I have a shiny new AMD64 box, and wanted to emerge sun-jdk-188.8.131.52-r2, but
received the following message:
!!! All ebuilds that could satisfy "=dev-java/sun-jdk-184.108.40.206-r2" have been
!!! One of the following masked packages is required to complete your request:
- dev-java/sun-jdk-220.127.116.11-r2 (masked by: missing keyword)
Now according to the Gentoo Handbook, this means that the sun-jdk has not been
tested (sufficiently) on the amd64 architecture.
Can I unmask this package, install it, and then report any bugs I find using
it on this architecture, or is there any overwhelming reason why this won't
Thanks for your advice,
