...because the distfile has to be downloaded from the manufacturer, and that file (1.7) is newer than what portage awaits (1.6) (emerge --sync yesterday and I was recently overdoing it)

EDIT: I should add that I use
Code:
Linux localhost 3.6.6-gentoo #6 SMP Wed Nov 21 23:11:55 CET 2012 x86_64 AMD Athlon(tm) II X4 630 Processor AuthenticAMD GNU/Linux
and gnome 3.4.2

I do not use mendeley desktop, but there some general steps to follow.


There are a few things you could do:
  • Open a bug
  • copy the ebuild to a local overlay, and rename it to match the latest version, fetch tarball, digest, emerge
  • try download an old version from the page


The first option is the most permanent one, the second the fastest.
