TOPIC: Upgrading a hard disk installation

Upgrading a hard disk installation 6 years 1 day ago #12

I've managed to install to hard disk and get things working in English. My usual gentoo upgrades consists of:
emerge --sync
emerge -Duav system
emerge -Duav world
Do you have a recommended procedure using overlay?
layman -S
is all I know, and emerge seems to ignore it.
Porthole shows later versions in overlay but they are masked or otherwise ignored.

Hi curtdodds and welcome to the Toorox forum!

Please check your /etc/make.conf file that the following line exists:

source /usr/portage/local/layman/make.conf

If not, add it!

KDE 4.1 ebuilds are now part of the official portage tree and if you dont want to install svn packages, you can remove that overlay:

layman -d kdesvn-portage

Which packages are masked?

Yes, make.conf contains the line you specified.
I DO want to use the overlay, I'm just not familiar with them yet.
If I run >layman -S
as well as >emerge --sync
then emerge should use the overlay without doing
anything else special.
If that is true, I will continue trying to upgrade.
If not please advise me where to learn about overlays.
I see the gentoo wiki is down.

Thanks for your time,
Curt

Yes,

>layman -S sync all installed overlays
>layman -s (name) sync a specified installed overlay
>layman -l your installed overlays
>layman -L All available overlays
>layman -a (name) install that overlay
>layman -d (name) delete that overlay

For more infos about layman:
>layman -h

Overlays are stored locally in:
/usr/portage/local/layman/...
...and portage is "laying" them "over" the official tree.

Before you upgrade your KDE 4 installation, please set the 'kdeprefix' USEFLAG in /etc/make.conf (USE="... kdeprefix ...) then it will be installed to /usr/kde/4.1 - like before!

Greetings

I added the kdeprefix USE flag, and discovered about 8 kde pkgs had already been upgraded. I managed to unmerge and re-emerge those, deleted /usr/share/config and seem to have recovered.

I must admit I've came very close to wiping this partition several times. My gentoo experience is too outdated to understand 'sets' and preserved_libs. Slots are hard enough now overlays also. Stir up the mix and my headache begins.

I'm currently emerging kde 4.1.2, not svn (overlay). I ran out of disk space (8.2 GB!) and discovered gnome and kde 3.5.10 are also installed? Will have to purge those.

Do you intend to actively develop Toorox?
Is there an updated release in the works?
Hopefully with a good switch for english?

You can switch the language in the boot menu - it is the first option.

Even with the 10-2008 DVD, selecting English, then my display and press TAB, editing lang=en, when KDE comes up everything is German.

Click on the keyboard button to change to US, open terminal >set
shows LANG=de_DE.utf8 and LANGUAGE=de

Am I missing something?
P.S.
At boot, TAB after selecting display, set lang=us works.
KDE comes up in English. the environment var LANGUAGE=de but LANG=en_US.utf8.
Firefox still German. On my H.D. install I wound up purging and re-emerging FF and Thunderbird.

At this point my HD install is about equal to the new release, so I guess I'll stick it out a little longer.
Thanks for your help,
Curt

lang=us
is the correct boot keyword for you.

You dont need to re-install Firefox and Thunderbird. Disable the german language pack in the toolbar:

Extras -> Add-ons -> Sprachen -> Language Pack -> Deaktivieren

Hello All!
Sorry I had to reply here but this is the only open thread and I see that you have got the live cd to boot to the desktop. I get to a terminal login where it asks for the user and password but it doesnt work (root,root or user,user). Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Hi cincyfan43, you are welcome!

Next time - please post it in 'Running Live'.

Okay, that is strange!

1. Are there any errors while the system is booting?

2. Do you see the hardware informations(CPU, GRAPHICS, NETWORK, SOUND)?

3. Do you see the following prompt:
Toorox login:
The system is stopping at this point? And login fails?
login:root Password:root

Please check the md5sum and burn it again at low speed.

Greetings

Re:Aw: Re:Upgrading a hard disk installation 5 years 6 months ago #286

I'm new to linux, especially to toorox. I would like to upgrade my system (ver 2009). Is there any help or short description how to do that. I don't understand anything in this section, and I don't know does it work for this release too.

Hi alacszoli!

Click on Systemconfig -> Software.
By now your system don't know anything about new software packages.
First you have to sync your software database with a remote server.
So, click on the Sync button.
After that you can search for single packages (just type in the name of the package into the empty field e.g. wine, gimp, openoffice-bin ...) whether there is a newer version out and install this one - or just update every package. To do this - click on the "Upgrade" button and choose between a complete update (answer "yes") or you answer "no" - then a list will come up where you can choose single packages for the update process.

Thank's Joern,
I belive that I tried this earlier this morning but it doesn't work or I have to wait for a while. I have copied some messages from summary and process window, maybe it will be helpful.

Delete this 2 packages:
app-text/poppler, app-text/poppler-bindings
Then click again on "Upgrade". The process should start now and install
automatically the other dev-libs/poppler, dev-libs/poppler-qt4 and app-text/poppler-utils.
