!!! Problems have been detected with your world file
!!! Please run emaint --check world

!!! Ebuilds for the following packages are either all
!!! masked or don't exist:
net-dialup/slmodem:2.6.26-sabayon x11-drivers/ati-drivers:2.6.25-sabayon-r1 net-wireless/ndiswrapper:2.6.26-sabayon net-misc/et131x:2.6.26-sabayon media-video/manslide net-wireless/madwifi-ng:2.6.26-sabayon app-portage/etcproposals net-wireless/acx:2.6.26-sabayon app-emulation/virtualbox-modules:2.6.26-sabayon x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers:2.6.26-sabayon dev-util/cogito app-emulation/virtualbox-modules:2.6.25-sabayon-r1 x11-drivers/ati-drivers:2.6.26-sabayon net-dns/resolvconf-gentoo media-video/gspcav1:2.6.26-sabayon

Emaint--check world doesnt fix the problem. Should i just unemerge all packages that are casuing the error?

emerge won't find them if I recall correctly so you should equo remove the packages and than emerge back the ones you need.

Codchop, Is you mixing Portage with Entropy Installers?
this is for testing purposes, it is not so well.
you may have some problems in Databanks...
you may re-merge ou re-install with entropy, only the packs that you may use, or your kernel used, for example, if your sabayon
was updated to 26 kernel, some 25 kernel files, may be no longer necessary.
other examples are some packs> example.... even in Gentoo, Cogito is obsolete....
when you update the git system,git packages, webgit etc this substitute Cogito.....

Hi, eodchop, do you are:

Code: Select all
#emerge --update world

I have the same errors when try update system with console. I update system with Spritz, but emerge call gentoo.org (mirror of gentoo), an with spritz, te update is with garr.it , a Sabayon mirror.

May be that update with emerge not is possible

it is, you just need to know what you are doing - that is why I stress over and over and over that people need to learn the package manager first before attempting such things. You need to understand portage to be able to work with it. Stick with entropy for world updates till you become better with portage.

Do a portage world update isn't going to gain you much unless you are running custom configs
