Understood and accepted. ;-)

Putting "~x86" in package.keywords still gets me this: jupiter portage # emerge -pv snort These are the packages that would be merged, in order: Calculating dependencies !!! All ebuilds that could satisfy "snort" have been masked. !!! One of the following masked packages is required to complete your request: - - net-analyzer/snort-2.6.0 (masked by: package.mask) # Marcelo Goes <vanquirius@g.o> (07 Jul 2006) # Masked for testing # Please see bug 136250 for more details - - net-analyzer/snort-2.4.5 (masked by: -sparc keyword) For more information, see MASKED PACKAGES section in the emerge man page or refer to the Gentoo Handbook. But putting '-sparc' seems to work: jupiter portage # emerge -av snort These are the packages that would be merged, in order: Calculating dependencies... done!
