[gentoo-portage-dev] Locales

2006-03-17 Thread tvali

Most of installation scripts of et locale are broken. Because of that,
i would like some way to configure portage in such way that it starts
with changing locale into english, then installs and then starts locale
back into estonian -- otherwise i have to do so by hand :)

[ there are some my, Tambet's, comments near that bug in topic ]-- tvali(e-mail: [EMAIL PROTECTED]; msn: 
[EMAIL PROTECTED];icq: 317-492-912)I
like net more than life, cause if i do something wrong, then people in
net will tell me that i do, so that i can fix it -- people in life will
tell others that i do.

Most of that work can be attributed to Brian Harring. For a real kicker
though, throw portdbapi.auxdbmodule = cache.metadata_overlay.database
into /etc/portage/modules and FEATURES=-metadata-transfer into make.conf.
Then rm -rf /var/cache/edb/dep. This one goes to Zac Medico, the current
release coordinator, and builds on Brian's work to cut out cache updating
altogether. New in pre6 and in need of testing - especially when
local modifications are made - but very promising.

Before I switched from rsync to cvs I used metadata_overlay all of the time.  
Andrew Gaffney has also reported good results with this module.  He share's the 
portage tree (including pre-generated rsync cache) via nfs and uses 
metadata_overlay on all the clients so that they pull pre-generated cache on 

Yep, still going strong through _pre6-r3 on multiple arches.
