Magic problem

Post by kaisaras206 »

Just FTPintaled latest Gentoox 7.1

Any time I run magic get this;
A new version of portage is available, this will be installed now.
emerge portage...

* IMPORTANT: 4 news items need reading for repository 'gentoo'.

* Use eselect news to read news items.

Calculating dependencies... done!
[ebuild N ] app-admin/eselect-python-20090824
[ebuild U ] app-admin/eselect-1.2.3 [1.0.11-r1]
[ebuild U ] sys-apps/portage- []

*** Portage will stop merging at this point and reload itself,
then resume the merge.

[blocks B ] app-admin/eselect-news ("app-admin/eselect-news" is blocking app-admin/eselect-1.2.3)

* Error: The above package list contains packages which cannot be
* installed at the same time on the same system.
!! Emerge failed.

That's not a magic problem, it's a problem with portage.

It suggests that you first need to run:

Code: Select all

emerge -C eselect-news
After that, run magic again.

!!! The following installed packages are masked:
- sys-libs/e2fsprogs-libs-1.41.3-r1 (masked by: package.mask)
# Mike Frysinger <> (07 Mar 2010)
# Very old packages that people should have upgraded away from
# long ago. Courtesy mask ... time to upgrade.
# Added <sys-fs/e2fsprogs as well (halcy0n)

- sys-fs/e2fsprogs-1.41.3 (masked by: package.mask)
For more information, see the MASKED PACKAGES section in the emerge
man page or refer to the Gentoo Handbook.
