#1 System administration » Wlroots v0.16 masked, why? » 2023-05-25 16:23:45

Hello there,

I'm not very familiar with gentoo, but managed to use it and its many ebuilds thanks to your fantastic distro!

But after trying to upgrade today, I was met with the following error:

Local copy of remote index is up-to-date and will be used.
!!! FEATURES=fakeroot is enabled, but the fakeroot binary is not installed.

The following USE changes are necessary to proceed:
 (see "package.use" in the portage(5) man page for more details)
# required by gui-wm/hyprland-0.25.0::gentoo[X]
# required by @selected
# required by @world (argument)
>=gui-libs/wlroots-0.15.1-r1 x11-backend

 * In order to avoid wasting time, backtracking has terminated early
 * due to the above autounmask change(s). The --autounmask-backtrack=y
 * option can be used to force further backtracking, but there is no
 * guarantee that it will produce a solution.

!!! All ebuilds that could satisfy ">=gui-libs/wlroots-0.16.0[X?]" have been masked.
!!! One of the following masked packages is required to complete your request:
- gui-libs/wlroots-9999::gentoo (masked by: missing keyword)
- gui-libs/wlroots-0.16.2::gentoo (masked by: package.mask)

(dependency required by "gui-wm/hyprland-0.25.0::gentoo" [ebuild])
(dependency required by "@selected" [set])
(dependency required by "@world" [argument])
For more information, see the MASKED PACKAGES section in the emerge
man page or refer to the Gentoo Handbook.

 * IMPORTANT: 2 news items need reading for repository 'gentoo'.
 * Use eselect news read to view new items.

Cannot proceed!

Apply the above changes to your portage configuration files and try again

I wasn't aware of what masking was or how it worked, but quickly realized that this was intentional: … de0446dafa

So the Question is: Should i just wait until the package has been tested and will be unmasked? (it will be unmasked right?) And will the change be applied using sisyphus update? (since sisyphus upgrade is being blocked because of this).

PS: Take your time, maintaining a distro must be hard.
