I don't know much about emerge/portage, but as far as equo/entropy goes, I know that all you did is update your local repository so that it's aware with the recent changes in repository. In other words, after "equo update", all you did is syncronize your local repository... basically, you just told sulfur (among others) to fetch the list of the latest packages from the sabayon repositories (NOT install them).
In order to do a full update you should have done:
- Code: Select all
equo update && equo world
Sometimes, you may need to do an "equo conf update" afterwards, but you will see if that is necessary at the end of the output of "equo world" (since this would be your first update, you will definitely be asked to do one of those).
Like the others said, it's better to stick with one of the package managers (I personally prefer entropy), but read the wiki beforehand (as a general rule, like they say, RTFM when jumping to an unknown tool)
