Hi! I have this Gentoo box that has been running for a long time and I finally decided to run updates on it. After it updated the mailx package it is unable to uninstall the old one. Now no matter what I install, at the end it tries to uninstall mailx and fails. Any ideas how I can stop this annoying error?

Moved from Portage & Programming to Duplicate Threads in favour of the FAQ GF19: Emerge fails to unmerge a package.
