Hi all,<br><br>I've been trying to emerge gcc 4.0.2-r2, messing with /etc/portage/package.unmask &amp; /etc/portage/package.keywords <br>without success..<br><br>the portage man page says that if a package has -* is know to be broken on all arches otherwise mentioned.
<br>So is 4.0.1, 4.0.0, 4.1-snapshot..<br><br>I would expect it to be at least marked unstable &quot;~amd64 ..&quot;<br><br>gentoo seems to have major problems in keeping up with the public releases.. its starting to look like debian stable....
<br>also.. I don't see the point in having 3 types of tags: stable, unstable, broken.. maybe the same point of (stable, testing, unstable.. ala debian)<br><br>Nevermind, basically, I'm using gentoo since 1.0rc6 and starting to be disapointed by the slowness of having fresh software available..
<br><br>gnome 2.12 came out 7 of september, maybe when gnome 2.14 is out I can find it keyworded &quot;amd64&quot;..<br><br>In conclusion, package mantainance needs a new organizational way to scale..<br>Or should I simply move to ~amd64, just like any debian user sets its system to testing without thinking twice, just after the install.
<br><br>Best regards,<br clear="all"><br>-- <br>Miguel Sousa Filipe
