gentoo, emerge problem


I tried to emerge gnotepad+

it said it was masked use emerge gnotepad+-1.3.3 (masked by ~keyword)

so I try the -1.3.3 it told me ~specific key requires an operator (package path and name) (try adding an '=')"

what does that mean?

Ok maybe I was being to mean. . .

It's masked because it is not fully tested yet.

To install masked packages you need to add this to the command:

# ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~x86" emerge -p foo

That will do it for you. . .

PS, if you have no clue what the -p switch does. . . RTFM.

unfortunetaly the mnaual does not have a way to search for a specific thing like this, and after reading through it the past 2 days installing this thing I do not recall seeing it, I am on the emerge handbook page now and a search of text reveals nothing about this, and I have already read the page without any memory of such a thing.

ok, I read the mnual, I check the /usr/portage/profiles/package.mask file the gnotepad+ is not listed in it according to my own looking and accoridng to a search, also there is no ARCH listen in my error so I am sure it is not that..

on another note I had to create the /etc/portage directory to make the package.unmask file

I added =apps-editor/gnotepad+ following the format as I understood it, I still get the same message, any ideas?

I decided not to worry about it for now, if anyone has a siolution I would like to learn how to fix this kind of thing, but for now I simply downloaded the source fromt he homepage and compiled it myself.

Hold on . . . you did this EXACT line?

Common, don't piss away my time. . .

Code:
ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~x86" emerge -p gnotepad+
COPY and Paste this right into your command line, because you seem to have trouble typing it in yourself.



EDIT: That was just way to funny. . . it made my day.
