Hello, when I've been trying to do a emerge -DuvNta world recently, this is
what I've been getting:
emerge: there are no ebuilds to satisfy "app-text/ghostscript-gpl[cups]".
(dependency required by "net-print/cups-1.5.3" [ebuild])
(dependency required by "dev-java/icedtea-bin-7.2.1-r1[X]" [ebuild])
(dependency required by "@selected" [set])
(dependency required by "@world" [argument])
I can create my own ebuild in my local overlay, but is there a more
permanent fix to this?
USE=cups is masked. icedtea-bin[X] requires cups. icedtea-bin is not
keyworded for Gentoo Prefix.
With that above info, we have already taken care of protecting users
who are not hacking on Gentoo Prefix. After looking at the icedtea-bin
ebuild, looks like you can disable USE=X and install it without cups?
Good luck, you are in untested/unsupported territory,
Thanks. I kind of need X with iced-tea to run desktop apps, so I'll try
unmasking USE=cups and see what happens.
