Subject: [gentoo-dev] Upgrading packages?
Date: Thu, 04 Apr 2002 00:24:48
1 Hi,
3 I was wondering about the way unmerge operates: does it remove the
4 packages dependinf on the one we want to unmerge? This question is
5 particularly meaningful with regard to how upgrading works. If I had, say,
6 kde 2.2 and wanted to upgrad to kde 3.0, I would first "emerge kde(3?)"
7 and then unmerge the old kde with "emerge unmerge kde". But would this
8 take care of removing ALL packages depending on the old kde? Or would I
9 have to remove each of them manually?
11 Thanks & keep up the great work!
