Hi,

Today, I wanted to emerge Lokalize.

Emerge failed because the distfiles were not uncompressed. The problem occured for kde-base/krosspython-4.9.5, kde-base/kdesdk-strigi-analyzer-4.9.5 and lokalize.

Code:
Tar command failed at least partially - continuing anyway


After updating tar (from 1.20 installed in 2008), emerge succeeds.

how well do you maintain you system? how (and how often) do you update?
the oldest version of tar available in portage is 1.23-r2, and that version supports xz compression.

I update only what is needed: security issue by GLSA and update to get the last programs for allday uses.

It seems that a newer version of tar never was a dependency.

Wow. OK. We should make it a dependency somewhere.

As a side note, I'm not so sure this is the ideal update strategy. Also, you'll get a lot of bug reports closed as obsolete...

I'm interested by any update strategy experience. Feel free to tell me more.

Start with emerge --update --deep --verbose --ask --newuse --with-bdeps=y @world.

I know, but it never works. There is always conflicts (eg. qt blocks itself, libreoffice-l10n blocks libreoffice-bin, ...).
I do not tell about all side effects on Xorg and udev which needs to know (tits read eselect news).
To use such force method, I must tweak a lot in package.mask, remove all qt packages, ...

How do you succeed?

by starting to post error messages.

the qt part can be resolved easily: emerge -a1O $(qlist -IC x11-libs/qt-)


and if you keep your upgrade procedure (emerge -aDu world) to weekly to monthly basis, a lot less will break.

Thanks for the trick about Qt and your interest for my post.
