xorg conflicts

Question

After following the instructions at https://github.com/funtoo/meta-repoI attempted to 'emerge -auDN @world'.  It's not going well.  I'm getting the following message. 

Oops! Conflicts have been encountered:

>>> x11-drivers/xf86-input-synaptics-1.8.3:0/0::gentoo, installed, wants x11-base/xorg-server:0/1.18.4=
>>> x11-drivers/xf86-video-vesa-2.3.4:0/0::gentoo, installed, wants x11-base/xorg-server:0/1.18.4=

>>> x11-drivers/xf86-input-keyboard-1.8.1:0/0::gentoo, installed, wants x11-base/xorg-server:0/1.18.4=

My candidates are:

>>> x11-base/xorg-server-1.18.4:0/1.18.4::gentoo, installed has SLOT 0/1.18.4
>>> x11-base/xorg-server-1.18.4:0/1.18.4::gentoo, installed, wants >=x11-base/xorg-drivers-1.18

My candidates are:

>>> x11-base/xorg-drivers-1.17:0/0::xorg-kit, ebuild scheduled for merge has SLOT 0/0
>>> x11-base/xorg-drivers-1.18-r1:0/0::gentoo, installed has SLOT 0/0


We hope this informational output has been useful in identifying the
problem. We are continually working to reduce conflicts. Do not
hesitate to report a bug at https://bugs.funtoo.org. Thank you! :)

I'm still a little unclear how kits are supposed to work, so it's possible I've done something wrong.  I was running Funtoo stable, and I'd like to minimize my daily updates.  So /etc/ego.conf does not have any kits defined.

Actually, I was able to upgrade @world by excluding only xf86-input-evdev.  So I am fully updated except for some xorg-related stuff.  Any ideas what I should do to update those?  Am I going to have to unmerge them all, then emerge them again?  (And hope that nothing goes wrong?)

mv /var/lib/portage/world /var/lib/portage/world.bak and try updating.

I would first see if

emerge xorg-drivers xorg-server xf86-input-evdev

work. If this still doesn't work I would unmerge xf86-input-evdev and try again.

 

This worked, thanks.  And a subsequent 'emerge -auDN @world' worked as well, with no errors.

 

I've seen this before -- sometimes packages fail to upgrade during 'emerge -auDN @world', but the same packages can be upgraded via 'emerge packagename'.  Can anybody tell me why?
