Emerge updating

Emerge updating

Re-emerge the complaining package to fix this issue. Finally, follow the general upgrade instructions for updating the profile. Always study the list of packages to be cleaned for any obvious mistakes. It is primarily used for installing packages, and emerge can automatically handle any dependencies that the desired package has. This flag disables it regardless.

Generally, such migrations are not mandatory, and systems can continue to use the old profile - just update the packages as explained in the Gentoo Handbook. If there is nothing for portage to do, then portage will exit with a message and a success condition.

All the binary packages must be available at the time of dependency calculation or emerge will simply abort. As an example, this catches updates in libraries that are not directly listed in the dependencies of a package. This is accomplished by looking at each installed package and separating the installed versions by slot.

When a profile migration is

No specific action needs to be performed. Make sure Portage is updated before changing the profile. Some architectures require a bit more actions to be completed in order to convert from one profile to another. Even power users from other distributions probably share the same feelings, given the popularity and spread of tools like apt or apt-rpm which make it possible to have quick and frequent updates.

More information is available in the alpha release notes. If this option is given without an argument, emerge will not limit the number of jobs that can run simultaneously.

If this option

This will also update direct dependencies which may not be what you want. Sync operations are now performed using the new emaint sync module. Adding one of the additional arguments listed above will give you more specific help information on that subject.

Another reason this may occur is if a package you are trying to emerge requires an older version of a package in order to emerge successfully. This is why we call these cascaded profiles.

When a profile migration is apparent, then the upgrade has to be executed manually. This option can be used to update the world file without rebuilding the packages. This process populates the cache database that portage uses for pre-parsed lookups of package data. The resume history is capable of storing two merge lists.

If any configuration changes are required, then they will be displayed after the merge list and emerge will immediately abort. Gentoo's way of getting and installing applications.
