    Emerging firefox1.5 [SOLVED]


    I see from the portage mirrors that firefox1.5 has made it to portage, but I cannot find it from the command line.
    Code:
    *  www-client/mozilla-firefox
          Latest version available: 1.0.7-r2
          Latest version installed: 1.0.7-r2
          Size of downloaded files: 32,231 kB
          Homepage:    http://www.mozilla.org/projects/firefox/
          Description: Firefox Web Browser
          License:     MPL-1.1 NPL-1.1
    I "emerge --sync" once a day so I thought it should appear when I search for it from the command line. What am I missing??

    i see it! it is ~x86 are you ~x86 ?
    if not do this
    Code:
    ACCEPT_KEYWORDS emerge -s mozilla-firefox
    or to make it perminant do this
    Code:
    echo "www-client/mozilla-firefox ~x86" >> /etc/portage/package.keywords
    if that dosnt do it then your mirror isnt fully updated as of yet then comment the mirrors line in /etc/make.conf and just emetge it from the main gentoo server
