Default vmware-tools and revdep-rebuild

Hello,

after upgrading the kernel on a Gentoo machine which is a VMWare guest,
I also upgraded vmware-tools (this means, emerge the package, mount the
.iso with -o loop, and run ./INSTALL).

Basically, no problem as usual, but now revdep-rebuild complains about
some files which were installed by vmware-tools:

--- cut ---

Seems that most of the files are intended for some graphical desktops (which
are not needed here but are installed by vmware-tools anyway).

Can I somehow get rid of those messages (apart from just deleting those unneeded
libraries which may break other things)? I already tried some configuration with
LD_LIBRARY_MASK, but to no avail.

Thanks,

-Matt

You want SEARCH_DIRS and SERACH_DIRS_MASK entires
in /etc/revdep-rebuild.

man rebdep-rebuild for details

Oh dear, yet another typo.....

At this rate, I'll be losing my grammar-nazi rights very very shortly
indeed.

It's been a hard day, I now know two things:

1. XBMC will not "run" on the raspberrypi for any sane definition of
"run"

2. A dead Dell XPS with a heat stressed nVidia graphics can be
resurrected with 10 minutes in the wife's hot oven

What does this have to do with Gentoo? Nothing really, except that my
xbmc dev system runs on this gentoo laptop :-)
