I hacked up my package.keywords file in order to get Gnome 2.12 and a lot of associated stuff. It's just been proving too much of a pain for me to deal with. (Today I can no loger sync my Treo.) I've taken out most of the stuff I had in there, and I'm writing this while it downgrades about 100 packages. What this won't take into consideration is the fact that I've got stuff in the system that will no longer work. A good example is beagle. There's no stable version of it, so I've got an unstable version left hanging after I've downgraded all the mono packages it depends on. How do I scrape all the ~x86 stuff off my system that should no longer be there?

While I'm at it, does anyone have any words of advice before I also try an `emerge -p --depclean'? There are 95 packages it wants to clean. Most of it LOOKS innocuous, but I'm certainly not an expert. I've never tried this. Is it generally a safe thing to do?

Use =some-dir/some-package-version# ~arch (replace arch with your arch eg x86, ppc)
in /etc/portage/package.keywords for those packages that just need to be from ~arch.
You will need to check dependencies and add any that require ~arch to package.keywords for each
dependency.

An example:

=dev-java/ibm-jdk-bin-1.4.2.03 ~ppc

Well, I'm clear on that. That's how I got to be where I'm at. And, while I could "pin" all those packages back, I need a way of listing everything on the system that's still at ~x86 so that I know WHAT to pin. And there are, like beagle, things that don't exist in x86 that ought to be removed entirely. How do I get a list that shows these things?
