Hi again all,

Still relating to keyworded packages, why doesn't this work?

miguel@feynman ~ $ fgrep KEYWORD /usr/portage/dev-java/sun-jdk/sun-
jdk-1.5.0.06.ebuild
KEYWORDS="~x86 ~amd64 -*"
miguel@feynman ~ $ sudo fgrep sun-jdk /etc/portage/package.unmask
>=dev-java/sun-jdk-1.5.0
miguel@feynman ~ $ sudo fgrep sun-jdk /etc/portage/package.keywords dev-java/sun-jdk ~amd64 miguel@feynman ~ $ emerge sun-jdk -pv These are the packages that I would merge, in order: Calculating dependencies !!!
