Hello to everyone,

I synced my box & then tried the following :
Quote:
# emerge -uDav portage

These are the packages that I would merge, in order:

From the man page I see that NS means "New Slot" so the questions are :

a. What is a slot ? (I know that it's explained in the doc's but not very good :oops: )
b. Did each autumake-* created it's own slot or did they all go to only 1 new slot ?
c. Is it safe to remove the old automake('s) & it slot('s) ? the same way I removed gcc 3.3.5 when upgraded to 3.4.3 even though it had it's own slot ?

d. How come portage need's to update so many automake's, why doesn't it just stick to the latest version ?

That's all :), thank you very much for your comment's.
Cheers, Maxim.
