You may be using eudev (and thus don't need to worry about it), but if a person blindly copies that into their make.conf and sys-fs/udev breaks, they'll get to keep the pieces because they deliberately screwed themselves. It's not a use case we can support. It doesn't mean INSTALL_MASK is always a bad idea; it's simply meant to be used by people who are fully aware of its effects. -- Daniel Campbell - Gentoo Developer, Trustee, Treasurer OpenPGP Key: 0x1EA055D6 @ hkp://keys.gnupg.net fpr: AE03 9064 AE00 053C 270C 1DE4 6F7A 9091 1EA0 55D6
