Accidentally removed boost c++ libraries

Postby vfafou » Mon May 14, 2012 22:57

Hello!
I have installed Sabayon 8 KDE with all to-date updates. I would like to start programming with Qt Creator and I saw that it is good to use boost libraries. Checking if system have installed them, I accidentally pressed Remove at Rigo, and they are gone... with KDE-base etc packages. I logged in fluxbox (because kde-start lost) and I reinstalled all KDE packages. Then, I finally brought back KDE. The system is working like before removing boost, but I have lost the sound of VirtualBox Guest windows XP and windows 7. After discovering this, I' m afraid that removing boost, affected a series of packages and removed useful packages of Sabayon KDE System that I cannot determine which packages they are.
If someone knows all boost KDE dependants of Sabayon KDE (so I will be sure I have totally brought back my system) I will appreciate any help.

Thank you in advance.

How did you reinstall kde? Installing kde-meta will install pretty much every kde package known to man. That's what I would do.

You can try this to check for missing dependencies and stability :

Code: Select all
equo deptest
equo libtest

Hello and thank you for the answer...
I logged in FluxBox session and I installed kde-* via terminal with equo commands. So, this action made KDE working again.
I' m very happy for the stability provided by Sabayon. I' m coming from Ubuntu and I have to say that I have faced more serious problems caused from updates or upgrades. This is my first problem at Sabayon but it is not coming from update, it's coming from my hand!

Hello!
Thank you for your useful reply!
I've tried these two commands.
deptest didn't say something.
libtest found /usr/bin/tpgnomeapplet not matched!
What I have to do now?
Still the sound of any VirtualBox guest is lost!

Did you have a look in the virtualbox param if sound is activated ?
You can check which VirtualBox package is installed on your pc :

Code: Select all
equo query installed virtualbox

Hi!
Sound is activated to all guests I have. VirtualBox 4.1.12 packages for linux-sabayon-3.3.0 are installed. Nothing is missing. I reinstalled all packages but still same situation! Anyway, thank you for helping me!
