    unmasking packages


    Hi everyone! I have a question. I've been trying to emerge a package that apparently is masked. The exact message is:

    !!!All ebuilds that could satisfy "quake1" have been masked.
    !!! One of the following masked packages is required to complete your request:
    - games-fps/quake1-2.40-r1 (masked by -* keyword)

    I've man emerge and it gives two solutions: to take a look in the package.mask file (but quake1 is not masked there, it doesn't show anywhere) and the other is to look in package.keywords (wich is empty). Googleing around I cannot seem to find how to instruct portage to install quake1 package anyways; everywhere I find the ~x86 (ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~x86") but it is not masked because of that keyword... any ideas? Thanks in advance!

    I did a emerge --search quake1 to find these packages.

    EDIT: Huge mistake. I was able to emerge some of those packages. Thank you, budman7!
    still... does anyone know what does the -* keyword mean? and how to proceed emerging such source (if possible)?

    Could you post the contents of etc.make.conf?

    Sure:

    CFLAGS="-O2 -march=pentium4 -pipe"
    CHOST="i686-pc-linux-gnu"
    CXXFLAGS="${CFLAGS}"
    MAKEOPTS="-j2"

    besides a couple of comments.

    Regards,

    Looks fine to me.
    I would put in there

    ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~x86"

    That way you don't have to type it in whenever you try to emerge something.
    They say that the stuff you could get is unstable, but IMO it is very stable, just not well proven.
