Problem with udev eudev lvm2 upower

Question

Hi guys,

this is my problem:

 

 [blocks B      ] sys-power/upower ("sys-power/upower" is blocking sys-power/upower-pm-utils-0.9.23)
[blocks B      ] sys-fs/udev ("sys-fs/udev" is blocking sys-fs/eudev-1.5.3-r1)
[blocks B      ] <sys-fs/udev-186 ("<sys-fs/udev-186" is blocking sys-fs/udev-init-scripts-27)
[blocks B      ] <sys-fs/lvm2-2.02.97 ("<sys-fs/lvm2-2.02.97" is blocking sys-fs/eudev-1.5.3-r1)
 
Total: 313 packages (40 upgrades, 253 new, 2 in new slots, 18 reinstalls), Size of downloads: 13,852 kB
Conflict: 4 blocks (4 unsatisfied)
 
!!! Multiple package instances within a single package slot have been pulled
!!! into the dependency graph, resulting in a slot conflict:
 
virtual/udev:0
 
  (virtual/udev-208-r2::gentoo, ebuild scheduled for merge) pulled in by
    =virtual/udev-208-r2 required by (app-misc/media-player-info-21-r1::gentoo, ebuild scheduled for merge)
    >=virtual/udev-206 required by (sys-apps/hwids-20140602::gentoo, ebuild scheduled for merge)
    (and 16 more with the same problems)
 
  (virtual/udev-171::gentoo, installed) pulled in by
    >=virtual/udev-171[gudev,hwdb] required by (sys-fs/udisks-2.0.0::gentoo, ebuild scheduled for merge)
 
 
It may be possible to solve this problem by using package.mask to
prevent one of those packages from being selected. However, it is also
possible that conflicting dependencies exist such that they are
impossible to satisfy simultaneously.  If such a conflict exists in
the dependencies of two different packages, then those packages can
not be installed simultaneously. You may want to try a larger value of
the --backtrack option, such as --backtrack=30, in order to see if
that will solve this conflict automatically.
 
For more information, see MASKED PACKAGES section in the emerge man
page or refer to the Gentoo Handbook.

Try the following...

emerge --unmerge udev && emerge --oneshot eudev && emerge --unmerge upower && emerge --oneshot sys-power/upower-pm-utils

That should fix the udev problems... I was having the same issue trying to install cinnamon.

 

Just make sure that it finishes before you reboot otherwise your system will be broken. udev and upower are both system packages that are nessesary to boot correctly.

 

eudev and upower-pm-utils replace udev and upower respectivly.

 

Hope that this helps.

 

P.S. You will probably have to run the following after the above to fix linked libraries but portage should tell you that.

emerge @preserved-rebuild

I also needed to remove lvm2 first. Then, merging eudev worked as per the one-liner above.
