Here is a situation I encountered when trying to emerge Gnome 2.10 - but I have run into it on other packages

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

Calculating world dependencies ...done!
[blocks B ] <=x11-themes/gnome-themes-2.8.2 (is blocking x11-themes/gtk-engines-2.6.3)
********

When I try to unmerge x11-themes/gtk-engines-2.6.3 I get a message that it can't be found.

How do I get rid of it so I can emerge gnome?

Also, I would like to be given a choice as to which package to discard and have the system automatically delete my choice as part of the update procedure - would this be possible?

Somerled,

In your examplke, you need to remove gnome-themes-2.8.2 to allow gtk-engines-2.6.3 to install
Code:
emerge gnome-themes -Cp
is a good start, to ensure only gnome-themes-2.8.2 will be removed, followed by
Code:
emerge gnome-themes -C
to actually do the removal.
When all the blockers have been removed, the emerge you really wanted to do will proceed.
