Running Gentoo stable - only a few packages in package.keywords - means receiving
little to no updates.
I thought I run my fresh Gentoo stable. On my old install had a package.keywords file
that I could not control anymore. I expected the system to be reliable when run stable.
I was wrong.

Yesterday claws-mail got a update but now it segfaults when retrieving mail.

Code:
$ claws-mail

** (claws-mail:24393): WARNING **: IMAP: can't get cert

I also run gentoo stable and claws-mail, and did not get any claws-mail update.
Which version ?

Edit : ok, it's not a claws-mail update.
Its a claws-mail rebuild because of net-libs/libetpan update.
This is bug #569826.

This was update to mail-client/claws-mail-3.9.0; no libetpan update.
But I have rebuild libetpan anyway. I always forget that
libetpan often needs a rebuild for claws-mail.

Still... the segfault on retrieving stays.

I had the same problem. After masking libetpan 1.6 and rebuilding it claws-mail worked again. As claws-mail is the only thing using libetpan on my system I am happy with this solution until it is properly fixed. The bug reported for this, 569826, says that they are in the process of stabilizing a newer version of claws-mail. Once that happens I will try the newer version of libetpan again.

Yes thanks. :)

Originally I didn't want to rant. But here I go:

what's the benefit of running Gentoo stable?
You do not get fairly recent software which causes issues too.
Like java environment; login onto my Universitys library works but
then there's no browsing books or lending books because they open
a javascript run popup and the menulist in it is missing because of java
not being up-to-date in any browser on Gentoo ( it works on Windows in any browser ).
This is just an example.

My new shiny EFI Gentoo ... I wanted to run it stable because I had a fairly long package.keywords
file on my old MBR Gentoo that's inactive now and I even chose Openrc over Systemd.
Cleaning out that package.keywords was impossible.
I remember all the heated discussion about aggressively keywording the system and how bad that is
and that it's your own fault if you get unsolvable blocks if you keyword your system.

I hoped that keeping my Gentoo clean and yet having stuff fairly recent and useful would be possible.

But I was wrong. Gentoo is dying, there's no denying it and that makes me very sad because I love Gentoo.

So you were hit by a bug. Yes that happens, sometimes even on stable.

This is just an example.

Use oracle-jre-bin if you depend on such things. Yes, it is stable.

What's the problem with EFI?

Yeah it has been dying for years...

Nothing...happy with it. I had good intentions for that fresh install,
like running it stable and with openrc instead of systemd.

Why the sarcasm? Do you really believe that Gentoo and everyone who loves
and nutures it can be so complacent?

That's a good example. The OpenSource community wants to get away from closed
source code yet still relies on it.

Enough with this... it's off-topic here.

I apologize... I have embraced Gentoo since 2003 and I don't wanna loose it.
But I cannot code myself which is a shame, so I'd better let go, right?

Which is perfectly possible, no?

The Gentoo relevance on that topic is zero?

Again, one stable bug?

It took me several hours to figure out why the heck claws-mail fails, especially there were no updates. I even reemergered the whole world after realizing I have no clue what is going on. This is definitely not the best activity for January 1'st, I say you. And finially, I got it back after masking libetpan-1.6 and therefore forcing system to build 1.1. My thanks and respect to gorbag.
