[GENTOO] Question about emerge and use flags


Hi.

My profile is: "default/linux/x86/2008.0/desktop"

If I look at /usr/portage/profiles/targets/desktop/make.defaults, I see this list of USE flags:

Code:
# cat make.defaults
# Copyright 1999-2008 Gentoo Foundation
# Distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License v2
# $Header: /var/cvsroot/gentoo-x86/profiles/targets/desktop/make.defaults,v 1.4 2008/12/19 11:33:35 armin76 Exp $

USE="acpi alsa branding cairo cdr dbus dvd dvdr dvdread eds emboss encode esd evo fam firefox gif gnome gpm gstreamer gtk hal jpeg kde ldap libnotify mad mikmod mp3 mpeg ogg opengl pdf png ppds qt3 qt3support qt4 quicktime sdl spell svg tiff truetype vorbis win32codecs unicode usb X xml xulrunner xv"

# This is added for GNOME/Xfce
USE="${USE} startup-notification"

# Adding this for bluetooth support
USE="${USE} bluetooth"
But, if I type "emerge --info" I see:

Code:
USE="X acl acpi alsa berkdb bluetooth branding bzip2 cairo cdr cli cracklib crypt cups dbus dri dvd dvdr dvdread eds emboss encode esd evo fam firefox fortran gdbm gif gnome gpm gstreamer gtk hal iconv ipv6 isdnlog jpeg ldap libnotify mad midi mikmod mp3 mpeg mudflap ncurses nls nptl nptlonly ogg opengl openmp pam pcre pdf perl png ppds pppd python qt3 qt3support qt4 quicktime readline reflection sdl session spell spl ssl startup-notification svg sysfs tcpd tiff truetype unicode usb vorbis win32codecs x86 xml xorg xulrunner xv zlib"
Well, so where are listed those flags? In which file?

My /etc/make.conf contains:

USE="-kde"



I think the answer is in the "cascading profiles" concept of Gentoo..

Did you migrate to 'cascading profiles'?

AFAIK this is not enabled by default and reading the documentation I understand why.

h725,

Gentoo profiles have a hierarchy. USE flags set in higher levels are set in lower levels unless unset there.

emerge ufed to see what flags are set where.
This will not show you settings in /etc/portage/package.use.
