Firefox 50.1.0 is blocking videos in twitter, and I can not seem to fix it.


Code:

mysys portage # emerge --ask www-client/google-chrome
--- Invalid atom in /etc/portage/package.use/custom: bidi
--- Invalid atom in /etc/portage/package.use/custom: wxwindows
--- Invalid atom in /etc/portage/package.keywords/custom: www-client/google-chrome-58.0.3029.81

Local copy of remote index is up-to-date and will be used.
!!! Invalid news item: /usr/portage/metadata/news/2017-04-10-split-and-slotted-wine/2017-04-10-split-and-slotted-wine.en.txt
!!!   line 6: News-Item-Format: 2.0

 * IMPORTANT: 5 config files in '/etc/portage' need updating.
 * See the CONFIGURATION FILES and CONFIGURATION FILES UPDATE TOOLS
 * sections of the emerge man page to learn how to update config files.

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

Calculating dependencies... done!
[ebuild  N    ~] www-client/google-chrome-58.0.3029.81  USE="plugins" L10N="am ar bg bn ca cs da de el en-GB es es-419 et fa fi fil fr gu he hi hr hu id it ja kn ko lt lv ml mr ms nb nl pl pt-BR pt-PT ro ru sk sl sr sv sw ta te th tr uk vi zh-CN zh-TW"

The following keyword changes are necessary to proceed:
 (see "package.accept_keywords" in the portage(5) man page for more details)
# required by www-client/google-chrome (argument)
=www-client/google-chrome-58.0.3029.81 ~amd64

Would you like to add these changes to your config files? [Yes/No] Yes

Autounmask changes successfully written.

I tried editing /etc/portage/package.keywords/custom

Code:

media-video/vlc ~x86
www-client/google-chrome-58.0.3029.81 ~amd6


BTW: I have been able to get VLC installed either.

I found this, on another site, but it does not work either.


Code:

fir portage # emerge --ask --oneshot -v ">=www-client/chromium-57.0.2987.133"



Any insight appreciated.

Let's see:
Code:
~ # emerge -s google-chrome
 
[ Results for search key : google-chrome ]
Searching...

*  www-client/google-chrome [ Masked ]
      Latest version available: 58.0.3029.81
      Latest version installed: [ Not Installed ]
      Size of files: 55,357 KiB
      Homepage:      https://www.google.com/chrome
      Description:   The web browser from Google
      License:       google-chrome

*  www-client/google-chrome-beta [ Masked ]
      Latest version available: 58.0.3029.81
      Latest version installed: [ Not Installed ]
      Size of files: 58,175 KiB
      Homepage:      https://www.google.com/chrome

*  www-client/google-chrome-unstable [ Masked ]

Okay, this shows that it's masked (and probably not keyworded). Let's take care of that:
Code:
~ # echo www-client/google-chrome >/etc/portage/package.unmask/google-chrome
~ # echo www-client/google-chrome >/etc/portage/package.keywords/google-chrome
and then try emerging it:
Code:
secmt-service01 ~ # emerge -va google-chrome

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

Calculating dependencies... done!
[ebuild  N     ] gnome-base/gconf-3.2.6-r4:2::gentoo  USE="-debug introspection ldap (policykit)" ABI_X86="32 (64) (-x32)" PYTHON_TARGETS="python2_7" 0 KiB
[ebuild  N    ~] www-client/google-chrome-58.0.3029.81::gentoo  USE="plugins" L10N="-am -ar -bg -bn -ca -cs -da -de -el en-GB -es -es-419 -et -fa -fi -fil -fr -gu -he -hi -hr -hu -id -it -ja -kn -ko -lt -lv -ml -mr -ms -nb -nl -pl -pt-BR -pt-PT -ro -ru -sk -sl -sr -sv -sw -ta -te -th -tr -uk -vi -zh-CN -zh-TW" 55,357 KiB

Total: 2 packages (2 new), Size of downloads: 55,357 KiB

The following license changes are necessary to proceed:
 (see "package.license" in the portage(5) man page for more details)
# required by google-chrome (argument)
>=www-client/google-chrome-58.0.3029.81 google-chrome

Would you like to add these changes to your config files? [Yes/No]
Okay, this shows that the license isn't accepted by default. You can either add "google-chrome" to the ACCEPT_LICENSE variable in your /etc/portage/make.conf or else accept the license for just google-chrome, like this:
Code:
secmt-service01 ~ # echo "www-client/google-chrome google-chrome" >/etc/portage/package.license/google-chrome

After that a straight
Code:
~ # emerge google-chrome
should work.

Incidentally, all of these techniques are covered in the Working with Portage section of the Gentoo Handbook. Might be worth it to you to give it a read (or review). :wink:
