Hi !
( I am an Newbie :D )
I want to emerge xfree to my ULTRA10 machine. But when I start the emerge I get the message that all ebuilds are masked. So now what to do ?

Thanks.

Sparc does not support xfree, nor will any architecture in the near future, if I understand policy correctly.

What you do is
Code:

emerge xorg-x11


(xorg-x11 is the successor to X11R6, and the biggest difference between it and xfree, so far as I can see,
is that it identifies itself as Xorg instead of as Xfree.)

Hope this helps.
Regards,[/code]
