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-188.8.131.52-r2 [1.2.17]
[ebuild U ] dev-python/pycrypto-2.0.1-r6 [2.0.1-r5]
[ebuild U ] sys-apps/portage-184.108.40.206 [220.127.116.11]
*** 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.
>>> '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?
