Hi,

Every time I emerge something, I get the following messages:

Quote:

>>> Regenerating /etc/ld.so.cache...
* Caching service dependencies...
* Service 'vcron' already provide 'cron'!;
* Not adding service 'vixie-cron'... [ ok ]


I really get puzzled about this. since it seems to me vcron and
vixie-cron are the same thing. I've tried "emerge -C vcron",
but there's no change. Can anyone tell me what's the difference
with these two packages? Although everything else seems fine,
how can I get rid of the annoying messages?

Thanks!

This is not new - have a look at this thread for the exact same problem.

(Oh - and a solution, of course! ;-))

tomk pointed out that there are a lot of people having issues with this. The official solution thread is here: Minor service dependancy annoyance... Please post there for further assistance on this topic.

Moving from Portage and Programming.
