Thanks Alan, after keywording: =dev-qt/qtopengl-4.8.6-r1 ~amd64 =dev-qt/qtscript-4.8.6-r1 ~amd64 =dev-qt/qtsql-4.8.6-r1 ~amd64 =dev-qt/qtsvg-4.8.6-r1 ~amd64 =dev-qt/qttest-4.8.6-r1 ~amd64 =dev-qt/qttranslations-4.8.6-r1 ~amd64 =dev-qt/qtwebkit-4.8.6-r1 ~amd64 =dev-qt/qtxmlpatterns-4.8.6-r1 ~amd64 and adding abi_x86_32 on many packages that emerge asked me to, I am now able to progress with 'emerge -a @preserved-rebuild'. -- Regards, Mick
