Gentoo – update dev-libs/icu on a desktop box with KDE GUI and many masked packages

No, we are not going to answer why someone will use Gentoo for Desktop, but well such human beings still exist and we have one piece of snippet the updating old dev-libs/icu packet, because KDE Platform and new version of Chromium depend on a new version >=dev-libs/icu-59.
The main reason to include this update here is show how to deal with the dependency hell in Gentoo – multiple blocked packages and some old and deprecated packages, but still installed.

To summarize it up at the beginning how we did it

and then you’ll see what are the steps we took to resolve the conflicts and masked packages:

  • Use verbose,verbose-conflicts and backtrack with emerge
  • Remove only big GUI packages, which have really big dependency graph like office suites or development IDEs
  • Remove obsolete packages – you do not need them, they can just make problems when updating, because emerge will take into consideration their requirements and dependencies and your update could be impossible!
  • Include explicitly packages, which block our updates in the emerge line!
  • use tools like “equery” (part of app-portage/gentoolkit) for checking dependencies and/or which packages depend on the queried package. You can use it with specific version for the package. “qlist” (part of app-portage/portage-utils) also is a handful tool.
  • Sometimes when updating a group or a package with big dependency graph it is much easier to drop the -“u” update argument and to rebuild some packages with the updates.

More on the subject of update tips here: Gentoo update tips when updating packages with blocks and masked files

Our real world example

The most help in such situations we have with:

emerge -u --verbose --verbose-conflicts --backtrack=200000 <packages>

You’ll get a full picture of the update and the dependencies.

So we start with

root@srv ~ # emerge -vu icu

 * IMPORTANT: 1 news items need reading for repository 'dlang'.
 * IMPORTANT: 19 news items need reading for repository 'gentoo'.
 * Use eselect news read to view new items.


 * IMPORTANT: 3 config files in '/etc/portage' need updating.
 * See the CONFIGURATION FILES and CONFIGURATION FILES UPDATE TOOLS
 * sections of the emerge man page to learn how to update config files.

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

!!! The slot conflict(s) shown above involve package(s) which may need to
!!! be rebuilt in order to solve the conflict(s). However, the following
!!! package(s) cannot be rebuilt for the reason(s) shown:

  (app-office/libreoffice-bin-5.4.2.2:0/0::gentoo, installed): ebuild is masked or unavailable

It may be possible to solve this problem by using package.mask to
prevent one of those packages from being selected. However, it is also
possible that conflicting dependencies exist such that they are
impossible to satisfy simultaneously.  If such a conflict exists in
the dependencies of two different packages, then those packages can
not be installed simultaneously.

For more information, see MASKED PACKAGES section in the emerge man
page or refer to the Gentoo Handbook.

So no blocks, but multiple packages require older version – 0.58 , which could be resolved with recompilation!
Here are some examples:

    dev-libs/icu:0/58.2= required by (media-libs/libcdr-0.1.4:0/0::gentoo, installed)
                ^^^^^^^^                                                                                                 
    dev-libs/icu:0/58.2 required by (app-office/libreoffice-bin-5.4.2.2:0/0::gentoo, installed)

This package needs to be explicitly recompiled with the new version, because the current installed version needs 0.58.2 and no other. Probably explicitly update or explicitly recompilation is the solution and we are going to test it – just include the name of the package in the line with the emerge!
The emerge also tells us to include:

–verbose –verbose-conflicts

, because there are more conflicts not shown here!
The third and last important thing is this

!!! The slot conflict(s) shown above involve package(s) which may need to
!!! be rebuilt in order to solve the conflict(s). However, the following
!!! package(s) cannot be rebuilt for the reason(s) shown:

  (app-office/libreoffice-bin-5.4.2.2:0/0::gentoo, installed): ebuild is masked or unavailable
  (games-simulation/openttd-1.8.0_rc1:0/0::gentoo, installed): ebuild is masked or unavailable
  (net-libs/webkit-gtk-2.16.6:4/37::gentoo, installed): ebuild is masked or unavailable
  (net-libs/webkit-gtk-2.4.11-r200:2/2::gentoo, installed): ebuild is masked or unavailable
  (net-libs/webkit-gtk-2.4.11-r1:3/25::gentoo, installed): ebuild is masked or unavailable
  (net-libs/nodejs-8.4.0:0/0::gentoo, installed): ebuild is masked or unavailable

Probably this means some of these packages are obsolate and it might be safe to clean (remove) them from our system – we must check everyone of them!
It appeared all of the mentioned packages were removed and even some of the slots, too – at the time of the update net-libs/webkit-gtk:4 existed and all other “net-libs/webkit-gtk-2.4.11-r200:2/2” and “net-libs/webkit-gtk-2.4.11-r1:3/25” were removed and no packages depended on them:
You could check this with

root@srv ~ # equery d =net-libs/webkit-gtk-2.4.11-r1
 * These packages depend on net-libs/webkit-gtk-2.4.11-r1:
app-editors/emacs-vcs-27.0.50_pre20180731 (xwidgets ? net-libs/webkit-gtk:4)
gnome-extra/sushi-3.24.0 (net-libs/webkit-gtk:4[introspection])
net-libs/libproxy-0.4.13-r2 (webkit ? net-libs/webkit-gtk:4)
x11-libs/wxGTK-3.0.4-r300 (webkit ? net-libs/webkit-gtk:4)

As you can see all depends on “net-libs/webkit-gtk:4”, so you can remove “net-libs/webkit-gtk-2.4.11-r200:2/2” and “net-libs/webkit-gtk-2.4.11-r1:3/25”.
There were new versions for app-office/libreoffice-bin, games-simulation/openttd and net-libs/nodejs.
To remove the unneeded packets we can execute:

emerge -Cv =net-libs/webkit-gtk-2.4.11-r1 =net-libs/webkit-gtk-2.4.11-r1 =net-libs/webkit-gtk-2.4.11-r200

And last the packet app-office/libreoffice-bin has an update, but the problem with this package is it has a huge dependency graph and it is not critical for the system. As you know it is word processing suite and we can install it at later stage again after updating our system, the dependency graph could be seen with:

root@srv ~ $ equery g app-office/libreoffice-bin

[ app-office/libreoffice-bin-6.0.3.2 stats: packages (96), max depth (1) ]

So we decided to remove the app-office/libreoffice-bin for time of the update. Sometime it is better to remove a package temporarily and after an update to install (build) it again – in most cases these are GUI packages like big office suites, browsers and so on – the system could live without them during the update!

root@srv ~ # emerge -Cv app-office/libreoffice-bin

And now we are ready to get a shot with our emerge:

  • Remove the “-u” – just update from emerge. As you can see we have many packages rebuilds so probably it is a good idea not to complicate the update process with only update packages, just let the emerge compile everything if needed
  • Include explicitly every library shown in the list of packages, which requires older ICU.
  • Include “–verbose –verbose-conflicts –backtrack=200000” to have a detail and more informative emerge output.

And here is our best shot and as you can see it worked! It reported 105 packages to build and it immediately began with the first one, because the emerge program had resolved all the dependencies and knew to do.

root@srv ~ # emerge --verbose --verbose-conflicts --backtrack=200000 icu $(qlist -IC |grep dev-qt) dev-libs/libical net-libs/nodejs net-libs/webkit-gtk kde-frameworks/kglobalaccel media-libs/libvisio app-text/libmspub sys-fs/xfsprogs app-accessibility/brltty dev-db/sqlite app-text/libebook mail-mta/postfix media-libs/libcdr dev-libs/icu-layoutex media-libs/raptor

 * IMPORTANT: 1 news items need reading for repository 'dlang'.
 * IMPORTANT: 19 news items need reading for repository 'gentoo'.
 * Use eselect news read to view new items.


 * IMPORTANT: 3 config files in '/etc/portage' need updating.
 * See the CONFIGURATION FILES and CONFIGURATION FILES UPDATE TOOLS
 * sections of the emerge man page to learn how to update config files.

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

Calculating dependencies... done!

And everything compiled smoothly without any error. So we updated our “dev-libs/icu” to 60.2! Then we installed libreoffice-bin again with just:

emerge -v libreoffice-bin

and no dependency conflicts.

One thought on “Gentoo – update dev-libs/icu on a desktop box with KDE GUI and many masked packages”
