Revert to older versoin of a package?

Post by bmcatt » Wed May 09, 2018 18:10

Is there any way, just using equo, to revert to an older version of a package?

Specifically, I recently did an upgrade that included www-client/google-chrome going to version 66.0.3359.117. Now, I'm getting window render problems fairly often. (This is under XFCE.) Typically, this happens when I've got a window minimized and then restore it. A "quick" refresh / reload solves the problem, but it's rather annoying.

I see that there's a newer version upstream on the gentoo side, but until that flows down to the sabayon repositories, I was thinking I could just revert back to the previous version (hopefully), but I don't see anything about whether or not that's even possible.

Please - don't suggest doing anything that involves portage. I'd rather keep this just entropy.

Thanks in advance!

There's a chance if the older version is still available on https://packages.sabayon.org/.

Looking at the packages available, you can not downgrade anymore, but possibly update to www-client/google-chrome-66.0.3359.139.

Code: Select all

$ wget "http://best.sabayon.org/entropy/standard/sabayonlinux.org/packages-nonfree/amd64/5/www-client/www-client:google-chrome-66.0.3359.139.095476063b04d7aeb7d90057a11f3b9df12e2264~0.tbz2"
# equo i -a www-client\:google-chrome-66.0.3359.139.095476063b04d7aeb7d90057a11f3b9df12e2264~0.tbz2

Oooh... I had always sort of wondered how to install an individual (downloaded) package, rather than simply grabbing it out of the repositories. Already I learned something.

I'll try this right now.

Thanks!!!!
