Hi!

I have

Code: Select all
ignore-spm-downgrades = enable


in my
Code: Select all
/etc/entropy/client.conf
.

However, when I do

Code: Select all
equo u -a
╠  @@ Calculating System Updates:
╠  @@ Calculating dependencies...
╠  @@ These are the packages that would be installed:

it still wants to downgrade libpcre and libxcb from spm to sabayon binaries. I have emerged these packages
manually using portage as a requirement for qt5 with changed use flags. I don't want entropy to overwrite
these packages. How can i prevent these downgrades as equo ignores that config setting?

Sure, I'm doing

Code: Select all
equo rescue spmsync && equo up --force && equo u -a --purge

Oh, note that the packages are supposed to be "reinstalled" [R] not downgraded [D]. But still, how can I make entropy happy and accept these packages. Essentially what I did was to emerge these packages with USE flags that were missing for the original packages..

mask the packages in sabayon-weekly repos.

Code: Select all
# equo mask dev-libs/libpcre-8.34::sabayon-weekly x11-libs/libxcb-1.10::sabayon-weekly

Great, this works (for the moment :D).
