Hello,

After my latest 'emerge --sync', if I do an 'emerge -auDN world', emerge suddenly wants to install xorg-x11 and a bunch of other new ebuilds:
Code:

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

Calculating world dependencies ...done!
[ebuild  N    ] x11-apps/ttmkfdir-3.0.9-r3 
[ebuild  N    ] x11-base/opengl-update-2.2.1 
[ebuild  N    ] media-libs/fontconfig-2.2.3 
[ebuild  N    ] x11-base/xorg-x11-6.8.2-r6 
[ebuild  N    ] virtual/x11-6.8 
[ebuild  N    ] app-arch/rpm2targz-9.0-r3 
[ebuild  N    ] sys-apps/utempter-0.5.5.6 
[ebuild  N    ] x11-terms/xterm-204 
[ebuild  N    ] x11-libs/openmotif-2.2.3-r3 
[ebuild  N    ] app-text/xpdf-3.01-r3 
[ebuild     U ] net-print/cups-1.1.23-r4 [1.1.23-r1]

This happens even though I've always had "-X" in my use flags, since I don't want an X11 system.

'equery depends x11' in fact reveals that tetex depends on x11:
Code:

equery depends x11       
[ Searching for packages depending on x11... ]
app-text/tetex-2.0.2-r5
media-libs/t1lib-5.0.2

This is strange since I've set "-X" globally, which is confirmed:
Code:

emerge -pv tetex

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

Calculating dependencies ...done!
[ebuild   R   ] app-text/tetex-2.0.2-r5  -X -doc 85,040 kB

Are there any known solutions to this problem?

Thanks

I think this is because of a use flag in xpdf. Try setting -motif in your use flags as well as -X.

If you want a headless system, try adding x11-base/xorg-x11 to your /etc/portage/package.mask file - I've done this on servers because it tends to give a better error message when something trys to pull in X.

Code:
echo x11-base/xorg-x11 >> /etc/portage/package.mask
