1 Hi there!
3 I just did an emerge -uDN on my system, followed by revdep-rebuild and
4 emerge --depclean. When rebooting, my system did not come up because of
5 missing things like /sbin/rc. Argh! Good thing I had a backup, after
6 copying some files back the system was up again, and I could go to bed.
7 Bad idea anyway to do a reboot on a critical machine at 6 AM.
9 The missing files belong to sys-apps/baselayout-1.12.10-r5 which I had
10 just installed recently. I had masked it for a while
11 because I want to update such critical packages only when I am home at
12 the server, while most of the time I am far away from it.
14 The depclean removed an older baselayout which was also installed, I guess
15 that removed the files. Why did that happen, and why did I have two
16 baselayouts installed in parallel?
18 These are the missing files:
20 /etc/env.d/00basic
21 /etc/init.d/
22 /etc/init.d/
23 /etc/init.d/
24 /sbin/
25 /sbin/
26 /sbin/rc
27 /sbin/rc-update
28 /sbin/runscript
29 /sbin/
30 /sbin/start-stop-daemon
31 /sbin/update-rc
32 /usr/sbin/MAKEDEV
