gentoo emerge


hello,
one question: i want to emerge a 'masked' package (eclipse-SDK to name it) but it doesn't emerge because it is 'masked'. as far as i've understood 'masked' packages are not yet fully tested and could be unstable. how can i install such a package anyway, or where can i edit this 'masks'?

thanks
tom

There is a file containing the names of the masked packages:
/usr/portage/profiles/package.mask
Remove any packages you wan't to unmask from that file using your favorite text editor.

[root@linux root]$ ACCEPT_KEYWORDS=~x86 emerge packagename
