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....

The message is:

!!! The following installed packages are masked:
- sys-auth/pam_ssh_agent-0.2-r1 (masked by: package.mask)
/usr/portage/profiles/package.mask:
# Diego Pettenò <[email protected]> (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)
/usr/portage/profiles/package.mask:
# Fernando J. Pereda <[email protected]> (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)
/usr/portage/profiles/package.mask:
# Ingmar Vanhassel <[email protected]> (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.
# KDE 4 guide: http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/desktop/kde/kde4.xml

- net-proxy/privoxy-3.0.8 (masked by: package.mask)
/usr/portage/profiles/package.mask:
# Alin Năstac <[email protected]> (24 Jul 2008)
# This version stops responding after awhile (#229049).

For more information, see the MASKED PACKAGES section in the emerge
man page or refer to the Gentoo Handbook.

Seems to me that are only warnings about some problematic packages, that may be replaced or removed, but...

as it tells you:
For more information, see the MASKED PACKAGES section in the emerge
man page or refer to the Gentoo Handbook.

yes do, i read,
When i really want the file, i may unmask,
copyin to unmask. packages,
but in these cases, seems to be better use the replacements suggested!
No problem... thanks.!

you should find out why things are masked - there is usually a reason why, to prevent breakages you don't want.

appeares in many comps, to many people... afetr Kuroo was marked for removal ( disccontinued), i sse that
are the general remarks about Cogito and other packages, and not specific of my system.
Portage general remarks,only..
