Looks like qt3 USE flag has been masked in profile since yesterday, so
I think I have your solution now:

echo "-qt3" >> /etc/make.profile/use.mask

Now emerge net-dns/avahi and hopefully it has qt3 enabled, then
hopefully you can emerge the rest like you were trying to do in your
original message.

I did that and get this:

So, that seems to work. Question: Since I want it enabled, why does
there have to be a minus sign in front? Is that to reverse the
disabling elsewhere? It sort of seems backwards.

Yeah, since it is a mask file the minus actually means "don't mask"
and "qt3" without a minus means "mask". I guess they could make an
"unmask" file and let you put "qt3" in there instead.

That explains it. Here is the funny thing now. It had about 50 or so
packages, all KDE 3.5, that needed to be reemerged before this change
was made. Now I get this:


root@smoker ~ # emerge @preserved-rebuild
emerge: 'preserved-rebuild' is an empty set
emerge: no targets left after set expansion
root@smoker ~ #


So, that fixed a lot of things easily. Now the next person knows how to
"correct" this as well.

I think this should be done in /etc/portage/profile/ if it works as
described in man 5 portage.

Should we maintain a use.mask file in the overlay? Similar to
Documentation/package.unmask/kde-3.5

just create a profiles/ folder in overlay and do your magick there (use.mask, package.mask whatever). see kde overlay for help

Yeah, /etc/make.profile is normally a symlink into the portage tree, so
anything there won't survive a sync (without other measures, inappropriate
here).

According to the portage manpage, /etc/portage/profile/ can be used as a
place for sysadmins to put files to locally override the normal profile.
So try creating /etc/portage/profile/use.mask, and putting the "-qt3"
entry there.

Actually that file was already there. It had -arts in it so I added
-qt3. Do I put them all on one line or does each one have to have its
own line? Right now, I have -arts -qt3 on one line.


Thanks.
