PNG-file of flowchart
Vector-file of process (1/2)
Vector-file of process (2/2)
Description John Herdy 2002-08-02 11:07:55 UTC
I have created a flowchart (included as vector and png) of possible situations when upgrading a package. I'm not aware of Portage being prepared for all situations. To prepare Portage for all situations we need 3 USE-flags (i.e. libupdate, libupdaterisk, libupdateoverwrite). If more information is required please let me know. If an other format is required let me know. I really appriciate your opinion on this. Regards, John Herdy PS. I apologise for the lack of quality, I was in a hurry.

Comment 5 John Herdy 2002-08-02 17:15:50 UTC
I think your page didn't load completely. I have tried to open the attachment from multiple computers but had no problems. Would you please retry and confirm/decline if it works. Maybe someone else can try it also? Regards, John Herdy.

The PNG works for me.
Comment 7 SpanKY 2002-08-13 10:23:52 UTC
it works for me too ... it was just the image viewer i used showed it as completely black (was paint shop pro ...) i just didnt post an additional comment since it would take up useless space ;)
Comment 8 Brian Harring 2004-04-08 20:10:36 UTC
Technically an enhancement, so marking it as such. Side note, any, activity?
Comment 9 crontraconstantium 2004-07-10 13:31:20 UTC
Shouldn't those be FEATURES, not USE flags?
Comment 10 Brian Harring 2005-02-27 21:39:41 UTC
Slapping this one shut. explanation of ideas here is required- something more then just a flowchart. What's this address? Where is the failing of *current* portage in comparison, etc?
