Subject: [gentoo-user] portage update bloacked
Date: Mon, 30 Jun 2008 13:50:47

I'm building a system using a 2006.0 minimal install disk and
following the (current) installation docs.  I got to the part where it
is suggested I upgrade portage.  However, there is a blocker:

(chroot) livecd / # emerge -p --oneshot portage

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Calculating dependencies... done!

[ebuild     U ] sys-apps/sandbox- [1.2.17] 
[ebuild     U ] dev-python/pycrypto-2.0.1-r6 [2.0.1-r5] 
[ebuild     U ] sys-apps/portage- [] 
*** Portage will stop merging at this point and reload itself,
    then resume the merge.
[ebuild     U ] app-shells/bash-3.2_p33 [3.1_p17] USE="-plugins%" 
[blocks B     ] <sys-apps/portage-2.1.4_rc1 (is blocking app-shells/bash-3.2_p33)
(chroot) livecd / # emerge -pC portage

>>> These are the packages that would be unmerged:
!!! 'sys-apps/portage' is part of your system profile. !!! Unmerging it may be damaging to your system. sys-apps/portage selected: protected: none omitted: none
>>> 'Selected' packages are slated for removal. >>> 'Protected' and 'omitted' packages will not be removed.
I looked on the bugzilla but this "bug" is maked invalid. Could someone please suggest a next step? Thanks, Roger -- gentoo-user@l.g.o mailing list
