Updating Gentoo

Today, I started the task of updating my home_network gentoo hosts since its been a while.

What a mess I have run into, baselayout2+openrc has been marked stable, luckily I caught the newsitem not to reboot before fixing the /etc/init.d directory with etc-update or similar tools.

Next up, I have tons of broken packages and revdep-rebuilt wont get me out of the mess at once. So, I have to manually track packages who’s dependency libs are broken (DirectFB I am looking into you!) , which thankfully is not all that difficult because of the q-toolkit (qdepends and qdepends -r). Still, i would like to use 1-command to update my whole host as advertised on www.gentoo.org.
