Hey, I'm having a (very minor) issue with Portage and Java. Here's what's going on:
Code:
root@arrakis:~# emerge --pretend clean

>>> These are the packages that I would unmerge:

 dev-java/sun-jdk
    selected: 1.4.0-r5
   protected: 1.3.1.04
     omitted: none

>>> Packages in red are slated for removal.
>>> Packages in green will not be removed.

Right now I've got the system Java VM set to 1.3.1, but I want to keep the 1.4.0 installed on my system as well, and Portage keeps on trying to get rid of it for me.

I looked around and found this topic from some time ago on the forums which was almost talking about the same thing, but not quite. I still want Portage to update the 1.3 and 1.4 lines when necessary . . . I'm not sure what kind of syntax I'd use for /var/cache/edb/world, if that's the proper solution . . .

Also mentioned on that discussion was the concept of "slots," which are talked about briefly in the Portage Manual, but not in any detail, such as how to set them up, etc. Looking around at the actual ebuilds, I see that all of Sun's JDK ebuilds have specified SLOT=0. I'm guessing what needs to happen is that the 1.3 line would be its own slot, and 1.4 would be its own, etc. Once I've made the changes to my ebuilds, though, how do I "refresh" portage to reflect the changes in slots?

Thanks much for any answers.

Locked as this ended up getting resolved over here.
