I don't know what to make of this. When I want to emerge world, I get the following block :

Code:

[blocks B     ] <x11-base/xorg-x11-6.8.0-r4 (is blocking x11-base/opengl-update-2.1.1-r1)


what is wierd is that x11-base/xorg-x11-6.8.0-r4 isn't even installed, as seen from this emerge --pretend xorg-x11 result :

Code:

These are the packages that I would merge, in order:

Calculating dependencies ...done!
[blocks B     ] <x11-base/xorg-x11-6.8.0-r4 (is blocking x11-base/opengl-update-2.1.1-r1)
[ebuild     U ] media-libs/freetype-2.1.9-r1 [2.1.5-r1]
[ebuild     U ] x11-base/opengl-update-2.1.1-r1 [2.0_pre4-r1]
[ebuild     U ] x11-base/xorg-x11-6.8.2-r1 [6.8.0-r3]


I am guessing that I may have tried an emerge for the 6.8.0-r4 version sometime and this updated the version somewhere and that is persiistent.
Anyone knows what may cause this behaviour and how to get rid of it ?

If you look carefully, there is a less than sign in front of the package, so any version less than 6.8.0-r4 is blocking the emerge.

Thanks. That makes sense. Is there anyway I can go on without unmerging the existing version ? I am a little nervous about doing that in case the emerge for the followiing xorg-x11 fails.
