|I have an older gentoo system where I originally set up without tree verification. I have a newer laptop gentoo system where I set up with tree verification as per https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Sakaki%27s_EFI_Install_Guide/Building_the_Gentoo_Base_System_Minus_Kernel#setup_gentoo_dot_conf (as it's a dual-boot machine requiring secure boot and efi as per network regulations at my work).
After running the latter for a while, I figured that I'd like tree verification in my older system too -- so I've copied out the `gentoo.conf` parts which related to tree verification into my local `gentoo.conf` on the more venerable machine, namely:
sync-rsync-verify-jobs = 1
sync-rsync-verify-metamanifest = yes
sync-rsync-verify-max-age = 24
sync-openpgp-key-path = /usr/share/openpgp-keys/gentoo-release.asc
sync-openpgp-key-refresh-retry-count = 40
sync-openpgp-key-refresh-retry-overall-timeout = 1200
sync-openpgp-key-refresh-retry-delay-exp-base = 2
sync-openpgp-key-refresh-retry-delay-max = 60
sync-openpgp-key-refresh-retry-delay-mult = 4
However, after performing an on the laptop, I see a message about verifying the tree (and the process takes a while, as I would expect), but on the older desktop machine, I don't see any such message or time taken to verify the tree.
- I'm using rsync on both machines (git was consuming 20 gig for the portage tree !! so I switched back to rsync)
- I do have the portage use flag `rsync-verify` set on both machines
- I have the above configuration block in my `gentoo.conf` in the [gentoo] section on both machines
I have to assume that I'm missing some obvious bit of configuration somewhere -- I'd appreciate any assistance in determining what it is.
