hi

Code:
bash-2.05b# emerge openoffice-ximian

Quote:
Calculating dependencies
!!! All ebuilds that could satisfy "openoffice-ximian" have been masked.
!!! One of the following masked packages is required to complete your request:
- app-office/openoffice-ximian-1.3.6-r1 (masked by: missing keyword)
- app-office/openoffice-ximian-1.3.11 (masked by: missing keyword)
- app-office/openoffice-ximian-1.3.9-r1 (masked by: missing keyword)

For more information, see MASKED PACKAGES section in the emerge man page or
section 2.2 "Software Availability" in the Gentoo Handbook.

If a package is masked by keyword (~x86 for instance), then you would do the following:
Code:

echo "app-office/openoffice-ximian ~x86" >> /etc/portage/package.keywords


(That's assuming that your architecutre is x86)

package.unmask is for hard masked packages. See the wiki here
