Hi,

Please refer an earlier post https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-1083656-highlight-.html. I was able to install all packages for the profile I had selected after using the --exclude=openssl option alaong with emerge --ask --deep --newuse --with-bdeps=y @world. But I don't know what the exclude option really does. Would this command have build packages factoring in the dependencies of openssl 1.0.2 or without it. Essentially what I am seeking to know is what is the right way to use a downgraded package, specifically openssl 1.0.2 and also the correct way to upgrade the entire system without upgrading the specific package.

Thanks
Rejoy

Well, exclude option does as the name infers, in that portage will exclude openssl from the output. For example, I often use exclude when I do depclean to exclude gentoo-sources, so depclean will not clean any versions of that package.
As far as beyond that, portage will go by the current version of openssl installed for dependency resolution. For the few packages that depend on 1.0.2, it will either also exclude or throw an error (more likely if the other package is a dependency for something else).

Rejoy ... that sounds as if you still have an unmask for >=dev-libs/openssl-1.1.0h-r2 because the available packages are both 1.0.2o. Anyhow, the advice/lesson here should be don't use '--autounmask-write' ... particularly when lacking the experience of how to deal with the issues it will inevitably lead to.

best .... khay

No openssl-1.0.2 isn't a declassed package, it's correct version for stable or unstable gentoo.
openssl-1.1.0 is hard masked and should not be installed in a gentoo system (for now because has ABI chenged and may package fails to build).
Now thare is some case how portage want to install openssl-1.1.0 because --autounmask options is enabled, in this cases you can simply disable this option (--autounmask n)
