why is this blocking? i'm interested in learning how i can find out why packages are blocking other packages. my questions about this example below are, what is requiring xpdf? i've just unmerged it, but something in the list is requiring it. why are there conflicts with poppler and xpdf? can't they be friends? this must be some new restriction on poppler and xpdf as i previously had both installed.

how do i determine what package in this list requires another package? is there a way to show what the parent package(s) are?

Code:

expresso mark # emerge -upDv world

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

I too had this problem but it's gone now. There are already threads about this.
