Heya,

I unmerged mozilla and mozilla-launcher yesterday, and merged firefox. With today's world-update, however, it wants to merge both mozilla and mozilla-launcher again? Why? How do I remove them completely from my system? Are there some dependencies somewhere??

Thanks :)
Jens

You can find out the dependencies with
Code:
qpkg -q mozilla

Thanks. Apparently firefox requires both packages. So what's the point in having it in the first place, I wonder? If I need to have mozilla installed and can't replace it, I can use it anyway... So I don't need firefox.

I have firefox, but not mozilla.
I wonder what the deal is with yours.

Well, I used to use mozilla and mozilla-launcher. Two days ago I added firefox to my system and it was working ok. So I unmerged mozilla, and with the next world update it got merged back into the system.

That's why I was wondering if there are dependencies between packages, and apparently firefox depends on mozilla and mozilla-launcher. Which makes firefox obsolete. Kinda ;-)

If you really don't want mozilla, and it insists on being installed, you could remove it, and inject a stub for it, then when you emerge firefox, it would think mozilla was installed. It's not how it should have to be, but it may solve your problem (unless of course, firefox really does depend on it, in which case, you would really need it!)

From "man emerge"
Code:
 inject (-i)
              Injecting a package inserts a 'stub' for that  package  so  that
              Portage  thinks  that it is installed.  It is handy if you need,
              say, a binary version of XFree86 for esoteric hardware,  or  you
              just  like  to roll your own packages.  You must specify a cate-
              gory and particular version of a  package  for  injecting.   For
              example, emerge inject sys-kernel/gentoo-sources-2.4.19.
