How to update or upgrade using terminal?

Post by eor2004 » Wed Oct 16, 2013 3:03

Hi friends, I'm wondering what are the commands to update or upgrade sabayon and installed applications using the terminal, I could use rigo but I want to learn to do things using CLI or terminal, thanks before hand.

Saludos:

I suggest that you read the wiki about entropy. There you will find that equo is very easy to use and when in doubt just ask the man. For now stay away from Portage which is Gentoo package manager.

yo vivo en bayamon, y abandone a windows desde el 2008, e usado muchas distribuciones linux pero sabayon es una de mis favoritas porque arranca rapido apaga rapido sus repositorios estan al dia y tienen muchas aplicaciones que en otras distros tengo que bajar e instalar manualmente.

Yo viví en Carolina pero soy de Ponce. En el 2009 probé la familia de Ubuntu hasta conocer el software libre, entonces adopté distros que fueran 100% libres como Trisquel. Solo me queda una HTPC con Xubuntu/XBMC para ver televisión con hulu y demás. "Por fin me liberé del cable"

Sabayon pasó a ser mi distro favorita gracias a Entropy/equo y otro plus es emerge, que por ejemplo use para instalar xtide ya que no estaba en entropy.

Un gusto saludarte.

Mira que casualidad, mi esposa es tambien de Ponce, sector La Playa, calle delfin, cerca de el cementerio, cerca tambien de una cancha bajo techo la cual no recuerdo el nombre y al lado de la cancha hay una estacion de policia estatal.

Ah, por cierto, gracias por la info en cuanto a actualizar usando comandos, utilize los siguientes comandos y actualizo lo mas bien, gracias:

equo update
equo install entropy equo
equo upgrade
equo deptest
equo conf update
equo libtest

The kernel is not upgraded using the above commands, so, to upgrade the kernel, you can use the kernel-switcher command:

Code: Select all

# equo search linux-sabayon # Find out the version of the latest kernel image.
# kernel-switcher switch linux-sabayon-<x>.<y>-r<z> # Upgrade to latest kernel.
# eselect kernel list # Just a double-check that symlink is pointing to the latest kernel.
# eselect kernel set <n> # Where n is list number of latest kernel. Only need to do this if wrong one is selected.

Don't forget to have a look at the Entropy article in the SL Wiki. It explains command-line upgrading in detail.

The kernel is a major vital thing and shouldn't be touched unless you know what your are doing. Did you remove all the kernels you had or just remove the current one? If you have other kernels, did you try booting it by pointing grub to those kernels?

Always use the package manager for removing software and adding software. Once you start messing with manually doing things with removing and adding software you become on your own as we do not know what steps and methods you did to break your system.

If you manually removed all your kernels and can't boot, you're gonna have to grab a live usb and boot up with that and than chroot in. Once in, you should be able to install a linux-sabayon kernel. The kernel should be the same version as the drivers for your hardware, otherwise upon rebooting you may not have X and hardware not working.

I can't stress enough, when messing with kernels you got to know what you are doing. Triple check and make sure kernel/drivers/grub are all pointing to same kernel before rebooting.
