Subject: [gentoo-user] Problem with eix-update
Date: Mon, 16 Apr 2012 18:40:32
1 Hi all,
3 I haven't searched layman for packages in a long time (actually had to
4 google how to do it), and am getting an error I can't seem to solve...
6 problems arised with cachefile _var_lib_layman_zugaina.eix
7 * Calling eix-update...
8 * could not read all eix cachefiles of
9 /tmp/eix-remote.dhR5mKNK/eix-caches.tbz2
11 Then finally:
13 Database contains 16219 packages in 155 categories.
14 * could not read all eix cachefiles of
15 /tmp/eix-remote.w473Rccs/eix-caches.tbz2
17 Probably your eix cachefile was *not* updated successfully.
18 Unless the above messages suggest another cause or you specified a
19 wrong filename, the most likely cause of this is that the server uses
20 another eix version than you or produced broken data. Please inspect
21 /tmp/eix-remote.w473Rccs/eix-caches.tbz2
22 whether this is a valid *.tar.bz2 archive containing eix cachefiles
23 (if it has already been deleted, download it using fetch).
24 If this is not the case (but was freshly downloaded), please report a bug.
25 Note that the archive is *not* broken if only the cachefile format
26 versions differ: In that case only report a bug if the eix cachefile
27 format versions in the downloaded file are *older* than that of the most
28 current ~x86 eix version in the portage tree (but first retry after
29 several days before reporting such a bug to give the server maintainers
30 a chance to upgrade after a version bump of eix).
31 Conversely, if the downloaded versions are even newer than that
32 supported by your eix, you will have to upgrade to the most current ~x86
33 version of eix to use eix-remote: This inconvenience cannot be avoided
34 and is not a bug!
36 Not sure what to do here or how things got hosed...
