Hello friends,
I need help with following problem. I was installing Xorg-server ( in VMware player) but I got this error message>

The following USE changes are necessary to procced:
(see "package.use" in the portage(5) man page for more details)

# required by x-11-drivers/x86-video-vmware-13.0.1
# required by x-11 base/xorg-drivers-1.14[video_cards_vmware]
# required by x-11 base/xorg server -1.14.3-r2[xorg]
# required by x-11 drivers/xf86-video-glint-1.2.8-r1

=media-libs/mesa- 9.1.6 xa

# required by x-11-drivers/x86-video-vmware-13.0.1
# required by x-11 base/xorg-drivers-1.14[video_cards_vmware]
# required by x-11 base/xorg server -1.14.3-r2[xorg]
# required by x-11 drivers/xf86-video-glint-1.2.8-r1

=x11-libs/libdrm-2.4.46 libkms

Use -- autounmask-write to write changes to config files (honoring CONFIG_PROTECT).Carefully examine
the list of proposed changes, paying special attention to mask or keyword changes that may expose experimental
or unstable packages.

Any idea what should I do?


Thanks all in advance.

It's telling you that it needs a few packages with some extra USE flags. --autounmask-write will write the configuration for you, I think, I never tried it myself.

Basically, you have to append these lines:
Code:

=media-libs/mesa- 9.1.6 xa
=x11-libs/libdrm-2.4.46 libkms


To /etc/portage/package.use (or the corresponding directory, if you are cross compiling, which you probably aren't).

This might be extremely helpful if you plan to use Gentoo a lot:
Code:

man portage


It will enable you to understand masking/unmasking, USE flags, where things are, etc.. It's a must read.

Gabriel is right, append --autounmask-write to your emerge command and verify the changes with #dispatch-conf.
