Python Multiplexing(And another Ego update)
An update to ego-1.1.3-r5By Oleg / August 25, 2017
As many may noticed with recent meta-repo updates a difficulty with
PYTHON_TARGETS appeared due to new python multiplexing functionality in app-admin/ego has landed into meta-repo. This happened little bit too early than planned, hence the unexpected surprise. In a few words, python multiplexing is the new way of
PYTHON_TARGETS handle. Previously python variables were hardcoded in profiles's
make.defaults with ability to override in
/etc/portage/make.conf. Now meta-repo scripts automatically set the required python settings. This functionality also coupled with kits and python version updates, which can be performed in one step. More on this will be added in future news items.
The fix is following:
root # ego sync root # USE="python_single_target_python3_4 python_targets_python3_4" emerge -1 --nodeps ego root # epro update
It is needed to set python_single_target_python3_4 and python_targets_python3_4 useflags temporarily to be able to upgrade ego.
