this is what i get when i try to emerge pretty much anything, i used traceroute for this example

Sheila home # emerge traceroute
Calculating dependencies
!!! Problem in net-analyzer/traceroute dependencies.
!!! "Specific key requires an operator (gnustep-apps/preview-0.7.5_pre20041021) (try adding an '=')"


I tried adding an = infront of gnustep-apps/preview in /var/cache/edb/world, i synced, and no success. I then tried removing everything i coudl find related to gnustep-apps/preview, synced, and i'm still getting the error. then i noticed something. i get this output at the end of emerge sync and when i run emerge --debug traceroute

Traceback (most recent call last):

please take a look at this file /etc/portage/package.keywords and add the "=" at that file. You shouldn't edit /var/cache/edb/world by hand... ;-)
