I decided to do revdep-rebuild. It chugged along for a long time, gave me a very long list of packages to rebuild, but then stopped with the message that one of the packages it wanted to rebuild was masked. I unmerged that package and started again. Same thing with a different package. I was thinking, wouldn't it make my life easier if I could get a list of all the installed packages that are now masked that I can either update or uninstall. But I couldn't figure out how to do it.

It seems that "masked" should be a local option for equery list, but it's not there. So, I thought I could do equery list all files and then just grep for the [M ]. Doesn't work. Redirect output from equery list to a file and then search for the [M ]? Doesn't work. It seems that the screen output for equery and the actual output are different. The actual output consists only of package names.

Anyone have any ideas more clever than mine?[/code]

Invoke equery with the -N/--no-pipe option so equery does not detect output redirection. Then your script will work.
Code:
andit@rockchuck ~ $ equery l bash
[ Searching for package 'bash' in all categories among: ]
 * installed packages
[I--] [  ] app-shells/bash-4.0_p35 (0)

bandit@rockchuck ~ $ equery l bash | more
 * installed packages
app-shells/bash-4.0_p35

bandit@rockchuck ~ $ equery -N l bash | more
[ Searching for package 'bash' in all categories among: ]
 * installed packages
[I--] [  ] app-shells/bash-4.0_p35 (0)

Or, install app-portage/eix:
Code:
bandit@rockchuck ~ $ eix -c --installed-masked
[D] net-libs/libsoup (2.2.105-r2(2.2)@12/23/2008 2.26.3-r3(2.4)@12/23/2009 -> 2.26.3-r3(2.4)): An HTTP library implementation in C
[D] x11-apps/ttmkfdir (3.0.9-r3@12/22/2008 -> ??): A utility to create a fonts.scale file from a set of TrueType fonts
Found 2 matches.
