Shaftognilor, so emerge -C esound?
gnilorShafto, yeah, btw that "<" implies that it's a version conflict, the version currently on there is too old
Janosemerge -aCv esound
just in case, so you see if it flushes something important out.. you never know :)
Shaftognilor, well it works now thanks :)
[R]summatusmentis: you install grub to the mbr regardless
summatusmentis: but no, you dont need a boot partition
summatusmentis[R], ok, yeah, minor brain fart for a minute
Chicago[R]: summatusmentis: The idea of the boot partition is so that it is not mounted after you've booted... so that you don't overwrite your boot partition.
Fieldythat and if you lose power or something lame, there is less chance of it borking stuff in /boot
[R]Chicago: accidently overwriting your kernel is the least of your worries if you are in the habbit of accidently overwriting stuff
OH NO!
your kernel is corrupt!
what ever will you do
let's forget that the main partition is borked along with it too
Chicago[R]: boot the backup that's automatically gonna sit there after you do 'make install' with your kernel.
[R]Chicago: the point is... anything that can happen if you don't have a boot partition to the files in yoru boot directory is more likely gonna happen to the rest of the files in your root filesystem
i.e. your kernel is the least of your worries
Chicago[R]: Actually, I have a complaint in this category... grub-install always likes to rewrite my device.map ..... so when the world goes through and recompiles grub... I get a b0rked device map on the next boot.
[R]grub install?
who uses that carp
ChicagoWe do... me myself and I like it.
Unanimous vote...
[R]yes, because its so difficult to type root() setup()
g2userare there any issues with emerging more than one package in parallel?
Fieldyg2user: generally no, other than it slows both down a heck of a lot
g2userFieldy: thx
Chicagog2user: yeah, lately I've noticed some specific issues with portage having already locked some files... which the second emerge will complain about.
Fieldy: Have you had portage locks?
FieldyChicago: only on downloads
marienzChicago: downloads are locked, vdb changes are locked.
Fieldylocks are good. makes stuff wait until they are gone, the alternative is collisions and other badness
marienzChicago: actual compilation should run in parallel.
Chicagomarienz: and they do compile in parallel... I only recently noticed any locking
marienzChicago: vdb locking is still fairly new.
g2userThe reason I ask is because I emerged qcad and openoffice in parallel and qcad seemed to enter into some compilation loop...now it looks like one of the OO prereqs (glibc-2.5) is in a loop.
ChicagoSomething else I was wondering about.... how come when I emerge -uDNav and there is nothing to do... if I emerge -ef... there is still new code that portage wants to download and compile on the emerge emptytree world?
[R]g2user: well if they both depend on the same stuff... all bets are off
Chicago: because you dont have those files in your distfiles
g2userok. I'll try them individually and see what happens
