TOPIC: Run 'emerge portage' now!

Run 'emerge portage' now! 2 years 8 months ago #1432

I have just installed toorox gnome and done a sync with potato, the end result in the potato console says 'an update for portage is available. It is highly recommended to update portage now, before any other packages are updated.' 'To update portage run 'emerge portage' now.'

So i opened the terminal and issued 'sudo emerge portage'. Said i needed to be Superuser? How?

hi, get2gether,
open the terminal and type in su, enter and type in your admin password, enter.
Now you are using the terminal as superuser.

kind regards
fynn

Thanks for that fynn, it did the job nicely.
I have browsed the gentoo forum and wiki, there are some good lists of commands for use with portage, i assume these are relevant for toorox? Is there anything i need to know or do before installing any software? The media-libs package is good to go? What about reading wmv files and encrypted dvd's?

yes, use these commands for toorox.
imho make a system-upgrade before install software: eix-sync && emerge -avuND world
maybe there are some problems with useflags ;)
