Subject: does 'emerge world' replace already updated packages?
Date: Tue, 13 Sep 2011 21:55:40 +0100
Hi all,<div><br></div><div>My question is straightforward, under what circumstances &#39;emerge world&#39; re-emerges packages even if installed and updated?</div><div><br></div><div>The issue I am having is that &#39;emerge world&#39; reinstalls approx 46 packages. I have not been using portage for a while (was a regular Gentoo/Linux user few years ago), but usually in order to maintain an updated system</div>

<div><br></div><div>$ emerge world -pv</div><div><br></div><div>would have showed me only those packages which are proposed to be updated (or reinstalled if they are linked against some peculiar library).</div><div><br></div>

<div>I never used --update at that time, as its omission was already producing desired effect:</div><div><br></div><div>$ eix-sync</div><div>$ emerge world -DN</div><div><br></div><div>was already moving my tree to the packages with highest best version and/or modified use flags. </div>

<div><br></div><div>Now that I discovered Gentoo Portage, I immediately replaced fink and macports, but found a slightly different portage behavior and now I wonder if this is an issue or not (I am not even sure whether I am able to express my concern).</div>

<div><br></div><div>Thanks to anybody who can eventually address my concern,</div><div>Cheers,</div><div>Askar Bektassov<br>(Аскар Бектасов)</div><div><br></div><div><br></div><div>$ emerge --info</div><div><div>Portage 2.2.01.19120-prefix (prefix/darwin/macos/10.7/x64, gcc-4.2.1, unavailable, 11.1.0 x86_64)</div>
