Hi, I installed xorg-x11. (because i wanted x11-wm/i3). xorg-x11 depends on xbacklight. My problem was that xbacklight didn't work because of an error: $ xbacklight -get No outputs have backlight property So, searching on the internet, I found this package: sys-power/acpilight, which works perfectly. From https://github.com/wavexx/acpilight : So, in the end, all I did was: $ emerge --unmerge xbacklight $ emerge acpilight Now, I can perfectly use my i3 WM, change brightness... without any issues. The only problem is that i can't update my system anymore. Since xorg-x11 (which is still installed) depends on xbacklight, when I try to update the system I got: $ sudo emerge -auvDN @world These are the packages that would be merged, in order: Calculating dependencies... done!

What is the right way to do it?
