Hello,

On a previous update a dependency of gtkpod named dev-util/anjuta-3.4.3 failed to emerge.

I decided today just to remove gtkpod but for some reason that I can't figure out, revdep-rebuild keeps trying to pull both gtkpod and anjuta back in.

How can I tell revdep-rebuild that I don't want gtkpod anymore?

I have tried adding them to package.mask but that doesn't seem to give a clean solution as it still gives me errors when doing a revdep.

Thanks for any suggestions

Well, something that is installed requires it. so you will have to find out what it is
Code:
equery depends gtkpod
and the same for anjunta. Then pay attention to USE flag settings for the packages that it spits out. That way you should be able to disable those deps.

It may be from a previous revdep-rebuild run. Could you try
Code:
# revdep-rebuild --ignore
?

FF,

Code:
hayden@sicup ~/.config/gtk-3.0 $ sudo equery depends gtkpod
Password:
 * These packages depend on gtkpod:
hayden@sicup ~/.config/gtk-3.0 $ sudo equery depends anjuta
 * These packages depend on anjuta:
hayden@sicup ~/.config/gtk-3.0 $


I guess I need the packages installed for this to work. The emerge is failing so it's a catch 22.

Code:
hayden@sicup ~/.config/gtk-3.0 $ sudo revdep-rebuild --ignore
 * Configuring search environment for revdep-rebuild
 * Environment mismatch from previous run, deleting temporary files...
......


but this fixed it.

Thanks both for your help.
