Everything was just starting to go quite right on my O2 upgrade. Got the 2.6.22.6 kernel running. Updated everything, with the exception of binutils 2.17 to 2.18 and gcc 4.1.1 to 4.1.2. Suddenly, however, I believe after one of the following updates:
Code:
-rw-r--r-- 1 root portage  824 Jan 13 23:15 sys-devel:distcc-2.18.3-r10:20080113-221551.log
-rw-r--r-- 1 root portage  286 Jan 13 23:07 app-admin:eselect-1.0.10:20080113-220747.log
-rw-r--r-- 1 root portage 1502 Jan 13 23:05 sys-devel:binutils-2.18-r1:20080113-220547.log
-rw-r--r-- 1 root portage  682 Jan 13 18:24 app-admin:fam-2.7.0-r4:20080113-172455.log
-rw-r--r-- 1 root portage  227 Jan 13 18:09 net-nds:portmap-6.0:20080113-170947.log
-rw-r--r-- 1 root portage  122 Jan 13 17:08 net-analyzer:nmap-4.20:20080113-160807.log
-rw-r--r-- 1 root portage  266 Jan 13 16:40 net-libs:libpcap-0.9.8:20080113-154004.log
-rw-r--r-- 1 root portage  206 Jan 13 16:32 app-portage:ufed-0.40-r6:20080113-153240.log
-rw-r--r-- 1 root portage  560 Jan 13 16:02 net-misc:ntp-4.2.4_p4:20080113-150251.log
-rw-r--r-- 1 root portage 2479 Jan 13 14:54 sys-apps:baselayout-1.12.10-r5:20080113-135208.log

I no longer have the profile I had set before, namely:
Code:
ls -l /etc/make.profile
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 67 Dec 26 17:34 /etc/make.profile -> /usr/portage/profiles/default-linux/mips/2007.0/generic-be/o32/nptl
. Instead, the only profile left is 2007.1-dev. Was this the intended effect? Usually old profiles are kept around for awhile. Also, a profile with "dev" in the name sounds perhaps a little less like a stable one I would normally choose.

I kind of suspect this happened with the baselayout update. In any case, has anyone else had this happen or know if the next step is to simply start using the 2007.1-dev profile?

Yep... it tends to happen when someone deletes the profiles in question from CVS like Kumba did recently. The exact update that would have done it, would be the emerge --sync that happened during the update process, rather than the replacement of any specific package.

http://sources.gentoo.org/viewcvs.py/gentoo-x86/profiles/default-linux/mips/2007.0/parent?hideattic=0&rev=1.2&view=log

You need to migrate over to the 2007.1-dev profiles. Given you've updated your toolchain, you should be able to migrate over with few hassles.

As always Redhatter, thanks for taking the time to explain things. I'm sure there's some critical dev-ish reason for such purges of the CVS, but I would have thought it would have been a good idea to keep the old profile until there was a non-dev replacement profile available. FWIW, the other architectures seem to operate this way. What am I missing?

Then again, he might not. How would one retrieve the "dead" profile from CVS? Obviously, this won't work on files in the attic:

Code:
cvs -d :pserver:anonymous@anoncvs.gentoo.org:/var/cvsroot co gentoo-x86/profiles/default-linux/mips/2007.0/cobalt/o32/nptl


Is the attic dir accessible via anoncvs? I would think not, but probably best to ask.

You can get to it via anoncvs... just fetch the profiles/default-linux/mips directory specifying a date when the 2007.0 profile existed.

I was surprised that they just disappeared like that too... normally they get marked deprecated first... No idea what happened.

For what it's worth... I'm preparing for the next release, just got to wait for new profiles to appear.

Thanks Redhatter.
I agree, I like the last "known-good" version of things to stick around as depreciated so that one has a way top fall back if things go all pear-shaped.

I have a copy of the old profile since I have to maintain my own overlay, but I wanted some note of the CVS solution to be on this thread for others.

nb that the 2007.1-dev profile for cobalt pulls in xorg which seems a bit silly on a headless box.

Also, the latest pam (0.99.8.1-r1) pulled in by this upgrade cycle causes openssh (4.7_p1-r1) to exit with a signal 15 on startup for cobalt. I'll put up a note elsewhere and/or file a bug when I have more useful diagnostic, but I have to hook up a terminal to see if it's spitting out anything useful in the console first. I just wanted to give you a heads-up in case you're still using your Qube. Bumping either/both to the latest unstable versions doesn't help. I haven't checked to see if the removal of pam_userdb to it's own module (sys-auth/pam_userdb) is the culprit since it doesn't have a mips keyword and I haven't gotten around to dinking with the ebuild yet. The QAD workaround is to recompile openssh without pam.

For my own experience with SGI O2, I found openssh and vixie cron both stop functioning with the new (stable or unstable) PAM. I filed Bugzilla Bug 205943 on it.

Yeah, it was kinda spontaneous to yank the profiles like that, but 2007.0 and 2006.1 especially were holding us back due to version lockdowns. Those two were NPTL transition profiles, hence why you had o32/nptl and such, and were designed to bridge the gap in jumping from linuxthreads to NPTL. I've been running NTPL on my Octane for a very long time now, and felt that it was time to complete the transition and start moving. We're eventually going to move the arch entirely into unstable, dropping or converting our stable keywords back into unstable, because the volume of stabilization requests is just too much for our limited man power right now. As a result, the speed of version upgrades will pick up a little bit, so the profile changeout was necessary to get everyone onto the same page.
