Equo and Portage Don't Get Along

Postby wsx11 » Sat Jul 25, 2009 6:00

Hello all,
I've recently switched my laptop from Gentoo to Sabayon just to try it out. I used portage to install a few packages (notably php) which Entropy's repository didn't have configured quite as well as I'd like. When I go to do an equo world, entropy wants to "downgrade" the packages from portage to the entropy version.

ignore-spm-downgrades|enable does not seem to work.

I have done all of the gentoosync steps multiple times to no avail.

Thanks for your help.

(I'm running the most recent Sabayon/Entropy, installed from the 4.1K disk and hopped to 5)

mask them in entropy with the package.mask file for entropy?

When I mask them in /etc/entropy/packages/package.mask (by version or entirely) entropy exits with

"Every Package matching ... has been masked." Normally this is what I'd expect, but it doesn't seem to be detecting the portage packages at all.

Thanks.

It may not be the most elegant solution, but I added

Code: Select all
*/*-r9999


to entropy's package.mask and it would appear to be working.

This will likely cause problems later down the road, but I'll deal with those as they come.

I could mark this thread [SOLVED] but the issue of ignore-spm-downgrades not working still persists.
