Stopping Entropy Diff Scan during system recompile [Solved]

Postby alkaliv2 » Wed Nov 26, 2008 11:51

I've been attempting to do a system recompile and it is going very well so far. *fingers crossed* One tiny issue I'm running into following the unofficial world update article in the wiki is that trying to streamline the updates entropy does a package scan between each package and it requires user interaction for a very, very long update process. I've looked through the entropy.conf file and didn't run across any options to disable it. I tried equo remove entropy and that just simply told me no. I them attempted to merge it (because it wasn't merged according to portage) and then emerge -C entropy. None of these methods worked. Is there something I am missing? I'd like to know that when I go to work in 3 hours that it won't just sit at a prompt the whole time. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm not new to linux but I'm definitely new to the sabayon gentoo combination and I have no problem with just being pointed to the right wiki page. Thanks in advance.

That is exactly what I was looking for thank you. The only issue remaining is that I can't figure out a way to remove entropy. You can't do it through Equo and when I emerged it and then unmerged it, it still remained. Do you know of a a method that will get rid of the entropy program?


Edit:

I googled entropy removal and I found the command emerge -C entropy equo spritz entropy-update-applet

But initially when I used that command it told me it wasn't found on my system so I threw in an equo remove entropy it told me it was a vital file that could not be removed. My next step was to emerge all four and then remove them one at a time. All I did after I emerged them was emerge -C entropy hoping to just get the text front-end out of the way. Do I need to unmerge all of them for entropy to stop showing up in my updates?

I edited my above post with the outcome of unmerging entropy.

are you emerge -C entropy equo spritz ?

I know this works as I have done it in the past

I finally got home and was able to try removing all three. Removing all of them with emerge and rebooting seems to have put a stop to entropy. I too can sleep now. Thank you very much for your help. Let the world update begin!

Hi! Is it possible however, to pass 'y' or 'yes' to the diff scan to reduce
the interactive hit on install/remove time and allow user to do something
else while the program runs??
TIA,
Have A Healthy, Prosperous Day!

I just did this:

Code: Select all
cd /usr/local/bin
sudo wget www.sabayonlinux.org/sabayon/scripts/fix_gentoosync.py
sudo chmod +x fix_gentoosync.py
sudo touch sabsync
sudo chmod +x sabsync
sudo gedit sabsync


then I added this in gedit
Code: Select all
#!/bin/bash

layman -S
emerge --sync|grep ebuild
python /usr/local/bin/fix_gentoosync.py


So now instead of emerge --sync, I run sabsync. I threw a layman sync in there just for the hell of it, and | grep ebuild to make the sync more readable. Now packages are "fixed" for the gentoosync. I haven't figured out to postpone gentoosync until emerge has finished, or at least auto-confirm it so now I can go do stuff and not have to wait for differential scans. Those are VERY annoying.
