|If you use layman, you've probably already seen this:
|Layman has been using /usr/local/portage/layman to store
overlay checkouts from version 1.2.3 on. As that path
was violating the concept of keeping portage away from
/usr/local the default of this storage location moves to
from version 1.3.0 on. If you have never touched the file
/etc/layman/layman.cfg manually before, you may be tempted to let
tools like etc-update or dispatch-conf blindly accept this new version
I dunno about you people, but between all of my computers, that would mean making about twelve dozen changes, and several minutes worth of typing.
Fortunately, i believe laziness drives progress, so here is a solution for everyone:
open first config file in vi (or clone)
| :%s/\/usr\/local\/portage/\/var\/lib/g |
repeat until all configuration files are updated
move to next machine and repeat
repeat untill all machines are updated
simple and easy.
These opinions are mine, mine I say! Piss off and get your own.
