Since I read about kde removing the semantic-desktop flag I'd like to mask all things 4.11 to stop it being updated in the future when I run my daily emerge -uavDN world.
Can this be done with a single line in package.mask or would I have to do each package individually?
would this work?:
Code:
=kde-base/*-4.11.0


EDIT: wow. over 30 views and not so much as a yes or no answer.

Quick answer: that will not work

Long answer: package.mask does not respect wildcards with version numbers. You could mask kde using kde-base/* but what you have will not work. You could used eix to generate a list, but I don't have time to figure out the proper command at the moment.
