Hi, my first post here. Seem to be having a problem unmerging nvidia-glx.
Code:

>>> Unmerging media-video/nvidia-glx-1.0.5336-r2...
No package files given... Grabbing a set.

QA Notice: ECLASS 'eutils' inherited illegally in media-video/nvidia-glx-1.0.5336-r2


QA Notice: ECLASS 'multilib' inherited illegally in media-video/nvidia-glx-1.0.5336-r2

/usr/lib/portage/bin/ebuild.sh: /var/db/pkg/media-video/nvidia-glx-1.0.5336-r2/nvidia-glx-1.0.5336-r2.ebuild: line 98: unexpected EOF while looking for matching ``'
/usr/lib/portage/bin/ebuild.sh: /var/db/pkg/media-video/nvidia-glx-1.0.5336-r2/nvidia-glx-1.0.5336-r2.ebuild: line 131: syntax error: unexpected end of file

!!! ERROR: media-video/nvidia-glx-1.0.5336-r2 failed.
!!! Function , Line 1702, Exitcode 1
!!! error sourcing ebuild
!!! If you need support, post the topmost build error, NOT this status message.

!!! FAILED prerm: 1


I did a search for similar problems, but the solutions seemed to be specific to other packages.

Any help resolving this, is appreciated.

Thanks.

What command did you use to unemerge? Try running emerge -C nvidia-glx.

Inspect the file /var/db/pkg/media-video/nvidia-glx-1.0.5336-r2/nvidia-glx-1.0.5336-r2.ebuild with a text editor and try to find and fix the syntax error. Watch out for strange control characters in this file.

Moved from Portage & Programming. Please see the FAQ GF19: Emerge fails to unmerge a package.
