Remove Gnome From Gentoo Completely

It has been a year since I didn’t use gnome! The new Gnome3 disappointed me too much. So I use LXDE as my desktop, which is more simple, more confortable to me. But for some reasons, Gnome still get inside in my system.

Today, When I attempt to upgrade all my installed packages to latest, the package “systemd” drives me crazy. It conflicts with udev, which is a very basic packages in gentoo. Since I have not been ready to use systemd, all packages will be broken without udev installed correctlly. I have used many ways to solve the issue, e.g. mask udev and systemd temporarily, however, all methods I have tried failed.

As above metioned, I don’t need systemd at all actually, so why I need to install it when upgrade my system. After some research, I find it is the gnome’s upgrade which requires systemd.

BS, now I find the reason, the fix is very easy.

// Add USE="-gnome" in /etc/make.conf file 
// Set system profile through "eselect profile set", i.e. dont select gnome profile
emerge -C $(grep gnome /var/lib/portage/world) # Delete all packages belong to gnome
emerge -DuNav world # Rebuild the system
emerge -Da --depclean # Clean up system
revdep-rebuild -i # Check whether something is missing

That’s all!

      我公司还用 gentoo, 运行时环境还是linux, 只不过编译前环境变为 mac 而已
