Subject: can't emerge synaptics
Date: Sun, 30 Oct 2005 19:14:32 +0100
I can't emerge synaptics because they are masked
I've tried to do echo "x11-misc/synaptics ~amd64" >>
/etc/portage/package.keywords , but it doesn't work, if I try to
emerge I have:

Calculating dependencies
!!! All ebuilds that could satisfy "synaptics" have been masked.
!!! One of the following masked packages is required to complete your request:
- x11-misc/synaptics-0.14.3 (masked by: ~amd64 keyword)
- x11-misc/synaptics-0.14.2 (masked by: ~amd64 keyword)
- x11-misc/synaptics-0.14.1 (masked by: ~amd64 keyword)

For more information, see MASKED PACKAGES section in the emerge man page or
section 2.2 "Software Availability" in the Gentoo Handboo

What can I do?
