I can't seem to understand why people neglect kernel versions on such updates.
I think that the right path is portage->glibc->binutils->gcc->portage->glibc->binutils->kernel+header->reboot->rest

Do this over SSH and then see how you swear if the kernel doesn't come up after reset while the server is literally "in another state".

Well. I seem to have finally gotten this thing updated to the current release for about everything. I had to manually update a lot of stuff from pre-compiled packages first and was able to get to where I could emerge gcc, binutils and glibc. That seemed to be the key there but before going any further I had to compile a new kernel to prevent the new coreutils from breaking the system totally. I took some notes but had to move stuff around a little trying to figure out how to get things to install in proper order.

There might have been an easier method to doing this but loosley following this I was able to get it done.

Code:

#BASELINE

#SYNCED emerge

I have a similar problem, and I intend on using the above script actions to see if I can update this thing but mine is a pretty old Sparc2. It's a good box that just keeps running, but I haven't turned it on in a couple of years due to some moving and such. Now that things are in the swing again, I wanted to update and did an emerge --sync. Seemed to go ok, but emerge portage gives me this
Code:

firegeek 10.0 # emerge portage
Calculating dependencies /
!!! All ebuilds that could satisfy "portage" have been masked.
!!! One of the following masked packages is required to complete your request:
- sys-apps/portage-2.1.6.7 (masked by: package.mask)
# Zac Medico <zmedico@gentoo.org> (09 Aug 2011)
# Bug #377907 - Use package.mask for compatibility with PMS section 5.2.7, and
# future versions of sys-apps/portage.

- sys-apps/portage-9999 (masked by: required EAPI 3, supported EAPI 0)
- sys-apps/portage-2.1.10.44 (masked by: required EAPI 2, supported EAPI 0)
- sys-apps/portage-2.1.10.41 (masked by: required EAPI 2, supported EAPI 0)
- sys-apps/portage-2.1.10.11 (masked by: required EAPI 2, supported EAPI 0)
- sys-apps/portage-2.2.0_alpha84 (masked by: required EAPI 3, supported EAPI 0)
- sys-apps/portage-2.2.0_alpha81 (masked by: required EAPI 3, supported EAPI 0)
- sys-apps/portage-2.1.6.13 (masked by: required EAPI 1, supported EAPI 0)

For more information, see MASKED PACKAGES section in the emerge man page or
refer to the Gentoo Handbook.


my /usr/portage profile is linked correctly, but since this is saying EAPI 0, I'm curious if I'm screwed.

Thanks in advance

This thread is more than a year old. So, even those post listed will be somewhat out of date.

If at all possible re- install. It will be easier.

Now that this post is more than a year old again...I have a virtual machine at 10.0 that I wasn't able to update for a while because I had to replace a processor for one that wouldn't support a 64-bit install. I 'emerge --sync'ed it and now it won't emerge portage. It gives a lot of .py errors and doesn't even show me "what will be merged". For some reason, though it was able to start when I tried "emerge -vuNDp system". Perhaps an update to the system will re-enable an update to portage? Perhaps there are some emerge options I can enable or disable to get around some default that's causing problems? I don't know why, but I don't have python-2.7. I don't know why it would be missing.

I may have to just reinstall on the vm. Hard to do from work. Of course updating the system will probably take long enough that I'll be home before trying anything else.

That should help out a lot. Should I stop my system update to fix this first? Or is the system update ok to do with the old portage?

Thanks!

You'll likely only get part way without problems in any case. Since the Portage tree is now modern, running with a modern Portage would be recommended.

Ok. Well, I'll see if glibc will finish and then kill it.

EDIT: The manual repair worked great and even pulled in Python 2.7 automatically.
