Update Script

Postby wolfden » Sat Jul 28, 2007 13:34

Gentoo newsletter features a script for helping people do world updates. I had used this in previous version of SL and it does work.

How to install:
Code: Select all
# wget -O /sbin/updatescript.sh http://phpfi.com/241954?download
# chmod +x /sbin/updatescript.sh


Running It:
Code: Select all
# updatescript.sh

(or, if you want to sync the portage tree first)
Code: Select all
# updatescript.sh -s



Now this is no miracle script, you still have to work out any blocks and bumps first so the script will run, it will report any issues it has just like a normal emerge -upDN --world. It will automatically move on if a package fails and continue till done and than if I remember correctly it will try to re-emerge the failed packages and than it will ask for revdep-rebuild to be run once done. I suggest trying it out and seeing how you like it.
