Man, those must be tiny packages. I just completed -uD
world which took 351 packages totalling ~800M

At the end of an emerge process I saw two
recommendations: etc-update and ?-update. The exact
name escapes me and I can't find it in the logs. It
seems pretty significant with 100+ updates pending. Do
you recall the full name?

Emerge recommends that you run 'etc-update' and 'revdep-rebuild' after
updating.

modules-update if you have out-of-tree kernel modules

env-update follwed by '. /etc/profile/ to avoid the hassle of logging
out and back in just to update the environment

possibly conf-update which does the same thing as etc-update, just with
a much nicer ui that is easier to see what is going on

No it was none of those. It was the same format as
that for etc-upate, Bold yellow text followed by
recommended action. And in the line right next to it.
IIRC it would appear at the end of some of the
successful emerges, just not the last one, and there
wasn't enough in the buffer to scroll back for it.

I 'tail'ed some likely suspects in /var/log/portage
but it didn't show. 'grep'ing emerg.log for "update"
only finds the --update switch.

I'm all askeerd to reboot before finding out what it
was ;(

did you grep all the files in /var/log/portage/elog/ as well? That's
where such notifications are normally stored.


Some more likely candidates are gcc-config, java-config, perhaps
python-updater or maybe one of these:

nazgul ~ # ls -al /sbin/*update /usr/sbin/*update

Was it dispatch-conf by any chance? It does the same thing as
etc-update. 100+, WOW. he he he

I'm not going to tell how many times I hit the tab key when trying to
type in those commands. ;-)

cfg-update, maybe? So far the best Gentoo config file updater I've used.

HTH...

I here use dispatch-conf instead of etc-update. I just change /etc/dispatch-conf.conf to the following:


use-rcs=yes
and
diff="colordiff -Nu %s %s | less --no-init --QUIT-AT-EOF"


which requires rcs and colordiff to be merged. It's fantastic for updating the conf files.

Regards,

Saffi
