PermaLink gdm hangs after dbus update to 1.0.201/22/2007 11:43 AM
After today's emerge --sync I found dbus to be updated to sys-apps/dbus-1.0.2, but being blocked by sys-apps/dbus-0.62-r2. Unmerging the current dbus ebuild with emerge -C and emerging the most current dbus ebuild resulted in a gdm hang at startup, showing a blank X11 screen and the clock-cursor, but no login...

Running revdep-rebuild solved the issue, by showing up missing dependencies for an old in many ebuilds, thus reemerging them afterwards. So be sure to have some time for recompiling a bunch of ebuilds ...
