Python Updater Deprecation

Python-updater is no longer part of Funtoo Linux.

By Oleg / December 6, 2014

As some users have noticed, the python-updater package, a tool for scanning and rebuilding python packages after major Python version updates is now removed. As of Nov 28, python-updater is no longer required. After merging new version of python ebuilds, the following steps are required:

Portage rebuild

# emerge --oneshot sys-apps/portage

This ensures that unconditional dependencies are properly installed.

Python Variables

In Funtoo Linux, PYTHON variables are set automatically in profile. In case PYTHON_* variables are manually set in /etc/portage/make.conf , such as PYTHON_ABIS="2.7 3.3", and/or /etc/portage/package.use, such as app-category/pkgname python_abis_3.3 , then change them accordingly to a version you which you upgraded. Example: PYTHON_ABIS="2.7 3.4", python_abis_3.4. This requires updating Portage again:

# emerge --nodeps --oneshot sys-apps/portage

This will rebuild portage independently of package dependencies, i.e if packages with old sys-apps/portage[python_abis_3.3] dependencies still present.

Changing the Python Active Version

This can be achieved by using eselect.

# eselect python --python3 python3.4

This command sets python 3 interpreter to version 3.4. Choose the one you upgrade to.

World update

Update your world.

# emerge --update --deep --newuse @world
