1 Hi All,
3 Portage 1.5.2 is now available on CVS/rsync; everyone should upgrade. After
4 emerging the new version of Portage, edit /etc/make.globals and make sure that
5 it contains the line:
7 CONFIG_PROTECT="/etc /var/qmail/control"
9 *Everyone* should then familiarize themselves with Portage's new config file
10 management functionality and the new emerge options. To do this, type:
12 # emerge --help config
14 This one is the most important. Make sure you understand how CONFIG_PROTECT
15 works and that you have it set up to your liking. Since Config File Protection
16 is enabled by default, this is very important. Post any questions you have
17 here. Also familiarize yourself with CONFIG_PROTECT_MASK
19 # emerge --help
20 # emerge --help system
21 # emerge --help rsync
23 Besides that, enjoy the new version of Portage, which now supports "~" deps
24 (that developers will start using immediately, hence the need for everyone to
25 upgrade) and has the nice new colorized emerge with the useful on-line help :)
27 (Note: if you have been using the previous Config File Management-enabled
28 version of Portage, you'll want to scan for ._cfg_* files too (not just
29 ._cfg????_* files; type "emerge --help config" after merging Portage 1.5.2 and
30 you'll know what I'm talking about)
32 Best Regards,
