Since they really point to the same packages, if one is already using development-sources and linux26-headers, it's possible to have them with the new names, using an appropriate /etc/portage/package.unmask file. That's what I did (sort of mini-howto, "Works For Me" (tm), FWIW): - I had development-sources-2.6.11_rc5 and linux26-headers-126.96.36.199-r2 - emerge -C development-sources - emerge -C linux26-headers - echo "sys-kernel/vanilla-sources ~x86" >> /etc/portage/package.keywords - echo "sys-kernel/linux-headers ~x86" >> /etc/portage/package.keywords (just changed the old development-sources and linux26-headers entries) - echo "sys-kernel/vanilla-sources" >> /etc/portage/package.unmask - echo "<=sys-kernel/linux-headers-188.8.131.52-r2" >> /etc/portage/package.unmask (the latter I did since I don't want linux-headers-2.6.10 yet) - emerge linux-headers (brings in linux headers 184.108.40.206-r2) - emerge vanilla-sources (brings in linux-2.6.11_rc5) and I have the same setup as before, but with the new names. -- If you give someone a program, you will frustrate them for a day; if you teach them how to program, you will frustrate them for a lifetime. -- email@example.com mailing list
