Hello All

I'm seeing the following message after emerge...

Code:
- sys-devel/gcc-4.4.7::gentoo (masked by: package.mask)
/usr/portage/profiles/package.mask:
# MichaŠGórny <mgorny@gentoo.org>, Andreas K. Hüttel <dilfridge@gentoo.org>,
# Matthias Maier <tamiko@gentoo.org> (21 May 2017)
# These old versions of toolchain packages (binutils, gcc, glibc) are no
# longer officially supported and are not suitable for general use. Using
# these packages can result in build failures (and possible breakage) for
# many packages, and may leave your system vulnerable to known security
# exploits.
# If you still use one of these old toolchain packages, please upgrade (and
# switch the compiler / the binutils) ASAP. If you need them for a specific
# (isolated) use case, feel free to unmask them on your system.
# (updated 27 Dec 2017 with gcc < 5.4)

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


What's the best procedure on how to clean this up? When I run gcc-config -l, it shows x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-6.4.0 as the selected gcc. Do I just need to remove old versions of gcc? And if so, what's the best procedure to avoid hosing the system?

Thanks!
hanji

like this:

1/ when you are not sure about something, save it
Code:
quickpkg gcc


2/ you could also check all is ok, making sure the right gcc is in use (better get 6.4.0 answer there)
Code:
gcc --version


3/ and remove it (always run with -p or -a)
Code:
emerge -Ca gcc-4.4.7

Very small typo corrected here. Noted the added '=':
Code:
emerge -Ca =gcc-4.4.7

hihi actually not, the = on slotted packages is not need (lol try)

edit: sorry my bad, it's not limit to slotted :D
Code:
>emerge -Ca vlc
 media-video/vlc
    selected: 2.2.8-r1
>emerge -Ca vlc-2.2.8-r1
 media-video/vlc
    selected: 2.2.8-r1


edit: i forget to say, do not ask me how i know that or why it does that, all i know is that =;>;< are need when emerging a package, but not when removing it.

Sonofagun. 8O Why would that work!? It's utterly non-orthogonal. In my opinion, it shouldn't work. I think I'll contend that it's bad form to omit the comparison operator.

In any case, thanks for the education.

Fantastic. That cleared things up.

Thanks!
