How do I add sabayon-weekly repo to the daily build?[Solved]

Postby Solmyr » Fri Aug 17, 2012 15:59

I had trouble getting Sabayon 9 KDE to boot correctly with my computer so I tried the daily build and it installed without any problems.
I noticed that the sabayon-weekly repositories isn't added to this build.
How do I add all the mirrors? (I wan't all the repos to be like in the official S9)
I tried searching for an answer but did not find anything.

there's allready a discussion about this.
https://forum.sabayon.org/viewtopic.php?f=76&t=26071
It's also well documented on the Wiki:

Im sure I saw on the forum that the daily iso's are missing the entropy_sabayon-weekly file in /etc/entropy/repositories.conf.d/

Anyway, if it is missing here is is ...

http://pastebin.sabayon.org/pastie/10259

Remember to do

Code: Select all
#equo repo mirrorsort sabayon-weekly


...and to enable it in repositories.conf :-)

Yea, the daily is missing the sabayon-weekly conf file under /etc/entropy/repositories.conf.d so I couldn't just enable it.

I also made a search on the forums for "sabayon-weekly" and didn't receive any hits actually.
I also tried to google it.

Thanks for the help btw, I got it to work. =)

I copied the mirrorlist and saved it into a file; "/etc/entropy/repositories.conf.d/entropy_sabayon-weekly".

Then I made an update using
Code: Select all
equo update

and then
Code: Select all
equo repo disable sabayonlinux.org

and
Code: Select all
equo repo mirrorsort sabayon-weekly


It seems to work but I didn't edit the "/etc/entropy/repositories.conf" file in any way.
Is it necessary?

When I ran equo upgrade it seemed to automatically downgrade KDE from version 4.9 to 4.8.4 since 4.9 wasn't in the repo.

But it seems to work anyway.

Hello,
I've always edited repositories.conf & done it that way, also I had to force an update to recognise the new repo:

Code: Select all
#equo update --force


If you see this when running equo update you're using the weekly repo:

Code: Select all
equo update
>>  @@ Repositories synchronization ...
>>   # Sabayon Linux Official Repository
>>   # Repository URL: http://pkg.sabayon.org/standard/sabayon-weekly/database/amd64/5
>>   # Repository local path: /var/lib/entropy/client/database/amd64/sabayon-weekly/standard/amd64/5
>>   # Repository API: 3
>>    Attention: repository is already up to date.

If it's downgraded kde, I suspect you've got the weekly repo enabled. I would have probably done:

Code: Select all
#equo upgrade --ask


& you'd have seen it wanted to downgrade kde. Overnight tonight, the weekly repo will be poplulated by the sabayonlinux.org repo, so you'll download kde again :-)
If you'd waited until Sunday you'd have had little or no updates to do, but you've resolved the problem anyway which is the main thing.
Please can you now edit the title of your 1st post & put [Solved} at the end, it'll save one of the admins doing it for you.
Cheers.

It recognized the new repo as soon as I did "equo update" no --force needed =)
On the "official release" is sabayon-weekly the only active repo?
I deactivated sabayonlinux.org since I'd like better stability over bleeding edge.

Thanks for all the help though. =)
Will mark as solved.
