Product: Gentoo Linux Reporter: Anton Bolshakov <anton.bugs>
Component: Current packagesAssignee: Gentoo Netmon project <netmon>
Severity: normal CC: zerochaos
Priority: Normal

Attachments: RFC of eselect-metasploit

Description Anton Bolshakov 2011-10-10 08:47:56 UTC

the current slots are:
	(0)	2.7
	(3.3)	(~)3.3.3
	(3.4)	(~)3.4.0 (~)3.4.1
	(3.5)	(~)3.5.0
	(3.6)	(~)3.6.0
	(3.7)	(~)3.7.0
	(4.0)	(~)4.0.0-r1 **9999

could you remove 2.7 (or re-slot it to 2.7) and move 9999 to the slot 0?

Comment 1 Anton Bolshakov 2011-10-10 09:41:12 UTC
Just to clarify, the reason for this change is that some people may use both stable 4.0 and development versions in the same time.

and I just realised, that gentoo is using slot 9999 in such cases. For example,
       (1.11)  1.11.1
       (9999)  **9999

This should be more logical.
Comment 2 Anton Bolshakov 2011-10-14 06:47:23 UTC
Next suggestion would be to create the symlink "/usr/lib/metasploit".
because some tools like SET ( has to point to metasploit location.

Probably, the ideal solution would be to create an eselect script to control that symlink later (see kernel.eselect or timidity.eselect).

RFC of eselect-metasploit

This is NOT to be used, by anyone, at anytime, for any reason.  This is basically a few sed lines different from kernel.eselect and just happens to look right.

I'm accepting comments on this, not submitting it for use.

eselect-metasploit is in the tree, slots are correct on all supported versions. I'll be discontinuing 2.7 shortly due to being outstandingly out of date.
