Description Stephen Uhlhorn 2005-02-03 11:43:43 UTC
I cannot install the tetex documentation because USE="doc" is masked in the darwin (and macos?) profiles.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.USE="doc" emerge tetex

Actual Results:  
MRHANKY:~ root# USE="doc" emerge -pv tetex

These are the packages that I would merge, in order:

Calculating dependencies ...done!
[ebuild   R   ] app-text/tetex-2.0.2-r4  +X -debug (-doc)* 0 kB 

Total size of downloads: 0 kB

Expected Results:  
[ebuild   R   ] app-text/tetex-2.0.2-r4  +X -debug +doc* 0 kB 

I tried the followinf to override use.mask:
1) added doc flag to make.conf
2) added doc flag to package.use
3) added USE="doc" to emerge command

Commenting out the doc flag in profile/default-darwin/use.mask allowed me to
emerge the tetex docs without error.

doc is a global USE flag and probably masked because many other packages have
problems on OSX when installing them with documentation.

For now this can't be fixed and it will be fixed as soon as the doc USE flag can
be unmasked (probably only when we have prefixed installs).
