trouble emerging vmware-workstation from the vmware overlay
 
Hello.

I am having some trouble installing vmware-workstation from the vmware
overlay:


# emerge -avt vmware-workstation

These are the packages that would be merged, in reverse order:

Here is the reason of your problem. Try to mask vmware-player

That does not seem to be enough.

Looking at the ebuilds, I have found the following:



# grep vmware-modules /var/lib/layman/vmware/app-emulation/vmware-workstation/vmware-workstation-7.1.1.282343.ebuild
PDEPEND="~app-emulation/vmware-modules-238

# grep -B 2 vmware-workstation /var/lib/layman/vmware/app-emulation/vmware-modules/vmware-modules-238.ebuild
DEPEND="${RDEPEND}
|| ( ~app-emulation/vmware-player-3.1.0.261024
~app-emulation/vmware-workstation-7.1.0.261024 )"

# grep -B 2 vmware-workstation /var/lib/layman/vmware/app-emulation/vmware-modules/vmware-modules-238.1.ebuild
DEPEND="${RDEPEND}
|| ( ~app-emulation/vmware-player-3.1.1.282343
~app-emulation/vmware-workstation-7.1.1.282343 )"





Therefore it seems that there are errors in the dependencies in the
ebuilds: vmware-workstation-7.1.1.282343 depends on vmware-modules-238,
which depends on vmware-workstation-7.1.0.261024.

Is this a bug? If so, where should it be reported?

It's an OR (||) relationship. The modules depend on vmware-player OR
vmware-workstation. And likely vmware-player and vmware-workstation
block each other. So you need to install one OR the other and make sure
the other one isn't installed.
