I'm not sure that this is the correct place for this question, but here goes:

Every time I try to do an
Code:
emerge -uD world


portage wants to emerge nvidia-kernel. Now this is pretty odd for an ATI system, I think. I've tried using
Code:
emerge -pvet world

which tells me that americas-army wants the nvidia module installed, however the module doesn't exist on my system and AA works fine without it. To be honest, I didn't really care until nvidia-kernel failed to compile, but now I think the solution is not to get nvidia-kernel to compile, but to get rid of it.

How can I go about removing the unwanted ( and it seems unneeded ) dependency?

Dan.

Try putting -nvidia in your USE flags, that should work and when you do the update put in --newuse

Also when ever I do a system update I always run

emerge --depclean

then

revdep-rebuild -p

if revdep is satisfactory I run it without -p

Keeps things tidy!

Thanks,

I must ask - what is it that revdep-rebuild does?

It's saved my butt numerous times. emerge --depclean will go through and clean up your system of uneed dependancies, but it'll sometimes break a few. What revdep-rebuild does look for broken dependancies and rebuild the broken pieces. You'll need to emerge the gentoolkit

Also I forgot to mention, in your make.conf file include

Code:
RSYNC_EXCLUDEFROM=/etc/portage/rsync_excludes


Then

Code:
touch /etc/portage/rsync_excludes


Then if any package wants to install and you don't want/need this will block it

Sorry bad choice of words, "block it" the excludes will actually "exclude the package from portage the next time you do an emerge --sync

Moved from Portage & Programming to Duplicate Threads in favour of GF8: Why is <y> getting pulled in when I emerge <x>?
