    But wouldn't an attempt to install an app dependent on mysql potentially succeed eroniously? What I'm trying to see - and education is always a good thing - is that in order to truely block mysql, you would need something a bit more complex than an entree in <TT>/etc/portage/package.provided</TT>.<BR>
    <BR>
    Something in addition? like:<BR>
    <BR>
    equery --nocolor hasuse mysql|awk '{print &quot;&gt;=&quot;$1}' &gt; &lt;<TT>/etc/portage/package.provided|/etc/portage/package.mask&gt;</TT><BR>
    <BR>
    to avoid the consequences of basically saying that it's there when it isn't?<BR>
    <BR>
    I have read the man page, but it doesn't seem to address the consequenses down the road for this condition.
