I am trying to install gcc >= 1.0.4-r6 to instal oo 1.0. All ebuilds higher than that are blocked by package.mask. How do i get past this and most importantly is it smart. Should i unblock the highest ebuild available or the lovest needed to meet sys requirements for oo?

go into package.mask in /usr/portage/profiles using

Code:
nano /usr/portage/profiles/package.mask


comment out the line with the package you want to make available save the file and try again. (had to do this for gnome 2 beta 5)

Thx. I'll do that. What i'm worried about is is it safe to do w/ an app as important as gcc?

EDIT: I can't get it to work. I commented out every reference to gcc (even old ones) but it still doesn't work. THere isn't even a reference to gcc-3.1-r2 in package.mask.

Are you trying to use gcc 3.1? First, you have to use a different /etc/make.profile. Second, I wouldn't recommend using gcc 3.1 at this time. There are some, umm, "issues" with autoconf-2.53a, and other stuff, http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic.php?t=3122

If you want to, update you /etc/make.profile symlink to point to /usr/portage/profiles/default-1.0-gcc3.
Code:
rm /etc/make.profile
ln -sf /usr/portage/profiles/default-1.0-gcc3 /etc/make.profile


Oh yeah, and if it isn't something as big as your compiler that you want to change, try just using:
Code:
ebuild /usr/portage/category/app/ebuild-ver.ebuild merge

IMO, I would just hold off on GCC 3x until Gentoo 1.2 (which I believe uses it, if not 1.3 then)
