The goal of these instructions is to provide Funtoo Linux users with a reliable, consistent set of instructions for upgrading Funtoo Linux from 1.2 to 1.3. Please assist in ensuring that these instructions are complete and guide users through any potential complications. Since this is a wiki, make changes to the page that are needed to make these instructions 100% reliable. Thank you!
Set Release and Sync
/etc/ego.conf, set the release to 1.3:
[global] release = 1.3
root # ego sync
Optionally Remove Xorg-Server
1.3-release contains a completely reworked xorg-server, and as such, it is best to remove your old xorg-server prior to updating:
root # emerge -C xorg-server
Now, proceed to perform a system upgrade followed by a world upgrade:
root # emerge -auDN @system root # emerge -auDN @world
Upgrading to 1.3 will remove any 32-bit compatibility on your system, as we have deprecated multilib support! Please be aware of this before starting the upgrade process.
