Hi all,


There are some problems with the java dependencies in portage. To be fair, the problem is that virtual-jdk1.4 searches for a 1.4 blackdown install and doesn't even care if the ibm-jdk(jre) 1.4 is there or not. Therefor i cannot mask any package depending on 1.4 to unstable/stable for the moment.

We have extensively been addressing this error to the portage maintainers, and they promised to suply a solution quickely!

For the time being i hope you all can manage, if not you can always email me, or find me on #gentoo-ppc (in the evenings CET). Or simply send me a pm.

My sincerest apologies for this inconvenience...

Jochen Maes

update:

The ibm license has been given to us, so we can distribute the ibm-jdk/jre on our mirrors.

this is good news :)


greetings,
