Getting asked to unmask '=x11-base/xorg-drivers-1.17' when trying to 'emerge xorg-x11'.



I'm following the instructions at https://www.funtoo.org/X_Window_System

When I try to 'emerge xorg-x11', I get the following Portage output:

# Matt Turner <mattst88@gentoo.org> (21 Oct 2017)
# The 1.12 and 1.15 branches are no longer supported and remain vulnerable to
# various CVEs (CVE-2013-6424, bug #493294 and CVE-2017-2624 bug #611350 just
# to name a few). They remain in tree only for old nvidia-drivers 96 and 173.

NOTE: The --autounmask-keep-masks option will prevent emerge
      from creating package.unmask or ** keyword changes.

Use --autounmask-write to write changes to config files (honoring
CONFIG_PROTECT). Carefully examine the list of proposed changes,
paying special attention to mask or keyword changes that may expose
experimental or unstable packages.

It appears that 'xorg-drivers-1.17' has been masked from the Gentoo side due to bugs in versions 1.12 and 1.15, but has been kept in the repo for compatibility with the Nvidia drivers.  But I'm not running Nvidia drivers, even have 'VIDEO_CARDS="intel"' specified in my 'make.conf',' and the version being emerged is 1.17.

If I understand the output correctly the problematic package is being pulled in by 'x11-drivers/xf86-input-evdev-2.9.2::xorg-kit', but it has no USE flag to turn off Nvidia support.

Is this package just masked in error by Gentoo since it is not version 1.12 or 1.15, and safe to unmask?  Or should I do something else like switch to a different branch in 'xorg-kit'?  Please advise...

show output of grep -r xorg-server /etc/portage


Hmmm, I just ran this command, but it did not produce any output, as I do not have the token 'xorg-server' in any file under my '/etc/portage'...

And if I just do 'grep -r xorg /etc/portage', I only get:

the exact gentoo mask is overridden, and i getting no this mask message anywhere on boxes. can you paste full emerge output where this message occurs.

You can see the full output of my  'emerge xorg-x11' command, which is what emitted that unmask message for me, in my first post above.  I did not use any additional command line arguments for that command.  Would you like me to run it again with '-v' or anything else?

fixed now.

OK, thanks Oleg, works now after 'ego sync'.

I see your commit: https://github.com/funtoo/kit-fixups/commit/94e0ae64d79efd6ca03a849fe0426c53d37c57d1#diff-54f4a5f008b420d3daba1a5dbd40408a

I take it that file 'funtoo-cautionary' is something like a patch file for the original 'package.mask' from Gentoo, and the minus sign means that that default Gentoo mask entry is getting removed?
