No longer maintained by this distro what to do [Solved]

Postby notzippy » Sun Jul 08, 2012 15:51

Hi

A recent update indicated that package "rtl8192se Firmware" was no longer maintained by this distro and it may require "manual review". Can someone point out some doc which shows how I can do this ? Is this done with portage ? If so any pointers on how ?

thanks
Nz

Use entropy;
Code: Select all
equo remove package-name --ask
where "package-name" is that given in the notes at the end of the update.
