Hi all,

I installed sun-jdk 16.0.27 a week or so ago using portage (emere -u world), then the licensed changed. Now Emerge -upv world complains as follows:

Quote:
!!! The following updates are masked by LICENSE changes:
- dev-java/sun-jdk-1.6.0.27::gentoo (masked by: Oracle-BCLA-JavaSE license(s))
A copy of the 'Oracle-BCLA-JavaSE' license is located at '/usr/portage/licenses/Oracle-BCLA-JavaSE'.



A few questions:
1) what happened?
2) How can one mask to get past this?

This doesn't appear to work:
dev-java/sun-jdk ~x86


thanks

What do you want to do? If you want to keep the package and accept the license, you can add this to your /etc/make.conf:

ACCEPT_LICENSE="Oracle-BCLA-JavaSE"

And it was Oracle who changed the license, not Larry.

Alternatively update or create file as below:
Code:
cat /etc/portage/package.license
#dev-java/sun-jdk dlj-1.1
dev-java/sun-jdk Oracle-BCLA-JavaSE
Thanks for your attention.
