Gentoo: libsdl gone mad? Nope.

If you’ve emerge sync’ed today and the output of an ’emerge -puD world’ on your CLI-only box looks similar to mine..

o2 media-libs # emerge -pu lib-compat

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

Calculating dependencies …done!
[ebuild N ] media-libs/audiofile-0.2.6-r1
[ebuild N ] media-sound/alsa-headers-1.0.8
[ebuild N ] media-libs/alsa-lib-1.0.8
[ebuild N ] x11-base/xorg-x11-6.8.2-r1
[ebuild N ] sys-apps/utempter-0.5.5.5-r1
[ebuild N ] x11-terms/xterm-200-r1
[ebuild N ] media-libs/lcms-1.13-r1
[ebuild N ] media-libs/libmng-1.0.4
[ebuild N ] x11-libs/qt-3.3.4-r3
[ebuild N ] kde-base/kde-env-3-r3
[ebuild N ] kde-base/arts-1.3.2-r1
[ebuild N ] media-libs/libsdl-1.2.8-r1
[ebuild N ] sys-libs/lib-compat-1.4

..you might want to adjust your USE flag settings to anticipate the recent soft dependency changes in libsdl. Add “-arts” (KDE sound server, not needed on a headless server) to your USE flags in /etc/make.conf and the output will look like

o2 media-libs # emerge -puD lib-compat

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

Calculating dependencies …done!
[ebuild N ] media-libs/audiofile-0.2.6-r1
[ebuild N ] media-sound/alsa-headers-1.0.8
[ebuild N ] media-libs/alsa-lib-1.0.8
[ebuild N ] media-libs/libsdl-1.2.8-r1
[ebuild N ] sys-libs/lib-compat-1.4

Much better, isn’t it? ;) Of course, if you don’t like alsa, you can opt it out too.
