On a 586 machine, 600 MHz, 128 meg of ram. python-updater just sits:
* Starting Python Updater from 2.4 to 2.5 :
and never completes. I tried several times, same result.
The machine only an infrequently used web server, serving up about 6
static content web pages.
Does python-updater require more ram to run? the machine is
minamalistic, it runs apache2 and not much else.
I did recently switch the profile to 2008. but is has
had 2 emerge -u world updates (along with emerge sync).
I've even run revdep-rebuild and
emerge -p --update --deep --with-bdeps=y world'
which comes back clean.
