  1. Sorry about yet another noob question from me.


    I somehow lost the overview of the contents in my /etc/portage/package.use file. There are a lot of entries that were asked for by some package I installed. So the file grows and grows. How do you keep this file tidy? How do you know what entries are still required and which became obsolete over time (and a few @world upgrades)?

  2. Here my system info:


    uname -a output:

    Linux localhost 3.14.4-1 #1 SMP Thu May 22 19:38:12 CEST 2014 x86_64 Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU Q 740 @ 1.73GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux

    Desktop: KDE (with the KDE mix-in)

    Mouse: USB Roccat Kone

    Keyboard: USB Das Keyboard Ultimate

    Everything kept working without a reboot but I rebooted anyway.


    I also attached my dmesg if there is anything in there you want to know.


    Hope this helps.


  3. Warning: This is probably a noob question, I just replaced Debian on my Desktop with Funtoo...


    Now I try to allow Python 2 and 3 to coexist peacefully. The main problem are the python_single_target_pythonX_X use flags. A lot of packages need exactly one of them specified. But some require Python 2 and some Python 3.


    In /etc/portage/make.conf  I specified

    PYTHON_TARGETS="python2_7 python3_4"

    If I add python2_7 as single target, some ebuilds start complaining about needing exacly one of the two but not both specified. But if I don't add python2_7, ebuilds that depend on Python 2 won't build. The only solution I found was to specify the use flag for every single application in /etc/portage/package.use like this:

    app-office/libreoffice python_single_target_python2_7

    But that's a lot of lines to add to that file and I figured there has to be a easier way to do this. I tried to find some documentation about Python on Gentoo but wasn't lucky.


    When I try to install ports that depend on Python 2 or when I try to do a 'emerge -uND @world' I get this error:

    The following REQUIRED_USE flag constraints are unsatisfied:

    Thank you,




  4. I just upgraded my KDE system. Until now everything seems to work. The only thing that happend was that the mouse didn't work. But unplugging and replugging it helped. I have to check next boot whether this happens regularly or whether it was just a glitch - this happens, because it's a Roccat Kone which doesn't alway work without troubles anyway.
