PHP and Kernel Updates
PHP and Kernel UpdatesBy Oleg / April 1, 2016
The following updates are now available in Funtoo Linux:
- PHP-5.6 package mask now dropped, which makes newer PHP available
- PHP_TARGETS are set to 5.6 by default
- Update to debian-sources-4.4.6.
A notice for
PHP_TARGETS. The default value set in the Funtoo profile is now
PHP_TARGETS="php5-6". This will cause all PHP-dependent packages to rebuild against 5.6 when you update your system using
emerge -auDN @world or a similar command.
If this is not desired behavior or your production boxes, you can avoid a php-5.6 upgrade by adding the following to
/etc/make.conf- An example make.conf file
debian-sources has been updated to version 4.4.6. This update brings better support for newer hardware, like Intel Skylake/Broadwell CPU, as well as newer WiFi chips. Other hardware may also benefit from this update. It is necessary to perform boot-loader changes after kernel update, via:
root # boot-update
