Subject: [gentoo-dev] Portage-2.0.47-r3 -- Testing
Date: Sun, 23 Feb 2003 08:44:05
1 Portage-2.0.47-r3 is out and it needs more testers, _especially_ those
2 that experienced bugs in 2.0.47-r2. All of those bugs should be fixed.
3 See the ChangeLog below for details on additions and fixes.
5 The PATH problems some people experienced were due to resetting
6 BASH_ENV to a proper value for userpriv. Anyone that (incorrectly)
7 sourced /etc/profile caused any running scripts to reload the root
8 (or user, if they were sudo or 'su' running portage) when they were
9 executed. This overwrote the changes portage/ made to the
10 path, and thus things weren't quite kosher.

13 ChangeLog for Portage-2.0.47-r3
14 -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
16 22 Feb 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@g.o> bin/: added dispatch-conf
17 and to the bins. Looking at dispatch-conf to replace etc-update
18 written by Jeremy Wohl (bug 14079). is a rescue tool that Blizzy
19 wrote up to recreate/repair counter files in the DB -- shouldn't be needed
20 anymore as portage fixes the counter at every load of the counter, but we
21 will hang on to it just in case.
23 22 Feb 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@g.o> moved the
24 wheelgid references to portage_gid references. Wheel is being deprecated.
25 Added notice to baselayout message that group portage controls everything
26 now. Killed the BASH_ENV settings -- moved the reference to /etc/portage/
27 in case it's desired in some way -- This fixes AROUND ONE HUNDRED reports
28 on 2.0.47-r2. Try/catch invalid tbz2's -- should fix a couple bad tarball
29 bugs. Make the prelink call spawn'd without sandbox. buildpkg/userpriv
30 fix via actionmap (Jasmin Buchert; bug 16106).
32 22 Feb 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@g.o> emerge: --upgradeonly
33 added from jrray's patch; added some slot handling. --deep got a short
34 flag 'D'. 'info' can be run by non-root. '--quiet' kills all but package
35 names on searches. Basic slot detection added to the pretend output so
36 that it doesn't always say downgrade. Ignore block list when fetching.
37 Can use RSYNC_EXCLUDEFROM to select a from for rsync to --exclude-from;
38 (Michael Sterrett; Bug 15882). 'emerge rsync' deletes the dbcachedir
39 before it begins updates. Catch exceptions during rsync cache regen.
41 22 Feb 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@g.o> General fixes
42 to the spelling of things. 'cd $PORT_TMPDIR' corrected to the actual vars
43 name. Stripping distcc from PATH if it is there before portage sets it.
44 Same with ccache. If we try to compile with out unpacking, complain. Make
45 sure to chown files to user portage.
47 22 Feb 2003; Nicholas Jones <carpaski@g.o> cnf/*: CFLAGS notes,
48 pentium4 breaks things. Added more descriptions for FEATURES. Added
49 RSYNC_EXCLUDEFROM description.
