In this section, we describe how to install software on Gentoo and what Gentoo's Portage and Portage tree are.This chapter is very Gentoo-specific - in fact, if you're not using Gentoo or a Gentoo-derived Linux distribution, you'll find most of this chapter entertaining yet not usable.The software that is responsible for managing installed software is called a package manager.It is the interface to the user to install and uninstall software, upgrade the system, search through the available software and help with the configuration of the various software titles.I can't get the test sound to play from the settings window, but Phonon is not whining about broken sound cards when I start up.
I can get sound with mplayer ( but not smplayer ) Firefox and Skype but nothing else.
However, it is also possible that conflicting dependencies exist such that they are impossible to satisfy simultaneously. Current is 16.08.3 With a world update portage will simply update them to current, assuming you have KDE installed because you want it that is.
If such a conflict exists in the dependencies of two different packages, then those packages can not be installed simultaneously. Your problem is that the box seems to have not been updated in a long while. The solution is always the copious use of patience and understanding.
