kernel upgrade via switcher [Solved]

Postby kage » Fri Aug 24, 2012 20:49

Hi,

Did a fresh install of 9 kde.

Want to install virtualbox. In order to do that I want to upgrade the kernel
I tried for several days now but still the same problem.

So I did:
Code: Select all
kernel-switcher switch sys-kernel/linux-sabayon-3.5

I am prompted to accept some terms itlooks like this and then:
Code: Select all

then it searches every mirror for this specific package

Code: Select all
>>   ## Geaggregeerde download: 1 item
>>    # [1] na.mirror.garr.it => sys-fs:zfs-20120730#3.5.0-sabayon~2.tbz2
>>    ## ( mirror #1 ) Fout tijdens het downloaden vanaf: http://na.mirror.garr.it - data niet beschikbaar op deze spiegel.


Eventually after checking all mirrors the operations stops and the upgrade is not completed

What is wrong with this specific package?

Hello Kage.

Did you do a
Code: Select all
equo update && equo upgrade --ask

before switching to the new kernel?
Also, in order to use VirtualBox you don't have to install a new kernel first.
You can install VirtualBox for your current kernel, using the "--nodeps" flag,
as described in the Wiki:

Hi Batvink

thnx for replying

Yes I did update / upgrade

I know i don't have too but after a fresh install I usually upgrade to the newest kernel in order to see if I encounter problems.

In the future when upgrading the kernel its more than likely I will run into the same probs as I do now
Thats why I want to tackle these things right after a fresh install.

sys-fs:zfs-20120730#3.5.0-sabayon~2.tbz2 isn't in the weekly repository so it appears to be a dependency problem - possibly because you are using zfs. I'm sure someone can give you a reason but the package just isn't there.

Hi,

Got this one solved.
Thnx for your reply's
As for zfs: I was'nt using zfs. Not that i was aware of.

After the weekend iwasn't able to use kernel switcher with a simple 3.5
I searched the repo and found version 3.5-r3
When using that the upgrade went fine
