Dear Sirs and Ladies:
after syncronized and updated , my portage and entropy (Sabayon 3.5 DVD Version ) installers, both works very well...
But, sometimes, when i try the emerge command for install something (special large packages as gnome)
i received a message , but the emerging works well. This message is exibited prior to the emerging process (no depends from the package to be emerged)
but seems to no interfere in it....
Seems to me that are only warnings about some problematic packages, that may be replaced or removed, but...
The message is:!!! The following installed packages are masked:
- sys-auth/pam_ssh_agent-0.2-r1 (masked by: package.mask)
# Diego Pettenò <email@example.com> (20 Jul 2008)
# Masked pending removal on August 20th, last release in 2004.
# Use sys-auth/pam_ssh as a replacement.
- dev-util/cogito-0.18.2 (masked by: package.mask)
# Fernando J. Pereda <firstname.lastname@example.org> (07 Jun 2008)
# Using the git porcelain is recommended over cogito.
# gitweb is installed by the git ebuild
- kde-base/kdesu-4.0.1 (masked by: package.mask)
# Ingmar Vanhassel <email@example.com> (16 Jan 2008)
# Mask KDE 4.0.x for testing. This release of KDE 4 will not be unmasked.
# This is still not intended for mainstream so DO NOT KEYWORD IT without
# talking to the KDE herd first.

- net-proxy/privoxy-3.0.8 (masked by: package.mask)
