I try to explain you, that these packages that does not support any more, in the final version.
So there aren't new version for those packages.If does not support the last version why i have to put or keep the older version?
I have in my system the package phpmyadmin.If you check from official site http://www.phpmyadmin.net/home_page/
you will see that the last version is 3.5.5.
Then i enter in my terminal:
- Code: Select all
equo search phpmyadmin
and i see that the last version of the phpmyadmin is the 3.5.3
And now when i am going to do update i get the message that for example this package phpmyadmin 3.5.3 does not support any more for your system.Please remove it for your own safety
. I don't have other previous version for this package in my system.
My question is that if i remove this package phpmyadmin 3.5.3 (which is the only and the last version where i have in my system which developing from sabayon developers)i will not have any more this phpmyadmin and i need it.
So i guess that the solution is if i should ignore this message or to remove it and i have to install phpmyadmin manual or in an other case(other software) to do a compile.
But why entropy says this messages?
I didn't see similar message in any of package managment from any distribution.
I think that now i am clear and you can understant my message.
