In an ongoing effort to model the best possible organisation of the
portage tree, I am pleased to announce a new category: x11-themes. The
purpose of this category will be to contain, well, themes
To this end, the existing themes in portage have been migrated. In
all have a new home in x11-themes.
In order to upgrade your personal emerges, please do the following:
# emerge sync --clean
to get the latest portage tree. The --clean option will ensure that
stale ebuilds are being removed from your local tree.
# emerge --pretend unmerge <your_app>
Without the --pretend option, this will remove your app.
# emerge --pretend x11-themes/<your_app>
And this will remerge the correct version.
As all future releases of these applications will be made in the new
category this upgrade is recommended.
Also, please note that app-misc/xscreensaver has been moved to
x11-misc/xscreensaver, so please follow the above steps analogously to
upgrade your personal emerges.
Sorry for the short term inconvenience, but this will serve us all better
in the long-term.
