Howdie,

this morning I had to re-emerge kopete and found that one of the useflags show by emerge -av looked like that: (-jingle).
Now, I have set the +jingle flag in make.conf so I am curious to why it is disable here in the first place, and what do the ( ) mean?

from the emerge(1) manpage:
Code:
              Symbol   Location    Meaning
              --------------------------------------------------------------

              -        prefix      not enabled (either disabled or removed)
              *        suffix      transition to or from the enabled state
              %        suffix      newly added or removed
              ()       circumfix   forced, masked, or removed

from /usr/portage/profiles/base/package.use.mask:
Code:
# Mounir Lamouri <volkmar@gentoo.org> (21 Apr 2009)
# masking jingle because it's using an old ortp version
# which is blocking stabilization of new ones, bug 206047
=kde-base/kdenetwork-3* jingle
=kde-base/kopete-3* jingle

Ah, thank you. Would pay off ot read man pages, sorry.

About the flag: Does that mean that the version of kopete we have available right now comes -without- jingle support?

In all likelihood, it means that Jingle support in kopete has some issue that is expected to be fixed in the future, but kopete couldn't be stabilized with jingle support right now. The ebuild wasn't modified to remove the jingle USE flag because the developer believes that it will be useful in the future. Check the ebuild ChangeLog comments.
