Description Mike Wohlgemuth 2005-07-17 06:10:41 UTC
After doing an emerge sync, I get the following:

racerx ~ # emerge -puD world

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

Calculating world dependencies /
!!! All ebuilds that could satisfy ">=www-client/mozilla-launcher-1.34" have
been masked.
!!! One of the following masked packages is required to complete your request:
- www-client/mozilla-launcher-1.34 (masked by: ~x86 keyword)
- www-client/mozilla-launcher-1.35 (masked by: ~x86 keyword)

For more information, see MASKED PACKAGES section in the emerge man page or
section 2.2 "Software Availability" in the Gentoo Handbook.
!!!    (dependency required by "mail-client/mozilla-thunderbird-1.0.5" [ebuild])

!!! Problem with ebuild mail-client/mozilla-thunderbird-1.0.5
!!! Possibly a DEPEND/*DEPEND problem.

!!! Depgraph creation failed.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.  emerge sync
2.  emerge -puD world

Actual Results:  
back to the shell prompt

Expected Results:  
emerge should update my packages

mozilla-thunderbird-1.0.5 is keyworded ~x86, invalid bug. 

echo ">=www-client/mozilla-launcher-1.34 ~x86" >> /etc/portage/package.keywords

This is not a resolution to the bug.  It is a work around.  I would assume that
mozilla-launcher is masked for a reason.  Having unmasked packages with masked
dependencies is clearly a bug.

Read comment #1 again and more carefully; ~arch package depending on ~arch
package is perfectly valid and NOT a bug.
