On my freshly installed 3.4e version, /var/lib/portage/world only contains 1,162 entries. But if I do
Code: Select all
equery -C -q list | less
I get 1,842 entries. Many of the missing packages are old, stale packages no longer in Gentoo's or Sabayon's portage tree. Others are active packages that have updates, but a world update won't pick up on packages not in the world file.
Has anybody found a way to get these packages into the world list? I checked the Gentoo forums, but the methods I found were all out-dated.
