Hello forum friends, could someone please help me to understand the idea for having the more fast and secure syncs to the main gentoo repository. I typically will switch between methods or tools for doing the sync, and want to know, a) that there is no harm in this, which I suspect there is not, and b) if there is a preferred method for me to be using for the syncing and then I can go back to using it in a daily cron job which is the recommended method, but not knowing the advantages to using one method or the other I will just probably choose based on someone else's advice here.

i think that this automation doesn't really work

some updates gives blockers or dependencies on changing USE flags

there you'll have to interact manually with your computer :wink:

Thanks for the reply artbody, I hadn't thought about it but you bring up very good points. I will try not to do any automatic package updates after all. But please look at another post here I just made I am wondering something about out-of-tree builds and whether there is a preferred way to handle the lot of all packages on my system (in- and out- of the portage tree) so that I can query like I do with portageq or equery but for not just the ones I installed with emerge. Also an acceptable solution I would imagine would be to understand better how to use the emerge tool to do the installing of these packages. Is that just going to be emerge --buildpkg or something similar with a tarred archive of some kind? Where is there a good description about that somewhere on the wiki...maybe?

Thanks again!
