Unmasking autounmask

  • Posted on January 9, 2011 at 18:36

I found out that a lot of Gentoo-stuff has not yet been tested on the PPC64 platform, but appears to work just fine. Take WordPress for example!

Unmasking is basically, or usually, the only thing that needs to be done. But immediately, there is the first barrier: How to get autounmask to work?
Well, this is what worked for me:

Edit /etc/portage/package.keywords, and add:
# autounmask
app-portage/autounmask *
dev-perl/PortageXS *
virtual/perl-Term-ANSIColor *
perl-core/Term-ANSIColor *

And now run “emerge autounmask” (again).
Et voila! Autounmask will emerge having no trouble at all!
