Boyz 'N Apache

Hi Everyone,

Another late-breaking update from Devrel News.  This just in: Michael
Stewart has officially joined our apache team.  As of a day ago, he's
had his  <at> gentoo address, and just moments ago, I myself was live on the
scene as he did his cvs checkout.  Er, that is to say, I was on irc and
he was on irc while it was happening.  It was a very exciting moment,
however, and a good time was had by all.

So, his /nick is, in fact, vericgar, and we're offering a 30-point
reward for anyone who can figure out what it means.  We don't know,
we're hoping you will.  I'm not even sure Michael himself knows, but
anything's possible, I suppose.

And he's from Spokane, Washington (the state not the DC), where he lives
with his fiancee.  The future mrs. vericgar was not able to attend the
cvs checkout, but she did send him a telephone greeting during the
proceedings.

Next up, is the latest doppler weather from our weather center (ie, the
computer next door).

Love,

--

Yay.  I might actually manage to escape Apache duties soon, and get my life 
back ;-)

Not if you scare him off like all the other apache devs ;) You just need to keep
that little secret better kept.

About linux-headers, making stages with catalyst

Hi!

Well, I just got subscribed to this list... I don't know if I'm a gentoo
developer, but I think only here I'll find an answer to this question.

I'm a user of catalyst; I'm trying to make stages for some different
arquitectures, which use the newest portage and _at least_ linux 2.6 headers.
I'm using the profile portage/profiles/default-linux/x86/2004.2, and there are
virtuals which refer to linux 2.6.

When catalyst tries to build stage 1 (from a stage 3), it creates a "stage1root"
in /tmp. There are copied the portage profile, and little more. Then, "emerge"
is called for installing the base packages, using environment variable "ROOT".
That "emerge" call, as a dependence, tries to install "linux-headers". In a
similar case, using the same profile, it happens that "emerge" tries to install
"gentoo-sources-2.4..." when emerging "device-mapper" (which depends on
virtual/linux-source).

Where does "emerge" read that it has to install "2.4" things? There are only the
"virtuals" in the profile, isn't it? And they relate to 2.6... I really don't
know how to tell emerge not to use "2.4" things, as I know only that he reads
the "virtuals" for satisfying virtuals' dependencies.

I hope I wrote my problem clear enough. I'm not too good writting in English. :)

Thanks!

OK, I know nothing about catalyst, and am just a user generally lurking on
the dev list, but... this one's a portage question at least in part, and I
/think/ I can answer that side of it.

Virtuals, in portage, mean any single package of a group of packages (all
with provides=<the virtual in question>) may meet the requirements.  If
one is already installed, great, that satisfies the requirement.  If no
such literal package fulfilling the requirement is yet installed, however,
portage falls back to a default choice.

What you have here is portage falling back to a 2.4 default choice, a 2.4
kernel and kernel-headers, while you want 2.6 versions.  For a live
install, you'd simply install your chosen 2.6 version which would then
provide the virtual you needed.

Thanks a lot for the answers.

The default choice is specified in the virtuals, isn't it?

Ok, I'll just try the 2004.3 profile. I thought 2004.2 had 2.6 virtuals.

I made this profile and I can assure you that 2.4 headers and a 2.4
kernel are the defaults for it and the 2004.3 profile.  There is not a
x86 profile in the portage tree that does not have 2.4 as the defaults
yet.

This is expected behavior thanks to the profile's virtuals.

You are correct in that the virtuals file is read.  The easiest way
would be for you to create your own profile and use that instead.
