I'm sorry if there is an obvious fix for this problem and this is a stupid question, but it would appear that the python-fchksum package is masked. I apparently need it to emerge the new version of portage, which is required by the utility that allows me to unmask things. I get the following error when I try to emerge anything:
|These are the packages that I would merge, in order:
Calculating world dependencies |
!!! All ebuilds that could satisfy "dev-python/python-fchksum" have been masked.
!!! One of the following masked packages is required to complete your request:
- dev-python/python-fchksum-1.6.1-r1 (masked by: missing keyword)
- dev-python/python-fchksum-1.7.1 (masked by: ~ppc keyword)
For more information, see MASKED PACKAGES section in the emerge man page or
section 2.2 "Software Availability" in the Gentoo Handbook.
!!! (dependency required by "sys-apps/portage-2.0.51-r3" [ebuild])
!!! Problem with ebuild sys-apps/portage-2.0.51-r3
!!! Possibly a DEPEND/*DEPEND problem.
!!! Depgraph creation failed.
Is there another way to unmask this besides using the utility? Is this a bug I should submit? Do I have something from the Xcode tools missing (I installed the latest version of the BSD SDK, as well as the standard Xcode install)? Do I just need to start over? I followed the directions in the readme that came in the .dmg gentoo package.
Thanks in advance!
