It's one of those days when every answer I seek creates more questions... any help
-- I have a pending update to apache-2.0.54-r4. This is the long-awaited "apache package
-- Assuming it is, I went to
and read through that. It says that "There are some modules and packages that depend on
Apache that have not yet been updated." I went to the bug report specified, and almost all
the dependent bugs are closed... I don't think anything that was open will affect me. It
also recommended using equery; I did and it came up with:
Anyone see anything that they know still has a problem with the apache refresh?
-- (side question:) gallery and phpmyadmin are installed via webapp-config... didn't
realize I was accumulating versions... how do I get rid of old ones?
-- The above migration document also talks about putting all the packages that support the
apache changes in /etc/portage/package.keywords. But that's old information right? If the
dependent bugs are closed, then the necessary packages should no longer be masked, right?
-- I will still need to reinstall dependent packages to get the path changes taken care
of, right? The migration doc suggests the use of "emerge --update --deep"... Hmm, and when
I try that for "apache subversion mod_php vqadmin qmailadmin phpmyadmin gallery", it comes
up with about 50 packages... yikes. But that needs to be done, right?
-- (side question:) And actually, if I do the "emerge --deep ... world" version suggested
there, it comes up with at least a hundred packages to update and then errors out, saying
that "The above package list contains packages which cannot be installed on the same
system." Why would that happen? And, I guess I've never paid much attention to the
"--deep" option... is this something I should be doing more often?
-- This new "no-htdocs" USE flag is only necessary if I install gentoo-webroot-default,
right? I DO NOT want gentoo to overwrite my htdocs!
-- I have phppgadmin installed as well... any idea why it doesn't show up in the equery
-- And actually, if I do "emerge -p phppgadmin" I get:
[ebuild U ] net-www/webapp-config-1.10-r14 [1.10-r11]
[ebuild R ] dev-db/phppgadmin-3.5.1
So, I'm current on phppgadmin, but there's supposedly an update to webapp-config!? But
wait a minute, my "emerge -p world" doesn't show that... Hmm, I see, it's not in my world
file... not sure how that happened. Well, I'll add it, but it be nice to know if there are
others. Heh, I just tried regenworld and all it added was sys-devel/bin86... Why would
webapp-config not get added to world and might there be other stuff that I'm missing. I
depend on emerge world to keep me up to date!
Okay, that's enough meandering questions for now... thanks in advance for any help.
