The following keyword changes are necessary to proceed net-print/cups
I have been able to solve similar problems to this one before, but I am stuck on this one. I am not sure what keyword changes I am being asked ot make. Here is the message:
k # emerge -av net-print/cups-bjnp These are the packages that would be merged, in order: Calculating dependencies... done! [ebuild N *] net-print/cups-bjnp-1.0 121 kB Total: 1 package (1 new), Size of downloads: 121 kB The following keyword changes are necessary to proceed: #required by net-print/cups-bjnp (argument) =net-print/cups-bjnp-1.0 ** NOTE: The --autounmask-keep-masks option will prevent emerge from creating package.unmask or ** keyword changes. Use --autounmask-write to write changes to config files (honoring CONFIG_PROTECT).
Solved. The two asteriks held the key to the problem. As in :=net-print/cups-bjnp-1.0 ** . I think they were the "key word". I did this in my /etc/make.conf
ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="**" That solved the problem, it was just a guess on my part, I don't know if that was the correct solution though.
