Hello all, I have been trying to get gnome to install by following some of the configuration guides and some extras here on the forums. I am new to gentoo, and need a bit of assistance.

I have installed the gentoo base successfully. I have also installed xorg-server, xinit, xauth. I run:
Code:
# emerge --newuse --update gnome

Yet I get error prompts about circular dependencies. There are multiple package slot conflicts if I remove the arguments:
Code:
--newuse --update

I have also added to the /etc/portage/package.use file the following: '=dev-libs/openssl-1.0.1h-r2 - bindist' - without that, I run into more errors.

I am using the profile:
Code:
 [5]    default/linux/amd64/13.0/desktop/gnome/systemd *

As far as I gather, the problem seems to be with the USEFLAGS, but I don't know enough to get this resolved on the first install.

Any ideas/help would be great.

Hi yanakis:

Welcome to gentoo!!!

To install gnome you only must run "emerge gnome" with nothing more.

Can you show the output of "emerge --info" and circular dependencies?
