Thread: Important gentoo updates

    Important gentoo updates

    portage, rsync, and gentoolkit has been updated, also read the following note:

    * NOTICE: PLEASE update your make.globals. All user changes to variables
    * in make.globals should be placed in make.conf. DO NOT MODIFY make.globals.

    * NOTICE: The wheel group requirement for non-root users has been changed to
    * group portage. Group portage must be a valid group for user to use portage.

    * Feature additions are noted in help and make.conf descriptions. Update
    * them using 'etc-update' please. Maintaining current configs for portage
    * and other system packages is fairly important for the continued health
    * of your system.

    * A worldfile rebuilding script is available to regenerate entries that
    * should be in your worldfile but were removed by a recently discovered
    * '-e bug' or if you deleted it: run 'regenworld' as root.

    * The 2.0.47 line of portages contains an optional userpriv mode that
    * enables portage to drop root privleges and run as a normal user. It is
    * enabled via FEATURES by adding userpriv.

    * Please 'emerge sync' after merging portage to update some permissions.

    x 4.3 is masked
    you can either emerge /usr/portage/.../xfree-4.3...ebuild directly, or:
    ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~x86" emerge xfree
    if you use -u it will use the accept_keywords in everything and upgrade all software to the masked versions (i did this and now have bleeding edge glibc, binutils and the like )

    say, do you know if there is a difference between rc3 and rc4, or if i can just get all the updates done to rc3 and be on my way?

    Re:Important gentoo updates

    i think you can update rc3 to rc4.....
    just get whatever main packages rc4 comes with.... gcc, glibc etc i guess....
