Hello!

After a long time I decided it's time to make a global package update so I ran:
Code:
emerge -uavDN world

Then I noticed that there are many packages that have in the USE list items like -XXXX* in green. I guess this means that I used them localy when I emerged the packages. My question is how can I make the update using the same USE flags when I emerged them in the first time? Do I have to scan all that list and insert them in the make.conf file?

Thanks alot.

How did you install the packages with USE flags in the first instance?

My guess is you did...

Code:

USE="-firefox xulrunner" emerge -av gnome-python-extras


This doesn't record what USE flags you've emerged a package with. To do that you should take advantage of /etc/portage/package.use...

Code:

echo 'dev-python/gnome-python-extras -firefox xulrunner' >> /etc/portage/package.use


So you'll have to go through the list and add appropriate entries for each package to /etc/portage/package.use

If however there is one flag that you've set for quite a few packages you might want to consider adding it to your USE="" entry in /etc/make.conf

Thanks for the answers... I solved this problem... Now it seems I have a space problem. / is mounted on a 12GB ext3 filesystem I can't do the update because all the free space was consumed. How can I delete all the files I don't need, the previous builds etc.

See this FAQ and have a search of the forums, there are tons of threads (although the forum search function isn't that hot, so I'd recommend using Google to do a site specific search on the forums).

remove all the failed emerge leftovers in /var/log/portage/*(if you haven't moved your default location)

It gets quite voluminous if you have many failed to compile packages.

Be prepared to post a
Code:
df -h
and your /etc/fstab at a minimum.

Also, a wee bit from the man:

Code:
# AUTOCLEAN enables portage to automatically clean out older or overlapping
#     packages from the system after every successful merge. This is the
#     same as running 'emerge -c' after every merge. Set with: "yes" or "no".
#     This does not affect the unpacked source. See 'noclean' below.
AUTOCLEAN="yes"


Check to see if you have this line in your /etc/make.conf. If not, add it.

More true of /var/tmp/portage/* where the packages get extracted and compilation occurs. /var/log/portage/* is simply where logs are kept.

I first realized I have no space through the df command. I deleted the 2.6.25 kernel sources, the portage tmp files and I got 4GB of free space. I hope it's enough to compile OpenOffice 3.0.

Thanks a lot for the answers. If I don't have space to buld OO, then I'll just get the binaries.

LE: I set up AUTOCLEAN=yes first time I installed Gentoo :). I wrote all the configuration files as good as I could at that moment and I'm very satsified about the result. This is the only problem I had with the system so far.

Good to hear. Just remember that everytime you have a package fail to compile. Look in your /var/tmp/portage/ dir for the remnants and blow them away.

Err, perhaps you should check what I wrote above. The log-files from failed ebuilds will be kicking around in /var/log/portage/ whilst the extracted source code and intermediary files from failed compilations will be in /var/tmp/portage/ The later of these two will have the largest size.
