Hi all,

The dev-lang/go-1.11.5 package is too far out of date for use with my company. Therefore I un-emerged the go package (emerge -aC dev-lang/go) and installed the newest binary into /usr/local/go. Go works well now upgraded to 1.12.1.

However I want to update some other packages, such as Docker. Yet emerge asks to re-emerge the go-1.11.5 ebuild, which makes sense, because to portage it isn't installed.

How can I tell portage it is already installed outside of the portage tree?

From my quick skimming of the man docs and searching through the forums I was not able to find an answer. Is there some form of package.mask that refers to a locally installed binary rather than a different ebuild?

Thanks,

Grellyd

But dev-lang/go-1.12.1 is in tree
Code:
[I] dev-lang/go
     Available versions:  1.11.5(0/1.11.5)^st 1.12.1(0/1.12.1)^st **9999(0/9999)^s {gccgo}
     Installed versions:  1.12.1(0/1.12.1)^st(06:57:22 PM 03/18/2019)(-gccgo)
     Homepage:            https://golang.org
     Description:         A concurrent garbage collected and typesafe programming language

You run emerge --sync for update tree?

Ha that is my error.

Thanks @fedeliallalinea.

Do you know how far the tree generally lags behind a release schedule?

If you want to tell portage that a package should be considered installed, you can put it in /etc/portage/package.provided (man portage for the syntax)
