Sabayon daily repo


can someone help me with activating the daily repo for sabayon? The old wiki isn’t available anymore.

Thanks in advance

Try to run as root:

equo repo disable sabayon-weekly
equo repo enable

If it does not work try this first:

cd /etc/entropy/repositories.conf.d/

Update then:

equo up --force && equo u -a --purge && equo conf update

Svantoviit, It worked for me too; without any problems. Thank you! :smile:

Very few updates are available now, also this error after upgrade:

:radioactive: Hi. My name is Bug Reporter. I am sorry to inform you that the program crashed. Well, you know, shit happens.
:radioactive: But there’s something you could do to help me to be a better application.
:radioactive: Now I am showing you what happened. Don’t panic, I’m here to help you.

Now there are many updates but how can I fix the error?
Fixed: equo/entropy doesn’t work with >=portage-3

If you want to mix entropy and portage packages you have to be extra careful and you NEVER EVER update portage via emerge.
