Description Josh Lamontagne 2007-03-09 21:06:30 UTC
I recently upgraded from portage-2.1.2-r9 to portage- on an amd64 box. This upgrade introduced a move from /usr/lib to /usr/lib64 for many portage-related files. After refreshing my environment with `source /etc/profile; env-update` everything appeared to be working correctly, except for etc-update which failed with the following message:

~ # etc-update
/usr/sbin/etc-update: line 444: /usr/lib/portage/bin/portageq: No such file or directory
Exiting: Need write access to etc
~ #

Line 443 of /usr/sbin/etc-update:

eval $(/usr/lib/portage/bin/portageq envvar -v CONFIG_PROTECT \

Changing the above to point to '/usr/lib64/portage/bin/portageq' fixed the problem, but isn't an elegant solution.

We can remove the /usr/lib/portage/bin/ prefix since etc-update should be able to find portageq via path.  Isn't there usually a /usr/lib -> lib64 symlink though?

This is fixed in svn r6203.

Usually yes, but hardened's basesystem is messed up in that regard.

That was a bug in the experimental 2006.0 amd64 multilib hardened stages. You can fix it by hand after unpacking, and everything works fine. I even repacked those stages over a month ago to fix that problem.
