I'm a former Gentoo Linux user who's switched to Mac, so I'm very familiar with Gentoo and Portage.

I've just installed Gentoo for OS X, and for some reason, almost every package I try to emerge is masked with the missing keyword.

I tried this for log4, junit, jdom, etc. I got the same problems for all of them. Following the instructions in the man pages, I looked at /usr/portage/profiles/package.mask, but I can't find those packages in the file.

I tried running this command:

ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~ppc" emerge log4j

but I just kept getting the same output.

Here's what happens when I try to run emerge -p

Code:

user$ sudo su
Password: **************
root# emerge -p log4j

These are the packages that I would merge, in order:

Calculating dependencies   
!!! All ebuilds that could satisfy "log4j" have been masked.
!!! One of the following masked packages is required to complete your request:
- dev-java/log4j-1.2.8-r1 (masked by: missing keyword)
- dev-java/log4j-1.2.8-r2 (masked by: missing keyword)
- dev-java/log4j-1.2.8 (masked by: missing keyword)
- dev-java/log4j-1.2.9 (masked by: missing keyword)

For more information, see MASKED PACKAGES section in the emerge man page or
section 2.2 "Software Availability" in the Gentoo Handbook.


Any ideas what I should do? So far, Fink has been much more reliable for me on OS X.[/code]

Code:
echo "~dev-java/log4j-1.2.9 -* ppc" >> /etc/portage/package.keywords

IIRC, Portage on OS X has its own arch keyword, ppc-macos. So you need to take moocha's suggestion and put ppc-macos instead.

I don't understand what the deal is here with the maskings. I'd like to emerge emacs with aqua support just for starters. Can anyone elighten me? Thanks

Code:

$ sudo emerge -vp emacs

These are the packages that I would merge, in order:

!!! All ebuilds that could satisfy "emacs" have been masked.
!!! One of the following masked packages is required to complete your request:
- app-editors/emacs-18.59 (masked by: missing keyword)
- app-editors/emacs-21.4 (masked by: missing keyword)
- app-editors/emacs-22.0.50_pre20050225 (masked by: -* keyword)

Could it be more explicit? Please, I understand lazyness, but not this staggering amount.

it looks like you're using the wrong keyword. I just installed emacs fine with ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~ppc-macos".

The emacs-22.0.50_pre20050225 package is specifically keyworded "~ppc-macos -*". But your emerge's output says that the emacs-22.0.50_pre20050225 package is "masked by -* keyword", which indicates that you have the wrong keywords in your /etc/make.conf

So, check your /etc/make.conf : ACCEPT_KEYWORDS should only be "ppc-macos" or "~ppc-macos" on an OSX system.

hope this works for you.

Many apologies for the duplicate thread. I was admittedly in a hurry :oops:

Thanks reddan! That indeed got it working. I guess wat I was confused about is that I'm used to seeing more details than "missing keyword" (I have been using gentoo on my x86 system for about a year).
