Gentoo: emerge -uUa world is no longer working


Since my latest install of Gentoo I can no longer emerge -uUa world and update my system. For the past 6 months it's simply told me there are no new packages, which I find hard to believe.

Any ideas on where I can look for more info?

emerge sync! Duh...

Well, it found about 110 packages out of date. However I ran into another problem.

When I do emerga -uUa world it got down to about 85 packages left and stopped at alsa

I have alsa compiled into my kernel and it wont let me emerge the new version, nor will it just skip it and go to the next. Anything I can do about this?

checking for built-in ALSA... "yes"
configure: error: You have built-in ALSA in your kernel.

!!! ERROR: media-sound/alsa-driver-1.0.5a failed.
!!! Function econf, Line 362, Exitcode 1
!!! econf failed

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

I removed alsa from my USE flags, but still get this error, do I need to recompile my kernel...again...without ALSA support?

add "-alsa" to your use flags in make.conf... alsa is enabled by default you have to explicitly prohibit it, by using -alsa.
