1 Hi,
3 Due to the recent X updates, portage wants to upgrade ati-drivers. I am
4 having problems with all ati-drivers newer than 8.34.8 [1], so what is
5 the official way to make sure 8.34.8 stays there until a newer version
6 is released that fixes these problems? Is just filing a bug against a
7 specific version enough?
9 (I already know how to mask the newer xorg versions, no probs)
11 The bug I did file [2] was marked resolved, upstream, but I only
12 mentioned the latest release of ati-drivers, not all of them. I've also
13 found out a bit more since then. So what's the official way to keep an
14 ebuild around? I noticed there are quite a few versions
15 in /usr/portage/x11-drivers/ati-drivers, but maybe not for long?!
17 thanks,

27 It's your heart. And I think it's on its last thump.
29 Homer: Whew, I was afraid it was my transmission.
