Updating the system

Post by nomko » Mon Dec 30, 2013 1:48

Hi,

I just updated m y system and some kind of terminal look-a-like window was opened. After a few minutes a button apperaed on the right sude with the text OK, thanks. I assume that when clicking on this button, the update procedure was finished. But the temrinal look-a-like didn disappear. The last line is:
>> :: (100%) Calculating updates ::
Is this correct? Can i manually close that terminal window?

Thanks!

What have you used for updating the system? Rigo or a terminal?
Anyway after the update in rigo you may see a terminal like the one you have described. It's all ok in that case.

Just to be clear for the future the terminal update routine in Sabayon via terminal is the following
Update your repo

Code: Select all

sudo equo update
Install all the updates

Code: Select all

sudo equo upgrade
Check if some config file has changed

Code: Select all

sudo equo conf update
For some extra security you can run a dependencies test

Code: Select all

sudo equo deptest
and a library test

Code: Select all

sudo equo libtest
AMD Athlon(tm) II X2 250 Processor
4 GB DDR3 1600 Mhz
Nvidia Geforce 9800 GT
Sabayon Linux x64 KDE Limbo

Thanks Provia!

I like to update my system using the terminal since i'm more familiar with updating my system using a terminal as i Always did under Ubuntu/Mint. I'll keep those commands in mind!

Thanks again!

And yes i updated my system using Rigo and clicked the Detail button which eventually shows the "Rigo terminal progress".
