I've recently upgraded to X.org 7, but when I emerge -uavDN world, it tries to go back to xorg-x11-6.8.2. And if I hard mask <=x11-base/xorg-x11-7.0, then it complains that 6.8.2 is masked. Is there any way I can make it forget all about xorg 6.8?

Code:
# emerge -Duptv world

These are the packages that would be merged, in reverse order:

Calculating world dependencies... done!
[blocks B     ] <=x11-base/xorg-x11-6.9 (is blocking x11-apps/xvinfo-1.0.1)
[blocks B     ] <=x11-base/xorg-x11-6.9 (is blocking x11-apps/xev-1.0.1)
[blocks B     ] <=x11-base/xorg-x11-6.9 (is blocking x11-apps/xprop-1.0.1)
[blocks B     ] x11-libs/libXft (is blocking x11-base/xorg-x11-6.8.2-r6)
[nomerge      ] x11-apps/xvinfo-1.0.1  USE="-debug"
[nomerge      ] x11-apps/xev-1.0.1  USE="-debug"
[nomerge      ] x11-apps/xprop-1.0.1  USE="-debug"
[nomerge      ] media-video/nvidia-settings-1.0.6629
[nomerge      ]  virtual/x11-6.8
[ebuild     UD]   x11-base/xorg-x11-6.8.2-r6 [7.0-r1]


It doesn't look like anything's dependant on xorg 6.8... :(

have you removed the old x11 virtual from 6.8?
Code:
emerge -C virtual-x11/x11-6.8*

Thank you. :)

And that didn't quite solve it, either, so I did a bit of digging and figured out that (duh!) I had to emerge virtual/x11-7.0-r1! And now it's working beautifully. Thanks again.

Moved from Portage & Programming to Duplicate Threads in favour of xorg-x11-6.9 -> xorg-x11-7.0-r1 everything blocked.
