|I've been bad, and haven't updated my gentoo for far too long, and now I'm trying to bring it up-to-date.
I ran emerge --sync.
It told me to update portage asap (I was planning on updating gcc&friends first, but if portage says it's more important, I trust it)
Portage update hit a bunch of slot conflicts with Python. Normally with conflicts I'm comfortable just uninstalling things and letting portate handle installing the right thing, but I'm far less comfortable doing that with python, since it's so core to the system.
Pastebin of the results from trying to update portage.
Say if there's anything else needed to sort this.
I messed up BAD
So, standard procedure for dealing with conflits is to remove it and let emerge figure it out cleanly.
I set python targets to 3_8 and 3_9, python single target to 3_8. Didn't help.
I pulled python 2.7. Didn't help.
I pulled python-exec. Emerge now doesn't work. How bad is this?
