:D :D :D :D :D This is an awesome app! Keep up the great work. It is BY FAR the best GUI portage front end I have ever seen.

Cheers!!

Portage removed the plugin-directory if no plugins have been installed. Added "keepdir"-call to all ebuilds. So please update the ebuilds and try a re-emerge



update your Portato - I installed it on a fresh install and it add entries to the Kmenu under Settings menu - very nice!

Two things (copied verbatim from gentoo forums):

First: New Release (excuse the delay of the announcement):
New Release: 0.7.3

Changes from version 0.7.0:
- Added systray and desktop entries
- Added confirmation dialogs for quitting while the emerge queue is not empty
- Ability to show packages by installation status
- Moved the gtk-syntax-highlight plugin to another package
- Improved QtTerminal a bit

Known Issues:
The QtTerminal is not the best one. Especially while emerging large packages, where a lot of information has to be written in a short time, Qt tends to freeze. Solutions are welcome ;)

Second: Ebuild change:
I applied for getting Portato into the sunrise overlay. Therefore some changes had to be done for the ebuilds:

- portatosourceview moved from "app-portage" to "dev-util"
- noroot has been renamed to userpriv

To have the version numbers in sync between the two overlays, I have not incremented the revision. I would ask you to update your ebuilds via
Code: Select all
layman -s portato
to avoid later conflicts. :)


So far - Necoro

More Good News

Necoro :
Okay - portato is now in the sunrise overlay. If you are using it already, you can now deinstall the portato-overlay unless you want to use the 9999 (svn) version.

If you run into a problem running portato after updating or installing portato

make sure your python is 2.4.4-r4, if not update to it and than do

emerge pygobject pygtk

Portato should now be working.

News
SVN Version:
Portato now shows the masking reason as a tooltip of the "Masked" checkbox.

What am I doing wrong?

I have added, deleted and readded the sunrise overlay with layman synced it several times, but I just can't see portato-0.7.3 in eix. What gives? I am sure that I am doing something stoopid, please let me know what it is.

Thanks
