Upgrade to compiz-fusion-0.8.6

Today, when I ran the regular update of my gentoo systems there was an update for compiz-fusion in portage. The compiz update did not work out of the box on my x8_64 systems, missing keywords, blocking packages, etc.

Here is the way I got it to work. The procedure is similar to the one I described in upgrade-to-compiz-fusion-0.82.

emerge -uND world

!!! All ebuilds that could satisfy “>=x11-plugins/compiz-plugins-main-0.8.6” have been masked.
!!! One of the following masked packages is required to complete your request:
– x11-plugins/compiz-plugins-main-0.8.6 (masked by: ~amd64 keyword)

Add to /etc/portage/package.keywords:

=x11-plugins/compiz-plugins-main-0.8.6 **
=x11-plugins/compiz-plugins-unsupported-0.8.6 **
=x11-plugins/compiz-plugins-extra-0.8.6 **
=x11-plugins/compiz-plugins-unsupported-0.8.4-r1 **

the last line is there just because I don´t know if there will be a newer version of compiz-plugins-unsuported or not.

emerge compiz-fusion

[blocks B ] x11-plugins/compiz-fusion-plugins-extra (“x11-plugins/compiz-fusion-plugins-extra” is blocking x11-plugins/compiz-plugins-extra-0.8.4-r1)
[blocks B ] x11-plugins/compiz-fusion-plugins-main (“x11-plugins/compiz-fusion-plugins-main” is blocking x11-plugins/compiz-plugins-main-0.8.4-r1)

emerge -C compiz-fusion-plugins-extra compiz-fusion-plugins-main compiz-fusion-plugins-unsupported

emerge compiz-fusion

Afterwards I had a working compiz-fusion-0.8.6.

Upgrade to compiz-fusion-0.8.2

Today, when I ran the regular update of my gentoo systems there was an update for compiz-fusion in portage. The compiz update did not work out of the box on my x8_64 systems, missing keywords, blocking packages, wrong manifests, etc.

Here is the way I got it to work:

emerge -uND world

!!! All ebuilds that could satisfy “~x11-plugins/compiz-plugins-main-0.8.2” have been masked.
!!! One of the following masked packages is required to complete your request:
– x11-plugins/compiz-plugins-main-0.8.2 (masked by: ~amd64 keyword)

Add to /etc/portage/package.keywords:

=x11-plugins/compiz-plugins-main-0.8.2 **
=x11-plugins/compiz-plugins-unsupported-0.8.2 **
=x11-plugins/compiz-plugins-extra-0.8.2 **

emerge compiz-fusion

[blocks B ] x11-plugins/compiz-fusion-plugins-extra (“x11-plugins/compiz-fusion-plugins-extra” is blocking x11-plugins/compiz-plugins-extra-0.8.2)
[blocks B ] x11-plugins/compiz-fusion-plugins-main (“x11-plugins/compiz-fusion-plugins-main” is blocking x11-plugins/compiz-plugins-main-0.8.2)
[blocks B ] x11-plugins/compiz-fusion-plugins-unsupported (“x11-plugins/compiz-fusion-plugins-unsupported” is blocking x11-plugins/compiz-plugins-unsupported-0.8.2)

emerge -C compiz-fusion-plugins-extra compiz-fusion-plugins-main compiz-fusion-plugins-unsupported

emerge compiz-fusion

!!! A file listed in the Manifest could not be found: /usr/portage/x11-plugins/compiz-plugins-extra/files/compiz-plugins-extra-no-gconf.patch

ebuild /usr/portage/x11-plugins/compiz-plugins-extra/compiz-plugins-extra-0.8.2.ebuild digest

Note: The generation of the digest is only a temporary solution. There should be the correct manifest in the portage tree.

emerge compiz-fusion

* Messages for package x11-wm/emerald-0.8.2:

cd /usr/portage/x11-wm/emerald/files/

ln -s emerald-0.7.8-ru.po.patch emerald-ru.po.patch

Note: The symlink is only a temporary solution. The file should be added to the portage tree.

ebuild /usr/portage/x11-wm/emerald/emerald-0.8.2.ebuild digest

emerge compiz-fusion

Afterwards I had a working compiz-fusion-0.8.2 .
