Subject: [gentoo-user] emerge sets syntax (@world vs. world)
Date: Wed, 12 Dec 2012 11:54:31
1 Hello.
3 A couple of weeks ago I filed a bug because in the Installation Handbook
4 I found some references of the "world" set in emerge commands, as
5 opposed to "@world":
7 The bug was closed as invalid, and I was told that:
9 > sets with the @ prefix are a portage-2.2 feature, which is still hardmasked and thus not documented.
11 The fact is that I have portage-, not 2.2, and man emerge says:
13 > When used as arguments to emerge sets have to be prefixed with @ to be recognized.
15 One possibility is that documentation stick with the stable portage
16 package, not the testing one (I have a ~amd64 system only). But I
17 checked portage (the latest stable amd64 portage package
18 version) and the previous phrase is there, too.
20 I know it's not a very important issue, but I'd still like to know if
21 I'm wrong or not, and why.
23 Thank you.
