I'm sorry, but I got lost on that link. I don't know Gentoo at all,
and I'm trying to help a client out, so this is really, really new to
I'm trying to install xen, but I keep running into a wall with it.
sh-3.2# emerge xen
Calculating dependencies -
!!! All ebuilds that could satisfy "app-emulation/xen" have been masked.
!!! One of the following masked packages is required to complete your request:
- app-emulation/xen-3.2.1 (masked by: ~amd64 keyword)
- app-emulation/xen-3.2.0 (masked by: ~amd64 keyword)
- app-emulation/xen-3.1.3 (masked by: ~amd64 keyword)
For more information, see MASKED PACKAGES section in the emerge man page or
refer to the Gentoo Handbook.
Reading through the man pages is a nightmare,probably cause it makes
no sense, and the formatting is aweful.
I've asked the client if he knows how to get past this step, and then
I'll see if I can get it to work.
Thanx for your help :)
