Hello, I think this is the right area, I'm having an issue with Portage masking Virtualbox-Additions, and I have no clue how to unmask a package with the PUEL license, here's the output of Emerge -av virtualbox:

Code:


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

Calculating dependencies  ... done!

!!! All ebuilds that could satisfy "~app-emulation/virtualbox-additions-4.0.12" have been masked.
!!! One of the following masked packages is required to complete your request:
- app-emulation/virtualbox-additions-4.0.12::gentoo (masked by: PUEL license(s))
A copy of the 'PUEL' license is located at '/usr/portage/licenses/PUEL'.


(dependency required by "app-emulation/virtualbox-4.0.12[additions]" [ebuild])
(dependency required by "virtualbox" [argument])
For more information, see the MASKED PACKAGES section in the emerge
man page or refer to the Gentoo Handbook.




I haven't seen anything on how to unmask PUEL Licensed Packages, as far as I can tell, virtualbox is in stable release?

Code:
echo "app-emulation/virtualbox-additions PUEL" >> /etc/portage/package.license


Or add ACCEPT_LICENSE="${ACCEPT_LICENSE} PUEL" to make.conf, but I think the above is cleaner.

The warnings/error messages for license issues in portage could really do with being more helpful or informative...
