Updating gcc gentoo

07-Dec-2019 01:28

Just update what you need to, including base layout and portage, and as someone already said, be careful with etc-update.

This kind of goes along with what tdb said but do an emerge -up world first to see what packages it wants to upgrade.

Maybe consider Xorg (emerge -C xfree first), QT if you are using KDE, then an "emerge world -va" and you should be all set to sit back and wait. The antialiasing really looks good on the laptop LCD.

You might even consider an "emerge depclean -p" first and clean things up a little. Only problem that I have is that Gnome kept insisting that it needed xfree86.

You may either issue the following two commands or open another login shell for this.

No matter what you do, you should verify that the active gcc version is the one you wanted to switch to: gcc (Gentoo 4.6.2-r1 p1.4, pie-0.5.0) 4.6.2 Copyright (C) 2011 Free Software Foundation, Inc.

Then probably the latest gcc, glibc, etc (if system doesn't pull these in).Sticker You is your one-stop shop to make your business stick! All trademarks are the property of their respective owners. Use code DISTRO10 at the checkout page to apply your discount. The newest version of etc-update automerges trivial updates, so that should help.Oh yeah, and be prepared for emerge -u world to go more than 24 hours.

Of course I did this several months ago so things may have changed.
