Description Sergei Trofimovich (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2019-05-21 07:13:22 UTC
My setup:


    sys-kernel/linux-firmware       linux-firmware freedist no-source-code

Got license update conflict today with seemingly invalid license output:

$ emerge -pv1 sys-kernel/linux-firmware

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

Calculating dependencies... done!

!!! The following updates are masked by LICENSE changes:
- sys-kernel/linux-firmware-20190514::gentoo (masked by: || ( ) linux-fw-redistributable license(s))
A copy of the 'linux-fw-redistributable' license is located at '/gentoo-ebuilds/gentoo/licenses/linux-fw-redistributable'.

For more information, see the MASKED PACKAGES section in the emerge
man page or refer to the Gentoo Handbook.
