When I try to emerge app-emacs/python-mode it tells me that it is blocked because <code>- app-emacs/python-mode-4.6 (masked by: missing keyword)</code>. Apparently the ebuild is only marked for x86 machines. However, if I do <code>emerge /usr/portage/app-emacs/python-mode/python-mode-4.6.ebuild</code> it emerges just fine and then works without a hitch when editing .py files in Emacs.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. enter the command "emerge app-emacs/python-mode" on a ppc machine
!!! all ebuilds that could satisfy "python-mode" have been masked.
!!! possible candidates are:
- app-emacs/python-mode-4.6 (masked by: missing keyword)
!!! Error calculating dependencies. Please correct.</code>
It should have emerged python-mode just fine because it works on ppc as well as x86
I added this to ~ppc.
I made it stable on ppc.
