After having a problem with running emerge update world - where it ended up stopping - either after portage 2.0.9 og after trying to emerge gnome-core (can't remember anymore) - I fixed it by running emerge -C gnome-core and then emerge gaim (which requires gnome-core). This worked fine.

My problem is that now when I run emerge world update it doesn't find anything to do.. even though f.ex. libsigc++ is v1.0.4-r1 and the latest available is v1.1.11 according to "emerge search libsig".

Do you have any ideas?

It would mean that libsigc is not listed in the set of "world" packages or their dependency. By doing a brute-force check on the portage tree, this is the set of things that have a dependency on libsig:
Code:

atlas janus libuta centericq ickle lostirc libfwbuilder libicq2000 gtkmm

You may have uninstalled one of these packages that depends on libsig, I guess.

I ran emerge -C gnome-core - and then reinstalled it - that's it. I thought world meant EVERY package?

What do I do now? I would very much like to show those annoying debian users, that gentoo has just an easy upgrade path, as their "apt-get upgrade".

AFAIK, world means every package listed in /var/cache/edb/world.

is there any reason for f.ex. libsigc++ (the package I talk about, which isn't upgraded - there are probably others - atleast I know of evolution) to not be in /var/cache/edb/world ?

What do you guys do? do you use emerge update world? and if so, is your libsigc++ upgraded? (do "emerge search libsigc" to check).

I really hope I can soon show off the smart update feature - equivilant to apt-get upgrade from Debian - and the *BSD stuff.

The code path that adds things to /var/cache/edb/world is in /usr/lib/portage/bin/emerge - look for "favorites". That section must not have been tripped by the method you took to get it installed. You can see if, for example, an unmerge followed by an explicit merge of it adds it, or you could take the easy route out and just cat >> it to the end of the world file.

libsigc++ is not in the /var/cache/edb/world file - but evolution is - and if I do a emerge search evolution I get:

* net-mail/evolution
Latest version Available: 1.0.7
Latest version Installed: 1.0.5-r2
[SNIP info]

which means that when I do emerge update world it should pick it up and upgrade it, no?

It doesn't :-(

It stille doesn't work.

I just ran emerge sync (and also tried emerge rsync - seems to be the same thing)

output in the end:

Number of files: 16397
Number of files transferred: 6027
Total file size: 17908086 bytes
Total transferred file size: 7998889 bytes
Literal data: 3875984 bytes
Matched data: 4122905 bytes
File list size: 367722
Total bytes written: 181136
Total bytes read: 3085481

wrote 181136 bytes read 3085481 bytes 23931.26 bytes/sec
total size is 17908086 speedup is 5.48

A lot of new files.. Xfree updates and so on..

The next command should output something:

amd root # emerge update world -p

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

Calculating world dependencies ...done!

Nothing.. is Portage really that unstable? How can I fix it, so that It can update automagically again??

Still same result - no updates :-(

This seems like a major bug in portage? is the portage system really this unstable?
Can anybody tell me, why it f.ex. doesn't propose an update to evolution when I'm running v1.0.5-r2 and if I do emerge search evolution - it tells me the latest is v1.0.7?

This all happened after I tried emerge update world the first time, and it stopped after a while - with some crapped compilation. I removed gnome-core and reinstalled it - but this still does not work..

I'm really sad about this, and don't understand how portage can break so suddenly :-(

Curious... If you do "emerge -pu evolution", does it want to do something?

Yes it works fine..

Was ig gnome that failed, or something else? You mentioned it could have been portage 2.09.
Have you checked the RESCUE file in the portage subdir?
/usr/portage/sys-apps/portage/files/README.RESCUE

I only remember that a emerge update world showed a Red B (blocked) in front of gnome-core - which was fixed when I unemerged gnome-core and reemerged it.

I tried to do what the README.RESCUE says, and confirmed that emerge --version said it was version 1.8.19 - and then I emerged portage - and it still says no updates.

I also tried to run "emerge update world -p" when emerge was at version 1.8.19 - still no updates according to portage :-(

What is wrong? emerge works fine with everything else, as you could see from my update example before (with evolution).. it's just the auto update feature that doesn't work - but that's a feature I really don't like to live without :-(

Have you tried to emerge portage-2.0.9 again?

Shouldn't it complain about
