    I'm having problems with a T/C (tool chain)update...


    Well here is how it goes, I'm trying to update my system but I keep running into this:
    Code:
    !!! All ebuilds that could satisfy "app-admin/eselect-compiler" have been masked.
    !!! One of the following masked packages is required to complete your request:
    - app-admin/eselect-compiler-2.0.0_beta5 (masked by: package.mask)
    # Jeremy Huddleston <eradicator@gentoo.org> &#40;24 Sep 2005&#41;
    # Still in development
    
    - app-admin/eselect-compiler-2.0.0_rc1-r1 &#40;masked by&#58; package.mask, package.mask&#41;
    
    For more information, see MASKED PACKAGES section in the emerge man page or
    section 2.2 "Software Availability" in the Gentoo Handbook.
    !!!    &#40;dependency required by "sys-devel/gcc-3.4.4-r1" &#91;ebuild&#93;&#41;
    
    
    !!! Problem with ebuild sys-apps/baselayout-1.11.13-r1
    !!! Possibly a DEPEND/*DEPEND problem.
    
    !!! Depgraph creation failed.
    I've tried unmasking "eselect-compiler" in /etc/portage/package.unmask, and /etc/portage/package.keywords, but I still can't get past this little speed bump. Any suggestions???

    Try this...

    Code:
    echo ">=app-admin/eselect-compiler-2.0.0_rc1-r1" >> /etc/portage/package.unmask

    Thanks Dachnaz, after I added ">=" to the beginning of that line portage asked me to add "app-admin/eselect" to package.unmask as well. After that is when I was finally able to get past these error's.

    I'm wondering though, why do I need to compile the "eselect-compiler" in order to past an update when I'm already using "gcc-config"??
