Is everything OK with updates?

Postby Hirager » Fri Dec 16, 2011 19:44

Considering Sabayon is rolling distribution, I expect KDE 4.7.4 to be packaged already. I am actually disturbed by lack of updates for the last week. Is my local configuration or mirror wrong? Or maybe are developers fighting to prepare a particularly complex update? I am particularly interested in installation of new AMD driver (11.12) and KDE (4.7.4), as I have a bunch of bugs I hope to have fixed by those releases.

By default, you have to weekly repo so you get updates weekly.
kde 4.7.4 is already in limbo repo. ati-drivers is still 11.11

Yep I am surprised no updates recently, is it pre christmas season making everybody busy far from computers ?
I checked http://packages.sabayon.org/ and saw some updates today but not yet available indeed.
Also I cant find a "by date" browse option, I looked for KDE and found 4.7.4 available in limbos.
Soon here I guess.

I must have missed something !
Weekly repository are out since some month but is it default now ?
I am running my laptop since 5.4 without changing repos, does it means I am now on weekly base update ?
I can just go to limbo to have more frequent updates ?

Check /etc/entropy/repositories.conf or with sulfur to see which repo/s are you using.
sabayonlinux.org is the standard repo; sabayon-weekly is the one that gets the updates from previous one every week and sabayon-limbo has things that can explode ;)

Limbo can be that dangerous or can even not be that dangerous, they are meant as testing. In other words, if something blows up, you have been warned :)
