I've been dutifully following the Gentoo PPC installation instructions, but when I try to install the gentoo-sources, it tells me that all are masked (see below). Anyone know what I should do next?

thanks for any help,
Darrell

(chroot) livecd / # emerge gentoo-sources
*
* The FEATURES=digest setting can prevent corruption from being noticed.
* The `repoman manifest` command is the preferred way to generate
* manifests and it is capable of doing an entire repository or category at
* once.

Calculating dependencies... done!

!!! All ebuilds that could satisfy "gentoo-sources" have been masked.
!!! One of the following masked packages is required to complete your request:
- sys-kernel/gentoo-sources-2.6.37 (masked by: ~ppc64 keyword)
- sys-kernel/gentoo-sources-2.6.36-r6 (masked by: ~ppc64 keyword)
- sys-kernel/gentoo-sources-2.6.36-r5 (masked by: ~ppc64 keyword)
- sys-kernel/gentoo-sources-2.6.36-r4 (masked by: ~ppc64 keyword)
- sys-kernel/gentoo-sources-2.6.36-r2 (masked by: package.mask, ~ppc64 keyword)
/usr/portage/profiles/package.mask:
# Mike Pagano <mpagano@gentoo.org> (20 Nov 2010)
# Mask this version of gentoo-sources while we test
# the effectiveness of the TTY-based group scheduling
# patch.

- sys-kernel/gentoo-sources-2.6.35-r15 (masked by: ~ppc64 keyword)
- sys-kernel/gentoo-sources-2.6.35-r14 (masked by: ~ppc64 keyword)
- sys-kernel/gentoo-sources-2.6.35-r13 (masked by: ~ppc64 keyword)
- sys-kernel/gentoo-sources-2.6.35-r12 (masked by: ~ppc64 keyword)
- sys-kernel/gentoo-sources-2.6.32-r24 (masked by: ~ppc64 keyword)
- sys-kernel/gentoo-sources-2.6.32-r23 (masked by: ~ppc64 keyword)
- sys-kernel/gentoo-sources-2.6.32-r22 (masked by: ~ppc64 keyword)
- sys-kernel/gentoo-sources-2.6.32-r21 (masked by: ~ppc64 keyword)
- sys-kernel/gentoo-sources-2.6.32-r20 (masked by: ~ppc64 keyword)
- sys-kernel/gentoo-sources-2.6.16-r13 (masked by: ~ppc64 keyword)

For more information, see the MASKED PACKAGES section in the emerge
man page or refer to the Gentoo Handbook.

Couple of options:
* unmask the gentoo source you want (easy to google, also try to google autounmask), wouldn't recommend 2.6.36-r2 though see http://packages.gentoo.org/category/sys-kernel
* get another kernel package sys-kernel/vanilla-sources has 2 stable releases it seems (look it up at the above link)

Also if you're daring enough you can put the following in /etc/make.conf:
Code:
ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~ppc64"


This will unmask all the packages that were mask for ppc. I did the same but for amd64 and never had any troubles, but I might be lucky.
Masked packages are not perse bug driven, most of them are not well enough tested (not enough user who gave feedback at http://bugs.gentoo.org/) to be considered as "stable". Google it if you want to read more about it.

good luck

Thanks very much!

The last time I used gentoo was with a dec alpha, so the refresher hints are much appreciated...

I would be grateful if you could test any of:

  • sys-kernel/gentoo-sources-2.6.36-r5
  • sys-kernel/gentoo-sources-2.6.32-r24
  • sys-kernel/vanilla-sources-2.6.36.2
  • sys-kernel/vanilla-sources-2.6.32.27
These are candidates for stables.
Cheers,
Kacper Kowalik
