revdep-rebuild blows up my puter...

So a brief search got me this....

I started revdep-rebuild 4 hours ago and it's still listing the thousands of files that are not owned by any package and are broken. I've had this happen over and over and I'm growing tired of having to restore the file system and start over - especially since every incident fails to provide any clues to me about why this is happening."



revdep rebuild is not for entropy

if you run into disaster - start a support topic and provide as much info as possible - hardware and log files


Why, when doing # equo update && world --ask Does it, about midway through, and typically after a gnome base update, tell me that I must run # revdep-rebuild ? I am a noob and things have been going my way for the most part but my last update about a week ago was brutal and took me hours to un"F"... Now I have the same delemma as Skippy above, revdep-rebuild has ran and is now compiling sys-devel/gcc, and has been for several hours, this is 1/2 items to be installed.

What the heck?

You have to remember, entropy is portage based so you are gonna see messages like that. Do not mix portage commands with entropy. Stick with the entropy commands

equo --help or man equo

Well I did a revdep-rebuild and nearly the same thing happened to me except my system didn't crash. I just had some errors and now wondering what I should do about it. I get the following messages at the end:

Now I'm afraid to reboot or close the shell until I do something but don't know what yet..... :shock:

Going to search the forum to see if there's anything on these issues.

why are you running portage stuff on entropy?

Probably because equo tends to show messages like 'You should run revdep-rebuild now!', without warning the user that it's a Portage command?
People just don't read wikis/howtos until something goes wrong, that's the way the average user's mind works ;)
