Hi i have a question. If I again emerge vlc which in system, this application again compilation and installing. I think if I tested last week, only system tells me, that this application is in the system and no product up to date.

It is OK? I want change it, if possible it.

Thanks for your answer.

Hi xHypnos.

Its a little bit unclear to me how to interpret your question, but I will try.

If you use the -u (--update) option for an already installed package, emerge told you that there is nothing to to, if no newer/higher version is available within your chosen settings.

If you leave out the --update option, emerge reinstalls it, no matter if it's already installed or not.

Hope this answers your question.

Andy.

xHypnos,

You can use -p anytime. Look at the output of emerge ...

man emerge:
       --pretend (-p)
              Instead of actually performing the merge, simply display what *would* have been installed if  --pretend  weren't  used.
              Using --pretend is strongly recommended before installing an unfamiliar package.  In the printout:


              N   new (not yet installed)
              S   new SLOT installation (side-by-side versions)
              U   updating (to another version)
              D   downgrading (best version seems lower)
              r   reinstall (forced for some reason, possibly due to slot or sub-slot)
              R   replacing (remerging same version)
              F   fetch restricted (must be manually downloaded)
              f   fetch restricted (already downloaded)
              I   interactive (requires user input)
              B   blocked by another package (unresolved conflict)
              b   blocked by another package (automatically resolved conflict)
