    No, 'gnome-extra' is the category in Portage which brasero is in, if you change it to anything else, you will probably get an error saying brasero can not be found. Once you've done this, I just 'emerge brasero' should work (at least, it's always worked for me).

    Hi gruven and psic,

    # emerge -pv bonfire
    Code:
    These are the packages that would be merged, in order:
    
    Calculating dependencies
    emerge: there are no ebuilds to satisfy "bonfire".
    # emerge -av bonfire
    Code:
    These are the packages that would be merged, in order:
    
    Calculating dependencies
    emerge: there are no ebuilds to satisfy "bonfire".
    Please advise how to proceed. TIA

    B.R.

    Code:
    emerge -av brasero
    Brasero is the new name for Bonfire.

    Hi gruven,

    Brasero is the new name for Bonfire.
    Tks.

    # emerge -pv brasero
    Code:
    These are the packages that would be merged, in order:
    
    Calculating dependencies
    !!! All ebuilds that could satisfy "brasero" have been masked.
    !!! One of the following masked packages is required to complete your request:
    - app-cdr/brasero-0.4.4 (masked by: ~amd64 keyword)
    - app-cdr/brasero-0.4.90 (masked by: package.mask, ~amd64 keyword)
    # Luis Medinas <metalgod@gentoo.org> (06 Sep 2006)
    # Mask Brasero development releases until 0.5.0
    # stable is out
    
    - app-cdr/brasero-0.4.2 (masked by: ~amd64 keyword)
    
    For more information, see MASKED PACKAGES section in the emerge man page or refer to the Gentoo Handbook.
    Referring to MASKED PACKAGES on man emerge I have to update /etc/portage/package.key-words. No such a file. But I found;

    /etc/portage/package.use
    Code:
    X11-libs/cairo X
    x11-libs/cairo x
    x11-libs/cairo png
    What shall I add there. Besides "cairo X" and "cariro x" which of them is correct? I'll delete the incorrect line.

    TIA

    B.R.

    Just create a file called package.keywords (this used to be the correct spelling, has it changed?) in /etc/portage and leave package.use alone.

    Hi psic,

    Oh, "package.key-words" was not typing mistake. Sorry.

    $ ls -l /etc/portage/
    Code:
    total 4
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 80 Sep 21 08:01 package.use
    No such tile.

    just do:
    Code:
    echo "app-cdr/brasero ~amd64 >> /etc/portage/package/keywords
    and echo will create the file for you.
    Here's why Linux is easier than Windows:
    Package Managers! Apt-Get and Portage (among others) allow users to install programs MUCH easier than Windows can.
    Hardware Drivers. In SuSE, ALL the hardware is detected and installed automatically! How is this harder than Windows' constant disc changing and rebooting?

    Hi psic

    I don't have /etc/portage/package.keywords. I have /etc/portage/package.use

    Which file shall I use? Create a new file /etc/portage/package.keywords? Or use the existing file /etc/portage/package.use ?

    Tks

    Yes. Just create the file and add the revelant lines to it.
