Gentoo will never have a 6.9 version available...the devs are only going the modular route. If you really want 7.0, I would suggest unmasking it, and helping to identify any problems with the build or dependancies. The ebuilds have gotten much better in recent weeks, so it is possible that the problems you had previously have been resolved. -Richard -- gentoo-amd64@g.o mailing list
