Hi everybody,

after resolving the troubles with virtual/rubygems, I stumbled upon another problem. As usual I synced the portage tree with cave sync and ran
Code:
cave resolve -c installed-packages

to see what will be updated, but after the calculation the output reads:
Code:

Error:
  * In program cave resolve -c installed-packages::installed:
  * When finding things to purge:
  * Could not find 'a' (paludis::NoSuchSetError)

What set is cave looking for?
Here's my cave info:

I noticed that the same error occurs when running cave purge.

Code:
ls -a /etc/paludis


Hunch: Sets.conf contains the letter a.

Unfortunately, the solution is not that easy, as I haven't defined any sets on my own..., but I don't know what cave tries to find it.

There are only 2 overlays to check in your case:

  1. java-experimental
  2. voip


Which installed packages belong to each?

At the moment, nothing of importance, if anything is installed from the overlays, I just kept them, because I needed them for dependencies in the past. But anyway, where should I have a look at?

Btw., I realized that java-experimental swichted to git, tried to sync it, but cave tells me
Code:
Repository                    Status                Pending Active  Done
-> java-experimental          starting              0       1       0
 * '/usr/local/overlays/java-experimental' exists but it is not a Git repository
-> java-experimental          failed                0       0       1

Maybe, this has something to do with my above problem...

Regards,

Andreas

Code:
playman -d java-experimental
rm -v /etc/paludis/java-experimental.conf
playman -a java-experimental
cave sync x-java-experimental
cave resolve -c installed-packages


Lets see if readding the overlay helps...

It might be a stray letter "a" in your world file too.

Thanks,

actually it was a stray letter in the world file. Btw., where do I find playman? All the links I found were quite old, but I seems quite handy for managing overlays instead of doing it by hand...

AFAIR

Code:
cave resolve repository/kde


for example does the trick now.

Well, cave resolve repository/java-experimental shows me this:[/i]

Code:
These are the actions I will take, in order:

(nothing to do)
I encountered the following errors:

!   repository/java-experimental
    Reasons: target
    Unsuitable candidates:
      * Found no packages for resolvent repository/java-experimental:(unknown)::(install_to_slash)

It's been renamed from "java-experimental" to just "java" in the last few weeks and they didn't bother to inform anyone.

You can do "cave show repository/*" to get the entire list.

Hm, cave show repository/* results in:
Code:
* repository/*

Error:
  * In program cave show repository/*:
  * Found nothing suitable matching 'repository/*' (paludis::cave::NothingMatcing)

Sorry for the late reply...
FAQ: Things Paludis Does Differently wrote:

Alternatives to Layman

Portage does not natively support multiple repositories, so the layman tool is used to hack around this. Since Paludis does support multiple repositories, there is no need for a fancy tool to manage and sync overlays.

Adding a repository to Paludis simply requires an appropriate configuration file to be created, and then a normal sync to be carried out. It is possible to create repository configuration files by hand; however, an automated method is available which simplifies things considerably. To enable the automated method, simply ensure that the unavailable and repository repositories have been configured, and then a repository can automatically by configured simply by installing repository/somerepo.

Note that previously, a script named playman was used for this purpose; the automatic method is now considered preferable.
