as easy as that eh?
- Code: Select all
These are the packages that would be merged, in order:
Calculating world dependencies -
!!! All ebuilds that could satisfy ">=app-text/poppler-bindings-0.5.91" have been masked.
!!! One of the following masked packages is required to complete your request:
- app-text/poppler-bindings-0.5.91 (masked by: package.mask)
# Stefan Schweizer <email@example.com> (31 May 2007)
# release candidate
For more information, see MASKED PACKAGES section in the emerge man page or
refer to the Gentoo Handbook.
(dependency required by "app-text/evince-0.9.3" [ebuild])
!!! Problem resolving dependencies for app-text/evince
!!! Depgraph creation failed.
I have tried adding
to the .keywords file
I have tried
emerge -C app-text/evince
I see it unmerge but this changes nothing
even after a revdep rebuild , no change
ok ... I have always had problems with this damn package
off and on for at least the last year
If portage says: "masked by: missing keyword" while emerging, it means that the packages isn't available for your architecture yet, i.e. you are running x86_64 and the package has for instance "x86" keyword only. If you really need that package, then you can try: echo "category/package x86 ~x86" >> /etc/portage/package.keywords to override it for package in a category. (Note: I've used the unstable "~x86" since the rest of Sabayon is running with unstable keywords anyway). As Gentoo is source based there's good chance of package compiling and working without modifications.
More info here: http://gentoo-wiki.com/Masked
This file is used to run unstable packages on stable systems or ebuilds that haven't been tested on your platform. This file isn't that important to Sabayon users, but gentoo-wiki.com has more information if you are interested.
ok sorry I missed that bit..
but what to do with (masked by: package.mask)
