Hello all! :)


I've been using gentoo amd64 now for a few days and I'd like to install ax25 but it says it's masked. I've typed man emerge and it says something about /etc/portage/package.key-words but I'm not sure what it wants from me.

Any help kindly appericiated! :)

Best regards
Luka :)

to emerge masked packages you can either type
Code:
ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~amd64" emerge <package>

or put the line
Code:
ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~amd64"
in /etc/make.conf

Neither of which are the recomended approuch. The first will be forgotten about when you next emerge your world. The second will take your entire system into the unstable branch.

Moved from Portage & Programming to Duplicate Threads.

See the FAQ that UncleOwen posted.
