Circular Dependency problem



Hi everybody.

I was installing Funtoo in my notebook and when I try "emerge -a networkmanager" I received a message about circular dependency between cmake and another package. So I try some commands like "emerge -1 --nodeps cmake" or "emerge --nodeps networkmanager" but I don't have good luck.

After that I downloaded a new stage but I find the same problem.

I got that issue today too. Was this other package jsoncpp?


I got around it by emerging an older version of cmake, cmake-, then emerging jsoncpp, and updating cmake to current.


To have portage emerge the older version, try echo ">dev-util/cmake-" >> /etc/portage/package.mask

Once that's done, I removed the line from package.mask


Hope it works for you!
