WARNNING USE MASKED FILES WILL MAKE YOUR SYSTEM UNSTABLE



Well folks let see, this problem is a real anoying problem hehehe.

Get an masked file to emerge like x11-base/xorg-x11-7.1, if you try to emerge this file will be masked so how to unmask.

Search for this file:
Code:
# ls -l /etc/portage/package.keywords



if this file isn't their create them:

Code:
# touch package.keywords


and put the list of maksed files on this file, then try to emerge the masked file again

Code:
# emerge -av =x11-base/x11-xorg-7.1 


and you will see the mask has fall 8O

references the emerge at this post https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-466353-highlight-i915.html

If you want this to be a how-to, you need to proofread it.

Also, you don't need that --verbose in that last emerge statement; -av == --ask --verbose

Thanks, this is FAQ material, and as such, there already is one: GF5: What are masked packages?
