Description Dennis Schridde 2008-06-10 15:37:05 UTC
emerge -uDNpv --world tells me an installed package would be masked, while it is not. I can even reemerge it without any message about masking.

host ~ # emerge -uDNpv --world

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Calculating dependencies... done!

!!! The following installed packages are masked:
- media-gfx/pngrewrite-1.2.1 (masked by: missing keyword)
For more information, see the MASKED PACKAGES section in the emerge
man page or refer to the Gentoo Handbook.

host ~ # emerge -pv =media-gfx/pngrewrite-1.2.1

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Calculating dependencies... done!
[ebuild   R   ] media-gfx/pngrewrite-1.2.1  0 kB

Total: 1 package (1 reinstall), Size of downloads: 0 kB

host ~ # grep KEYWORDS /usr/portage/media-gfx/pngrewrite/pngrewrite-1.2.1.ebuild
KEYWORDS="~amd64 ppc sparc x86"

host ~ # grep KEYWORDS /etc/make.conf

Comment 1 Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2008-06-10 22:12:37 UTC
It seems like the ~amd64 keyword is missing from /var/db/pkg/media-gfx/pngrewrite-1.2.1/KEYWORDS. Does that file contain any keywords?

Here are some possible workarounds:
1) echo "=media-gfx/pngrewrite-1.2.1 **" >> /etc/portage/package.keywords
2) rebuild pngrewrite
Comment 2 Dennis Schridde 2008-06-10 22:23:17 UTC
host ~ # cat /var/db/pkg/media-gfx/pngrewrite-1.2.1/KEYWORDS
ppc sparc x86

So that message is thrown when I install a package while it is keyword-unmasked, and then remove that keyword-unmasking? Even if the ebuild itself in the tree now contains the keyword?
I removed "... **" from package.keywords, when the ebuild got ~amd64 keyworded, because I assumed it was now unneeded.
Comment 3 Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2008-06-10 23:33:25 UTC
I suppose we can suppress the warning in cases when an available package has keywords.
Comment 4 Dennis Schridde 2008-06-10 23:53:13 UTC
What is the policy on this: Is it allowed to change packages without revision increment while in unstable? One could argue that stable users would never have installed the old package, "self-pwned"?
If that is the case (I did not think about this before), it would be useful to have a warning, possibly with a notice: "The tree ebuild is not masked, try reemerging."
Otherwise suppression sounds good.
Comment 5 Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2008-06-11 09:23:57 UTC
Well, suppression is the best option for me because it helps me to avoid more bug reports like this one. :)
Comment 6 Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2008-06-12 01:41:06 UTC
This is fixed in
