I am starting with Gentoo again, this time installing using the alternative method more specific the Knoppix method, but I did from my running Debian Lenny using the chroot method, well I now have my operating system working, but when I tried to install Gnome
I got an error
Error circular dependencies
After googling, and reading my configuration files I found that the problem was in my
/etc/make.conf file where my USE variable were like this:
USE="-qt3 -qt4 -arts -kde dbus hal avahi gnome gtk"
So I took out the gtk and gnome, and installed the gtk package.
Which was the package giving the error of circular dependencies… yes I was telling gentoo to install a package with gtk support without having gtk, and when it tries to install gtk+, it tried to install it, with gtk support, hope this helps anybody someday.
