Description Michal Varady 2005-12-09 06:18:10 UTC
package.use should support comments, like #. I needed to add some comments to
lines, in order to know, why I enabled/disabled a USE flag, but # causes

--- Invalid atom in /etc/portage/package.use: #

error message.
Comment 1 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2005-12-09 06:39:20 UTC
comments work just fine for me:
# head /etc/portage/package.use
# booga
app-editors/nano nomac
#sys-libs/libcap -python
x11-wm/enlightenment nothemes
app-emulation/qemu softmmu
Comment 2 Michal Varady 2005-12-09 07:54:04 UTC
that's strange, I've changed comments little bit and now it's ok. Unfortunately,
I can't find out how to get this error message again...
