Last upgrade of stable slim seems to have broken compatibility with slimlock. From the ebuilds:

slimlock-0.11-r1.ebuild: RDEPEND=x11-misc/slim[pam]
slim-1.3.6-r3.ebuild: RDEPEND="pam? ( virtual/pam !x11-misc/slimlock )"

So slimlock requires slim to USE=pam, but then slim-1.3.6-r3 now specifically excludes to run with both pam and slimlock (which is not present in 1.3.5-r4.ebuild).
So obviously there is no way to have them. This is very strange as they were designed to play nice together.

Even stranger is other people on this forum seemed to be able to install both, as can be seen from the thread a month and a half ago https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-973148.html?sid=0ce86acff4c02d5eb1605efc514d

For now I can mask slim-1.3.6 but one day I'll need to upgrade. Are there suggestions on how to get both to work?

slim includes slimlock in its package from 1.3.6.
so you should unmerge x11-misc/slimlock.

I confirm that it is impossible to install slimlock. Must be a bug in the portage tree.

Oh, I see. So actually the upgrade procedure is:

Code:

emerge --unmerge slimlock
USE="pam" emerge =x11-misc/slim-1.3.6-r3


Indeed /usr/bin/slimlock is provided. I now have a bug, which is that the text is misplaced. "(localhost) login:" and "username" are located in the topleft corner of the screen, this is not where the text boxes are (I'm using theme flower2).
