Updates on sabayon weekly

Postby angelus_ira » Thu Jan 12, 2012 22:09

Hi, first i want to say thanks to the people involved on sabayon. I have been using for a long time and now i am using sabayon only (before was win 7 and sabayon).

I have a question, on the past weeks there have not been any updates using equo (or entrophy) on my system. I want to know if the problem is my PC or there were not any updates.

Sorry for the english....

I dont really know about limbo, I asked same and have been reply "use at your own risk".
I would say if you dont matter to crash out your system from time to time it is ok.
BTW there's a small pb on todays update.
After update I got this message using equo :
sabayon ~ # equo query installed glibc
invalid filesystem encoding ANSI_X3.4-1968, must be UTF-8.
Make sure to set LC_ALL, LANG, LANGUAGE to valid UTF-8 values.
...

You can fix with sorting out local and reinstall glibc (or maybe run locale-gen) see this thread http://forum.sabayon.org/viewtopic.php?f=76&t=22105

Basically you can have trouble with regular updates (never seen very bad ones since 2 years of sabayon) but maybe with limno you increase frequency and severity of those !
I am using sabayon as desktop so it could be ok for me (I have other distros installed in case ;-))

Do you use RSS reader?

you can follow updates easily with RSS reader

for example on the weekly amd64
http://pkg.sabayon.org/standard/sabayon ... pdates.rss

weekly x86
http://pkg.sabayon.org/standard/sabayon ... pdates.rss

You can do same with each repo, that way you can see when and what has been done. I have been running limbo for years and find it very stable.

just since we are on the topic of updates and i am new to sabayon do the weekly updates come out on pretty much the same day every week?

More than 100 updates now :D .

One question, on this update, i am getting instaled man-pages on a lot of languages (japanese, russian... before i never got asked this). Is this intentional?

To work around this, before installing all the updates:

Code: Select all
equo install man-pages --nodeps
