Subject: [gentoo-user] portage usage problems
Date: Wed, 17 Oct 2007 07:24:54
1 Hi,
3 I have two tiny problems in using portage.
5 - How can I get a list of all packages for which there is a newer
6 version.
7 emerge --update world doesn't work since it doesn't respect my
8 ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~x86" setting, i.e. it doesn't show new
9 packages if they are "masked" by the "~x86" keyword.
11 - Whenever I install a new kernel I have to reinstall all those packages
12 which generate a kernel module, e.g. nvidia-drivers, openafs-kernel
13 or virtualbox-modules.
14 When emerge has installed the kernel module in
15 /lib/modules/<new-kernel>/...
16 it removes the corresponding module in
17 /lib/modules/<old-kernel>
18 Since I want a fall back possibility I'd like to tell emerge
19 not to remove the modules for the <old-kernel>.
20 How can this be done?
22 Many thanks for a hint,
