Hi.

I originaly posted
https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic.php?t=189717

And found the xorg-x11 is still classed as unstabele, so i needed to change some stuff.

Ive now got passed the first error, by using

Code:
mkdir /etc/portage
echo "x11-base/xorg-x11 ~x86" >> /etc/portage/packages.keywords
emerge xorg-x11


But, now instead of getting the origianl error:
Code:

!!! all ebuilds that could satisfy "xorg-x11" have been masked
!!! possible candidates are:
-x11-base/xorg -x11-6.7.0-r1 (masked by ~ keyword)
-x11-base/xorg -x11-6.7.0  (masked by ~ keyword)
!!!Error - calculating dependenceies. Please correct


I get this instead

Code:

!!! all ebuilds that could satisfy ">=x11-base/opengl-update-1.7" have been masked
!!! possible candidates are:
-x11-base/opengl-update-1.7.1 (masked by ~ keyword)
-x11-base/opengl-update-1.7 (masked by ~ keyword)
!!! Dependency required by -x11-base/xorg-x11-6.7.0-r1 [ebuild]
!!!Error - calculating dependenceies. Please correct


?????

Also, are their anymore unstable things like this which might crop up 99% through emerging XOrg?? as that would be sour.

Thanks

Hi,

for getting xorg-x11 compiled under x86 you have to put these lines into /etc/portage/package.keywords

Code:

x11-base/xorg-x11 ~x86
x11-base/opengl-update ~x86
x11-terms/xterm ~x86


There's nothing else needed from ~x86 for getting xorg installed

Hi

I added
Code:

x11-base/xorg-x11 ~x86
x11-base/opengl-update ~x86
x11-terms/xterm ~x86


to /etc/portage/package.keywords

But, now i get these errors....

Code:

#emerge xorg-x11

!!! Error:the virtual/x11 package conflicts with another package
!!! Both cannot be installed on the same system together
!!! Please use 'emerge --pretend` to determine blocks

#emerge -p xorg-x11

These are the packages that I would merge in order:

Calculating dependencies...............done!

[blocks     B] x11-base/xfree ("virtual/x11 "from pkg x11-base/xorg-x11-6.7.0-r1
[blocks     B] x11-base/xfree (from pkg x11-base/xorg-x11-6.7.0-r1)
[blocks     B] x11-base/xfree ("virtual/xft "from pkg x11-base/xorg-x11-6.7.0-r1


(The above [blocks B] are in red text, and there are some others below but they are in green)

Im a n00b, but im guessing i would add:

Code:

x11-base/xfree-x11 ~x86


To /etc/portage/package.keywords?????? Would that work????

^^Thats probbably wrong, just though id give it go.

Thanks

No. You need to
Code:
# emerge -C xfree

If you're wanting to switch from xfree to xorg, then the simple way, with minimal disturbance to your usage of the machine, is:
quickpkg xfree (just in case)
emerge --buildpkgonly --nodeps xorg-x11
now shut down X.
emerge -C xfree
emerge --usepkg xorg-x11
restart X

That way, you can still use X while xorg is building, and the only time you'll spend without X is while it removes xfree and installs the binary you just built for xorg. That's a matter of minutes, rather than the one hour plus waiting for xorg to build.
