it was gnome
3.
Code:
emerge -C $(grep gnome /var/lib/portage/world)

4.
Code:
 emerge -DuNav world && emerge -Da --depclean && revdep-rebuild -i

Hello,

Sorry for bumping an old post, but is there a way to check what is dependent on existing gnome packages installed?

I ran the above commands but I am still seeing gnome packages installed

Code:

# equery list "*" | grep gnome
app-text/gnome-doc-utils-0.20.6
gnome-base/gconf-2.32.4
gnome-base/gnome-keyring-2.32.1-r1
gnome-base/gvfs-1.6.7-r1
gnome-base/libglade-2.6.4
gnome-base/libgnome-keyring-2.32.0
gnome-base/librsvg-2.34.1-r1
gnome-base/orbit-2.14.19-r1
gnome-extra/gnome-audio-2.22.2
gnome-extra/polkit-gnome-0.101-r1
net-libs/libsoup-gnome-2.34.3
sys-apps/gnome-disk-utility-2.32.1-r1
x11-libs/gnome-pty-helper-0.28.1
x11-themes/gnome-icon-theme-3.0.0


how do I see why gnome-audio is still installed and not picked up by --depclean? it is not in my world file.

If you run

Code:
emerge --depclean -pv


it lists all packages and why they are pulled in, be warned though, depending on how many packages you have installed the output is long.

What I do is dump it into a file for easy searching.
