If portage complains about packages you can use --exclude to get a partial list emerge -e --fetchonly @world #update system emerge -e @system #update config files. dispatch-config #alternately use etc-update or preferred tool #try to update world emerge -auv ND @world #if that fails (it will), try to update in pieces where But why?

We are fresh out of crystal balls Here is the exact commands I would plan use in a non-X terminal with comments (denoted with #) as to why.
For new projects time is of the essence: there is typically some idea-polishing which must occur before the proposing the idea formally.Those with unanswered questions should not hesitate to contact the Summer of Code mentors via the mailing list.Excitement is building with FOSDEM 2018 only a few days away.An advantage of having Gentoo as the base for this distro is its package manager, Portage, which has a system of enabling/disabling compile-time options for applications.This means application binaries can be tailored to the user’s computer hardware and the user’s needs.Gentoo Studio is an actively maintained, source-based, 64-bit desktop real-time Linux audio production system based on Gentoo Linux.
