This is one of the risks of mixing stable and testing packages.
env-update and env-update.sh are provided by portage

portage provides env-update and env-update.sh, which is also provided
my baselayout-1. But neither openrc nor baselayout-2 does provide
env-update or env-update.sh. My problem is,

Well, I know that portage provides env-update and env-update.sh. But an
older version of baselayout-2 did provide it (as a symbolic link to
/sbin/rc).


The question is, does Gentoo need env-update for proper booting? If yes,
how does baselayout-2 work around this, since it does not provide
env-update and does not depend upon portage? And how do you chroot into
a baselayout-2 environment, where portage is not installed?


To make a long question short, is it a bug, that recent baselayout-2
does not provide env-update?


Regards,
Marc
