Yep just tried 2.0.7 same problem as Dolio, back at 2.0.4 but at least we know Daniel Robbins is working hard on it.

I have 2.0.7 emerged and it seems to be working. The "Receiving files" number count is still gone, but it otherwise seems to work. I had some issues with a HUGE number of packages that needed to be updated [see here].

But from the looks of it, most of that list was due to the new gnome2 stuff (which I'm not using other then gimp, but we will worry about that some othertime].

But for now, I have been emerging and unemerging away, and all seems to work...

Of course, as soon as I post this, the whole thing will bork :P

I've now tried 2.0.5, 2.0.6, and 2.0.7, and all of them had MAJOR issues. 2.0.7 seems to be the best of the lot but I think I'm just going to keep my 2.0.4 which is fast and reliable until I hear that portage is safe to upgrade again. I'm just glad I was able to back down to 2.0.4 every time.

I'm having the same problem with update world taking forever to calculate dependencies in 2.0.7, though I'm not having the insta-crashes that 2.0.5 gave me or the 'emerge -s' as normal user problem that both 2.0.5 and 2.0.6 had for me.

My 2.0.7 does the same thing, but only because there are a lot of packages I have to upgrade...

And since I cleaned the old portages,I can't get 2.0.4 back :)

I alway use "emerge -b portage" to upgrade portage.
I can go back to portage 2.0.4 in case of problem:
tar -jxpvf -C / /usr/portage/packages/All/portgage-2.0.4.tbz2

Yeah, I just never thought of it :) Oh well... 2.0.7 seems to be working for now...

I did a

emerge -c portage
and downgraded from 2.0.7 to 2.0.4 this way.

Shit. I emerged portage 2.0.7 before reading this topic. I got some error messages and thet the ebuild was abortet. But curiously it was installed anyway. emerge -pu world is slow as hell and jams up the cpu. Nevermind, did emerge -pC portage-2.0.7 and wanted to have my good ole 2.0.1 back again. But now everything is fucked up & portage no longer working.

I think this needs fixing. Why isn't that stuff masked?

EDIT: Executed the rescue portage and emerged 2.0.4, this one works.

Already tried it, but I --clean rsynced (openssh stuff) and the 2.0.4 ebuild is gone... No big deal, it seems that I am the only one that doesn't have any problems with 2.0.7 anyway :)

Strange, I still have the ebuilts for portage version 1.4, 1.9.9-13, 2.0.1-7 though cleaning from time to time. If you are in urgent need, I can email you the one you need/want!

* ElCondor pasa *

Edit: you did an emerge --clean rsync? I never did that. what does it actually do (besides removing ebuilds you might need some day ;) )?

Thanks, I'll keep it in mind for when it does break :)

I also had this problem. It seems to have been a problem with the newer make.conf. After reverting to my original from 2.0.4, everything seems to be working all right. emerge rsync works at least. And a -pretend portage yields predictable results:

Code:
These are the packages that I would merge, in order.

I do emerge rsync --clean all the time and I still have various versions of portage in /usr/portage/sys-apps/portage ;)

I don't know how many people are trying Portage 2.0.7

I am, and now I can't download anything with Portage :(
Code:
>>> Downloading http:/www.ibiblio.org/pub/Linux/distributions/gentoo//distfiles/winex-20020511.tar.bz2
http:/www.ibiblio.org/pub/Linux/distributions/gentoo//distfiles/winex-20020511.tar.bz2: Unsupported scheme.

And then it gives me 404 for whatever package I'm trying to emerge.
Looks like I'll be downgrading Portage too.

Of course, your problem has nothing to do with portage...

http:/www.ibiblio.org/

See anything wrong with that? Like a missing /? Correct that and it will work fine. The 'missing scheme' error message is what wget kicks back, not portage.

You've got some sharp eyes there 8)
I didn't even notice that missing /. I wonder how the heck that happened too, considering that I haven't changed my make.conf in awhile. Really wierd thing is it happend towards the end of updating a ton of stuff, since when I got up this morning most of the stuff was updated.

It's more a function of knowing why (generally) wget kicks back that specific error message. I've seen it plenty of times when I've fat-fingered things like:

Code:
wget fpt://www.foo.com/


etc...

I have found it wise to backup your python and portage into a bzip'd file with the proper permissions and directory structure, that way you have a problem you can just tar xvjpf it back into action.

This is really, really ugly.

Portage 2.0.7 not only destroys the ability to do an emerge -up system:

Code:

Calculating system dependencies \
!!! Error: couldn't find match for sys-devel/ld.so in update (likely old /var/db/pkg entry)


but remerging portage 2.0.4 doesn't seem to be an option at all (ebuilds only exist for 1.9.something, 2.0.5 and 2.0.7 for some reason), reverting to 2.0.5 doesn't fix anything, and even the RESCUE procedure ( tar xjpUvf portage-rescue-1.8.19.tbz2 -C / )fails with:

Code:

...
usr/share/man/man1/pkglist.1.gz
usr/share/man/man1/pkgsearch.1.gz
usr/share/man/man5/
tar: usr/share/man/man5: Cannot unlink: Directory not empty
usr/share/man/man5/ebuild.5.gz
usr/share/man/man5/make.conf.5.gz
usr/share/man/man5/make.defaults.5.gz
usr/share/doc/
tar: usr/share/doc: Cannot unlink: Directory not empty
usr/share/doc/portage-1.8.19/
tar: usr/share/doc/portage-1.8.19: Cannot unlink: Directory not empty
usr/share/doc/portage-1.8.19/ChangeLog.gz

bzip2: (stdin): trailing garbage after EOF ignored
var/
tar: var: Cannot unlink: Directory not empty
var/tmp/
tar: var/tmp: Cannot unlink: Directory not empty
var/tmp/.keep
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors


and emerge remains thus broken. Looks like another painful reinstall. :-(

Changing the original subject to reflect the fact that 2.0.6 and 2.0.7 are problematic as well.

every time you upgrade portage, the db is rebuild again... maybe things go wrong with the conversion of the old db to the new one ... This could explain why the builds from scratch work & upgrades don't.

Just a thought

The problem is, that doesn't work either. I started a stage 1 install on another partition, and emerge 2.0.7 was so badly broken that "emerge system" went precisely as far as merging emerge-2.0.7. Fortunately 2.0.8 appears to work without problems so far.
