Is there a documentation for knowing this variables, and what does
slot 0 means
Thanks and Regards
I would say man emerge and man portage for a start. As to slots, here
is how I understand it. For example, KDE currently has two slots: 3.5
and 4. Mine lists it this way:
root@smoker / # equery list -p kdelibs
[ Searching for package 'kdelibs' in all categories among: ]
* installed packages
[I--] [ ] kde-base/kdelibs-3.5.9-r4 (3.5)
* Portage tree (/usr/portage)
[-P-] [ ] kde-base/kdelibs-3.5.8-r4 (3.5)
[-P-] [ ~] kde-base/kdelibs-3.5.9 (3.5)
[-P-] [ ~] kde-base/kdelibs-3.5.9-r1 (3.5)
[-P-] [ ~] kde-base/kdelibs-3.5.9-r2 (3.5)
[-P-] [ ~] kde-base/kdelibs-3.5.9-r3 (3.5)
[-P-] [M~] kde-base/kdelibs-4.0.4 (kde-4)
[-P-] [M~] kde-base/kdelibs-4.0.5 (kde-4)
root@smoker / #
The first in the list is what I have installed, note the [I--] in the
list. The others are in portage but not installed. If I recall
correctly the [ ~] means it is keyworded. The [M~] means it is
keyworded and masked. Although some do, including myself, it is not
recommended to use masked or keyworded packages as they are not fully
tested or may have "issues". I do use them sometimes myself but not for
The slots are at the end. Note the (3.5) and (kde-4) at the end of each
one, that is the slots designation for the packages. If you choose, you
can have both slots installed at the same time.
I think the output is pretty much the same for eix, equery and emerge.
Someone correct me if I typed in a boo boo.
