Re: equo depends on tons of stuff.

lxnay:
This gets even more interesting when the dependency is not at the linker level (say, python, perl, php, you-name-it, packages)
good point, I've never tried to understand all the interpreted language issues, but there certainly have been some.

Re: equo depends on tons of stuff.

Thanks. As a long time user of sabayon(certainly since before it was exactly rolling release) and gentoo and... anyway, I understand more rigorous depenancy connection between binaries, although maybe my question was more inspired by my growing frustration with rolling release than my understanding ...

Re: equo depends on tons of stuff.

I'm getting clues to reverse engineer my own answer here by look at the package graphs. entropy gets pulled as a reverse dependancy on equo. rigo and rigo-daemon get pulled as reverse dependancies on entropy and magneto bits including magneto-kde get pulled as reverse deps from those. With --relaxed...

Re: Sabayon Frozen - Community Repositories

This is great. Thanks! Rolling release is fun, but for real work, when you need a new package now and can't risk downtime short term, it can be a serious and routine annoyance, usually just meaning you can't get the package you want when you want it. Ok you asked for suggestions. An obvious enhancem...

Re: equo depends on tons of stuff.

right, relaxed = calm and relates to dependencies. I got that. I was hoping to beg a more specific answer but beggars can't be choosers either. Anyway, I just noticed DanySK's post about frozen repositories which is now stickied. This is certainly interesting in the context of my related concern, so...

Re: equo depends on tons of stuff.

By the way, what more precisely does --relaxed do? Does it ignore all reverse dependencies? Does it just omit dependency upgrades where they are available but the installed version already satisfies the dependency anyway? a and b? Does it do something more arbitrary akin to --nodeps? None of the abo...

Re: equo depends on tons of stuff.

Ok, that seems better. Thanks. I guess I'm triggering a snowball of reverse dependancies without --relaxed. Equo example aside(or maybe not), it's one more reason why rolling release can be an even bigger pain. Anytime you want to update or install any little thing, you end up needing to update half...

equo depends on tons of stuff.

It's probably been a few months since I updated anything. I went to install something simple, which worked, but equo mentioned that I should update it, which was probably true, so I did equo install equo --pretend and I get a huge list of dependancies including lots of gnome stuff, kde stuff, X stuf...

Re: Fixing the world file

Ok so it's the same as gentoo from what you say (this wasn't always true, or it didn't always work at least) except the user can't modify it? It sure would be nice to give the user access to this list and even to be able to edit a list and use the edited version to configure a new install, just as o...

Re: Fixing the world file

And how in the world does sabayon make recursive decisions about what to uninstall anyway? (my point in my post some years ago) Does it just guess that if you're removing package A and package B is a dependency of A and nothing else that surely you must not want package B anymore? Actually it seems(...
