If you cancel portage and later rerun the same command the specified package will compile again. So if you e.g. start to run emerge www-client/firefox, cancel it and rerun the command again, merging www-client/firefox will start from scratch. Note that the dependency list is generated when starting emerge, so when you missed some dependency in the first run ...

/etc/rc.d/rc.local Take a look at the rc.local file on your system, whatever you put in there will be run whenever your system boots. You could also set a cron job, based on knowing in advance when the system will reboot, which could remove your command from rc.local once the machine is done booting. You can also put whatever you want in an init script in ...

When a package maintainer creates a version of a package, the repoman tool takes the input files, usually a tar archive with source code and the ebuild itself, and calculate a number of hashes on it. This information is then recorded in a packages Manifest file. Before portage unpacks and compiles the package, it verifies that all these hashes are accurate. ...

SHA256 SHA512 WHIRLPOOL size is a list of digest that are verified and the smiley represents a successful installation of the package, i.e. the package is installed and all hashes and file sizes are matching the expected values. So WHIRLPOOL refers to a hash algorithm, similarly to the preceding SHA hashes.

I found this advice; it solved the problem for me. In summary, do the following: sudo apt-get install libperl-dev sudo apt-get install libgtk2.0-dev Doing this automatically installed all required glib-2 packages on my system. Hope it helps.

(CRDA is an acronym for Central Regulatory Domain Agent, see the kernel wiki for more information ) Channel 12 and 13 e.g. are only available outside North America due to regulatory issues, not all channels are permitted for wireless use everywhere. Channel 14 for example is only available in Japan. Check this ...

As a Gentoo user, as my regular desktop, I have to say that both the answers here, are only half correct. [I] sys-libs/glibc Available versions: (2.2) 2.13-r4^s 2.14.1-r3^s 2.15-r3^s 2.16.0^s 2.17^s ~2.18-r1^s ~2.19^s 2.19-r1^s ~2.20^s ~2.20-r1^s 2.20-r2^s **2.21^s **9999^s {debug gd hardened multilib nscd profile selinux suid systemtap vanilla ...

Unlike other linux distros, you don't just get a Gentoo iso, hit setup and sit back, having a coffee, while setup does everything. Instead, you grab a stage and start building and compiling you OS. Luckily, for those who only need to get a feeling of Gentoo, there's a live release from time to time (already compiled and put together). In your case, you ...

Well, all Gentoo releases are 2.2. Since Gentoo is not a distribution that has releases (i.e. in stepped increments), you won't find that around. Gentoo is a rolling release, which means all packages are continuously updated, there's no global system version like Ubuntu or Fedora. In short /etc/gentoo_release is irrelevant of the system Ā«versionĀ». What you ...

More searching suggested that logging out and back in to create a new desktop session would resolve the problem. I tried it and it worked. Apparently, even though gconfd-2 was running, it wasn't hooked up to D-BUS properly.

On Gentoo I use PulseAudio's built-in equalizer. Any further info can be found here: https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/PulseAudio#Equalizer

The programs you're having trouble with are all run using the dev-lang/python-exec script wrapper, which appears to have been somehow corrupt. To attempt to re-install that package, assuming nothing else was severely harmed, you can try (adjust the version number to match your installed packages): /usr/bin/python2.7 /usr/lib/python-exec/python2.7/emerge ...

Ok, I worked out that even though I was setting gksu to use sudo for authentication, this was all irrelevant as the shortcuts that I was using in the Xfce menu were starting applications using polkit and not gksu. From the Gentoo Wiki on polkit, I did: sudo bash -c "cat > /etc/polkit-1/rules.d/10-admin.rules" <<EOL ...

You're on the right track, just the wrong command. Try: Enable sudo by installing app-admin/sudo....Done Configure sudo using visudo. Set the appropriate options .... Hopefully Done Use gksudo app-name instead of gksu app-name. In gentoo, gksudo is part of the package x11-libs/gksu, and the actual man page is at gksudo man page. As always make sure ...

gksu acts like su, not sudo. That's why it asks you root password. Try to run gksudo instead if available. If not, you can run gksu --sudo-mode. Also, from the man page: Also notice that the library will decide if it should use su or sudo as backend using the /apps/gksu/sudo-mode gconf key, if you call the gksu command. You can force the backend by ...
