Comment 2 Eero Volotinen 2006-08-23 06:29:20 UTC
stable and ~x86 masked on latest portage.
Comment 3 Eero Volotinen 2006-08-23 06:30:16 UTC
problem mainly is when you need to use foomatic based printers
Comment 4 Jakub Moc (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-08-23 06:39:07 UTC
cups-1.2.x is not supposed to produce anything in /usr/libs/cups, that directory doesn't even exist any more.
