Default Amarok only masked with ~x86 keyword

Hello,

What does it means when the ~amd64 is not one of the keywords used to
mask the package?

The problem I have is that I would like to install amarok 2 but I
cannot unmask it by accepting ~amd64. It is safe to unmask it using
~x86 even though my system is amd64?

Thanks in advance.

Best,
Damian.

The ebuild has this:

$ grep KEYWORDS amarok-2.0.1.1.ebuild
KEYWORDS="~x86"

So it's not even tested on amd64. The answer is in 'man portage':


Note:
In addition to the normal values from ACCEPT_KEYWORDS package.key-
words supports three special tokens:

* package is visible if it is stable on any architecture
~* package is visible if it is in testing on any architecture
** package is always visible (KEYWORDS are ignored completely)

I almost forgot - trying to emerge amarok2.0.1.1 is almost guaranteed to fail
due to the amarok devs have no clue as to how mysql is built, plus other
errors:

Indeed. I think it's time for me to drop one more kde app.

Before trying to emerge Amarok 2, create (or edit) the file
/etc/portage/env/dev-db/mysql and add these lines:

CFLAGS="-march=core2 -O2 -ggdb -pipe -DPIC -fPIC"
CXXFLAGS="-O2 -pipe -DPIC -fPIC"

(change the march & other options to match what you normally use for
CFLAGS/CXXFLAGS), the important part here is -DPIC -fPIC

then re-emerge mysql if you've already got it installed. After that
Amarok should build successfully. If you don't do that, you will waste
your time.

I'm sorely tempted to do the same. amarok-2.0.1.1 does eventually compile if
you:

build mysql or mysql-community with USE="embedded -minimal"
then
build amarok

But it just feels ... clunky. The big content panel in the middle is awkward:

There's no way I can find to tell amarok which applet you want to go where,
with multiple panes in use the animation effect to switch from one to the
other is non-intuitive. Eventually by zooming the whole thing out you can see
it's 4 panes arranged 2x2 and the animation simulates moving from one to
another. But it doesn't *tell* you it's laid out like that so the random
motion looks weird. The "last played" display switches back and forth between
a "name with cover art" format and a long black oval just like the applet
selector. Um, which is it supposed to be?

And many many other quirks, too many to mention. As a player, it plays OK -
sound does come out of the speakers. But players are commodity apps these
days. Dump one, use another, easy peasy.

Now that's *much* better. I could even use that :-)

Gotta patch?

Currently I have switched to MPD (which is lirc-izable and has plenty of
clients). Will look at A2 evolution...
