Chaos Mind getting into order

I got an error today trying to upgrade a gentoo cluster:

[blocks B ] >=sys-fs/udev-126 (“>=sys-fs/udev-126” is blocking


emerge -u cryptsetup

Done! After try to reboot to check if the udev detects all your network devices correctly.

It’s now possible to cancel a sended email (but just 5 seconds after sending it)! Awesome feature! Check it at Gmail Labs.

I found at my /var/log/syslog:

syslog-ng[4102]: Internal error, duplicate configuration elements refer to the same persistent config; name=’affile_dd_writers(/dev/tty12)’

So I checked my /etc/syslog-ng/syslog-ng.conf and I found that:

$ grep ‘/dev/tty12’ /etc/syslog-ng/syslog-ng.conf
destination kern { file(“/var/log/kern.log”); file(“/dev/tty12”); };
destination console_all { file(“/dev/tty12”); };

After reading docs, I didn’t find any destination having 2 files entries. Great 🙂 It looks like a typo. So I made some changes (a easy one):

$ diff /etc/syslog-ng/syslog-ng.conf.bak /etc/syslog-ng/syslog-ng.conf
< destination kern { file(“/var/log/kern.log”); file(“/dev/tty12”); };

> destination kern { file(“/var/log/kern.log”); };
> destination kern { file(“/dev/tty12”); };

Ok, got it working again.

Today I got this problem on my new gentoo cluster:

[ebuild U ] sys-fs/e2fsprogs-1.41.2 [1.40.9]
[ebuild N ] sys-libs/e2fsprogs-libs-1.41.2 USE=”nls”
[blocks B ] sys-libs/ss (is blocking sys-libs/e2fsprogs-libs-1.41.2)
[blocks B ] <sys-fs/e2fsprogs-1.41 (is blocking sys-libs/e2fsprogs-libs-1.41.2)
[blocks B ] sys-libs/com_err (is blocking sys-libs/e2fsprogs-libs-1.41.2)
[blocks B ] sys-libs/e2fsprogs-libs (is blocking sys-libs/ss-1.40.9, sys-libs/com_err-1.40.9)

The problem is because now both ss and com_err are part of e2fsprogs-libs. To fix this:

emerge -auDNv –fetchonly world
emerge -C ss com_err
emerge -auDNv –oneshot e2fsprogs-libs e2fsprogs
emerge -auDNv world

This was annoying…
