Gentoo Profile Change from 13 to 17

Hi All.

It seems that the Gentoo profile needs updating from 13 to 17. If true a rebuild of @ world is required and will genup support this ?

A copy of the news item can be found at
https://www.gentoo.org/support/news-ite ... files.html

Thanks

Re: Gentoo live-USB for Bubba|2 updated (Linux 4.9.16 LTS)

Hi Sakaki. Yes the "genup" script completed last night, the only draw back was that the --depclean removed the apps-editor/nano which was not in @world. I have emerged it back with the --no-replace option. If required I can post the large log file. I now need to setup the email account as your scrip...

Re: Gentoo live-USB for Bubba|2 updated (Linux 4.9.16 LTS)

The hard disc was the original one supplied by excito which I had the previous gentoo version copied onto it. As the previous script failed I did a rsync of the files on the USB stick to the hard drive and it is very possible that a incorrect file was copied in error. At the start of this process I ...

Re: Gentoo live-USB for Bubba|2 updated (Linux 4.9.16 LTS)

Hi Sakaki. Success after a few problems and Kernel Panics. The usb stick booted correctly after I removed the hard disk and installed itself. I suspect it was picking up the older version image files on the hard disc and not the updated ones on the usb stick. I decided to start the build again as al...

Hi Sakaki

Unfortunately the image fails to boot needed to rescue the main system which has updated and now also fails to boot.

Re: Gentoo live-USB for Bubba|2 updated (rev 1 boards supported)

Great News. I will change the make.conf file to update from the website. I decide yesterday to remove the packages I did not need. Unfortunately I cannot stop apache and cups from installing itself again. I suspect that a missed dependencies, still need finding. Also in playing a noticed that gentoo...

Re: Gentoo live-USB for Bubba|2 updated (rev 1 boards supported)

Hi Gordon. I wondered if removing mysql / mariadb would work, but with my limited use of gentoo they appeared to have dependencies with other modules, that I decided to leave them. All I required is a basic setup with file access for use as an 2nd backup, which I hope to transfer to an ssd drive. If...

Re: Gentoo live-USB for Bubba|2 updated (rev 1 boards supported)

Thanks Gordon. I had to add options "-u" and "--keep-going" to skip problems with DBD-mysql-4.41.0 and Error-0.170.240. Running perl-cleaner --all fails due to dependencies with mariadb. I am not sure what to do next so running emerge --deep --with-bdeps=y --changed-use --update --pretend --verbose ...

Re: Gentoo live-USB for Bubba|2 updated (rev 1 boards supported)

Progress I hope. Following the details in the above posts, I now have GCC updated and the binary files saved on a different disc. I cannot emerge @ world as to many error messages are listed, so to reduce the log size I ran emerge on @system, which failed due to perl. More Google searching with vari...

Re: Gentoo live-USB for Bubba|2 updated (rev 1 boards supported)

It's Alive Again I decided to obtain a serial lead to see what was happening during the boot process and bingo the unit booted at the 1st attempt from an usb image. At present I have manually copied the live usb image onto a hard disc as the script failed, changed the fstab file and rebooted the mac...

Re: Gentoo live-USB for Bubba|2 updated (rev 1 boards supported)

The End.

Unfortunately I no longer have a working B2 to update. The hard disc has failed totally and I am unable to boot into a clean Gentoo Live-USB stick, which I have used in the past.

Thanks for all your Help, I will miss having my B2 as the family Nas Drive.

Regards

Andy

Hi Sakaki.
