Hi all,
I would like to upgrade to 2005.0 ,
Is there any problems?
in http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/gentoo-upgrading.xml There is no signs of 2005.0 (yet).

Is there is enough of changing /etc/make.profile link ?

Well, of course you also have to update all packages.

Moved from Installing Gentoo.

You don't have to update all packages to get the 2005.0 profile (subject), but to upgrade to 2005.0 (message).
At least I associate 2005.0 with the packages that are shipped with it respectively stable at the moment it comes out.

Well all I did was:
Code:

cd /etc
rm make.profile
ln -s /usr/portage/profiles/default-linux/x86/2005.0 make.profile

Then I sync'd up and had a couple of etc-updates due to the change from development-sources to vanilla-sources for the 2.6 kernel and that being changed in my pacakge mask and keywords and linux-headers got updated/name-changed.

That was it except for the announcement made me get on irc #gentoo and then I discovered #gentoo-kde which led me to discover kuroo and then I unmasked it and emerged it and discovered what a great KDE system tool it is for portage. :)

to upgrade your profile, you just have to change the symlink that points to /etc/make.profile.
just change it to /usr/portage/profiles/default-linux/x86/2005.0

Edit: dammit! beaten to the punch!

I would like to know... I'm currently using kernel 2.4 (on gentoo 2004.0) because I had some issues with 2.6 and I don't have time to sort them yet.

If I upgrade to 2005.0 by changing the profile file, will it change anything on my configuration, or use the 2.6 kernel automatically, or not?

Thanks.

Code:

nebula [root] # eix -u
Reading Portage settings
varsreader.cc:310 Can't open file /etc/../usr/portage/profiles/default-linux/x86/2005.0/make.defaults: No such file or directory

make.defaults ???

Also getting the same error. Would copying the make.defaults over from another profile (like 2004.3) be okay?

no, it would get purged on every sync. the program should not be looking for make.defaults on an absolute path. it needs to support cascading profiles. in this case, the make.defaults is in the parent dir (/usr/portage/profiles/default-linux/x86).

If anybody is still wondering about this problem, upgrading to eix 0.2.2 fixed it.

Code:
# echo "=app-portage/eix-0.2.2" >> /etc/portage/package.keywords
# emerge eix
# update-eix

I am not exactly sure but I wouldn't upgrade to the new profile until you have to. Especially since you are using the 2.4 kernel version.

Just use 2005.0/2.4 if you want to stay with the 2.4 kernel.

Yep, unmaked eix-0.2.2 and it works. Not filing a bug report since it's obviously been fixed, haha.

emerging eix didn't fix the fact that make.defaults do not exist for 2005.0.

Any other ideas?
