And calling someone who is trying to help you "stupid" is not very
mature. You are on your own


Sorry... I should have said 'That is stupid'... I didn't mean that *you*
were stupid, I meant that what you said was stupid, and it was... I see
people use wtf on lists all the time, so saying I shouldn't use it is -
well, stupid...

Every mailing list is like its own group of friends and acquaintances,
and has its own social rules. Just because some lists uses phrases
like WTF doesn't mean it fits into the cultures of the rest.

Not that _I_ care, but obviously others do, and so I filter myself accordingly.

Basically any slotted package works this way. Upgrades within the same
slot replace the previous version within the same slot. You can only
have one version installed in each slot at any given time.

Using eix we can see the versions currently in portage (as of my last
sync) for each slot:

[i] sys-devel/gcc
Available versions:
(2.95) *2.95.3-r9 ~*2.95.3-r10^s
(3.1) *3.1.1-r2
(3.2) **3.2.2^s *3.2.3-r4
(3.3) (~)3.3.6-r1^s
(3.4) 3.4.6-r2^s
(4.0) ~*4.0.4^s
(4.1) 4.1.2^s
(4.2) (~)4.2.4-r1^s
(4.3) (~)4.3.3-r2^s{tbz2} 4.3.4^s{tbz2} (~)4.3.5^s 4.3.6-r1^s
(4.4) (~)4.4.2^s{tbz2} (~)4.4.3-r3^s 4.4.4-r2^s{tbz2}
4.4.5^s{tbz2} 4.4.6-r1^s 4.4.7^s
(4.5) (~)4.5.1-r1^s{tbz2} (~)4.5.2^s{tbz2} 4.5.3-r2^s{tbz2} 4.5.4^s
(4.6) (~)4.6.0^s (~)4.6.1-r1^s (~)4.6.2^s (~)4.6.3^s{tbz2}
(4.7) [M]**4.7.0^s [M]**4.7.1^s

So, for example, you can see the 4.5 slot contains 4.5.1, 4.5.2,
4.5.3, 4.5.4. You can only have one of those installed at any given
time.

Off the top of my head, the only packages that routinely have slots
for every patch release are kernel packages.

Well, then this simple little command should help you refresh your
memory. It shows every install and uninstall of gcc on your system.

With 8 years of emerge.log you are good to go

genlop -ul | grep 'sys-devel/gcc-[0-9]'
