Downgrade subversion from 1.7 to 1.6

Postby aquarius » Fri Dec 30, 2011 12:21

Hi,

is there any way to downgrade subversion from 1.7 to 1.6?
What I did. I removed dev-vcs/subversion-1.7.1 and masked it. But when I try to install subversion, equo finds only the masked version:
Code: Select all
aruba ~ # equo install subversion --ask
>> !!! Every package matching subversion is masked.
>>     # Reason: user package.mask
>>       <> atom: dev-vcs/subversion-1.7.1 in sabayon-weekly
>> No packages found.


So, an I missing something? Or downgrade is not possible? :(

Thanks in advance!

It is only going to be possible to downgrade a package if earlier versions of that package are in the Entropy repository. In the case of dev-vcs/subversion, there is no 1.6 version of that package in the Entropy repository: https://packages.sabayon.org/quicksearch?q=subversion. Therefore, if you want to downgrade to a version that is not available in Entropy, you'd need to use Portage (assuming the earlier version is still available in Portage, that is).

Thanks for the answer!
Now at least I know that the easiest possible approach won't work :)
