Unhappy unsatisfied dependencies


i just installed gentoo and i am trying to install a window manager. in the install instructions it said to type
emerge --usepkg kde or emerge --usepkgonly kde
when i did that it said
!!!! there are no packages availabe to satisfy: "=dev-libs/glib-1.2*"
if i look in the folder it is glib 2.6 and not 1.2. shouldnt this work for it? it says to either add a suitable binary package or compile from an ebuild. i tried installing glib 2.6 and the same error came up.

when i try to install gnome is says the x11-base/xorg-x11 package conflicts with another package.

im not sure what to do. its gentoo 2005.0 on an averatec 3150

kde shouldn't need glib... that's a gnome dependency... i'd guess that you're using a use flag that is somehow pulling some old gtk / gnome app along with it. what does "emerge --pretend --tree kde" say?

i tried it a few more times and that error went away after just typing "emerge kde" so it would get the files online. a few more errors popped up. i installed the missing peices and continued.
now after waiting for about FOUR HOURS for kde to install (not counting download time) it said

ERROR: kde-base/kdelibs-3.4.1-r1 failed
Function kde_src_compile, Line 164, Exitcode 2
died running emake, kde_src_compile:make

so i tried doing just "emerge =kde-base/kdelibs-3.4.1-r1". another 2 hours later and i got the same error message.

what do i do... should it be this difficult???... should it realy take that PHREEKING long !?!?...

Any time you get errors from emerge, try re-syncing (emerge --sync). As much as i love portage, I'll be the first to admit it gets flakey sometimes
after resyncing, try this -
emerge autoconf
emerge cccache

Add the following lines to /etc/make.conf
FEATURES="ccache"
CCACHE_SIZE="2G"

ccache will reduce the compile time for KDE/Gnome/OOo/Mozilla/<insert big huge app here> by ALOT.

Post your
/etc/make.conf
/etc/portage/package.keywords
/etc/portage/package.use

Also look into using the split ebuilds for KDE instead of the meta-package. http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/kde-config.xml

it said there was no ebuild for "cccache". did you mean "ccache"? i did that. and i did a sync yesterday (took an hour)

/etc/make.conf
----------------------------------
CFLAGS="-02 -march=athlon-xp -fomit-frame-pointer"
CHOST="i686-pc-linux-gnu"
CXXFLAGS="{CFLAGS}"
FEATURES="ccache"
CCACHE_SIZE="2G"
----------------------------------

the other two dont exist

Sorry about the cccache typo. Looks like you have that set up fine already.

package.keywords and package.use don't need to exist, thats ok.

You need a USE line in your make.conf file.
Here's an example for a KDE system. Look here http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handboo...?part=2&chap=2 for more information.
USE="-gnome -gtk kde qt arts alsa oss"

I'm afraid that none of this is going to fix your bug though. Try posting the error on the Gentoo message boards where one of the developers can have a look at it.
