Can't emerge desktop


Always used kde before with Gentoo; never had a problem.  Now kde install borks at pda-apps/libplist.  Couldn't get past it, so I tried Gnome. Same,  WTF?  Tried Cinnamon and xfce; all same.  Granted, it's been awhile since I left Linux alone (damned MS and its then-president!), but I didn't expect this prob when I came back to the light side.  Had no probs installing the basic OS, or even getting X going with twm.  Cannot see my way past this.  Thanks to anyone in advance for a successfully helping hand!

"Emerge --sync" didn't help, had to mask the package.  (My Gentoo reflexes are rusty - shoulda thought of it at first!).  KDE is installing without a hitch now.  Thanks!!

Check again as some changes were made last night that may resolve your issue.

emerge --sync

I had problem with pda-apps/libplist described in my funtoo bug report:   https://bugs.funtoo.org/browse/FL-3050
Oleg made changes which enabled me to merge pda-apps/libplist
Oleg commented on pda-apps/libplist gentoo bug report : https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=548372#c5
Oleg add package.mask

 # temporarily mask dev-util/sysdig, that require, EAPI=6 libb64. It doesnt have reverse deps. Until FL-3010 covered.

New mask downgrades app-pda/libplist-1.12  to app-pda/libplist-1.11-r1 on my current pure64 system.

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Provide output from these commands to get assistance:

emerge --info
emerge libplist -pv

I know I should have posted the emerge info, but....  Seemed to me that there would be so many complaints about this that the emerge info would be a glut on the forum.


And thanks for responding!  I so recently ran an rsync and etc that I figured I'd have the most recent everything.  Evidently not!
