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
Make sure you have
ego 2.6.3 or later installed!
/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
Optionally Retarget Pure64
If you are running a
pure64 build of Funtoo Linux, you will need to run the following command to update your
/etc/portage/make.profile/parent file to no longer reference the
pure64 arch profile, as it has been deprecated.
Run the following command:
root # epro arch x86-64bit root ##y##WARNING: Previous value: x86-64bit -- typically, user should not change this. === Enabled Profiles: === arch: x86-64bit build: current subarch: intel64-westmere flavor: core mix-ins: mediaformat-gfx-common mix-ins: mediaformat-gfx-extra >>> Set arch to x86-64bit. Updating profiles at /etc/portage/make.profile/parent...
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.
Optionally Update Kernel
If you were not using
debian-sources-lts before, you may want to upgrade to this kernel. Do this as follows:
root # emerge -av debian-sources-lts root # ego boot update
Depending on your
/etc/boot.conf settings, you may need to tweak the file in order to have
debian-sources-lts selected by default.
Remember to rebuild any necessary kernel modules!
This can be achieved with:
root # emerge -av @module-rebuild --exclude debian-sources-lts
At this point, we recommend rebooting the system to ensure you are running in the new environment:
root # reboot
