Updating gentoo kernel

Now if someone can tell me if I can upgrade the pool features yet without becoming unbootable, I'd appreciate it.

Depending on what gets updated and how many updates there are, this could take a while.

The resume history is capable of storing two merge lists.

After one resume list completes, it is possible to invoke . Dependencies are recalculated for remaining packages and any that have unsatisfied dependencies or are masked will be automatically dropped.

The name was chosen to reflect the potential speed improvements of machine-specific optimization, which is a major feature of Gentoo.

Note: You might need to rm -rf /usr/local/portage before running the above command if you see any complaints about git and /usr/local/portage.

This is probably not the best solution, and I will look into it as time permits. If you’ve put any custom ebuilds of your own in /usr/local/portage, please back them up so you can replace them.

If there is an update to the kernel (rt-sources), run, as root, after the above command has been run: Where “x” is the number of the latest kernel from eselect kernel list.

If you are low on/out of space on the boot partition, you can manually delete older kernels and re-run grub-mkconfig.

The three kernel files for each kernel version are initramfs-genkernel-x86_64-(version), kernel-genkernel-x86_64-(version) and System.map-genkernel-x86_64-(version).
