Description Amit Pansare 2003-05-11 03:08:50 UTC
Huge compile list are always left at night times, when PC is not much used. And 
generally these updates are left unattended.
Even if there is problem with one build, the installation process process stop. 
Is it possible to do a session install. LEts say we do "emerge -up --deep 
world" And it makes kind of sessions for the package and its dependencies. So 
if one session fails, it moves to new session (new set of install that are not 
dependent on this previous install).
Can save a lot of time, expecialy while doing unattended installs.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
Comment 1 Stefan Schweizer (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-11-27 04:18:38 UTC
emerge first; emerge second; emerge third; emerge fourth

should work here, can we close this bug, as there exists such an obvious solution?

looks dupish to bug 12768, about portage failing to install along a certain branch of the depgraph and continuing along later.

> emerge first; emerge second; emerge third; emerge fourth

Parse the package list from "emerge -puD world" and then do a separate
invocation of "emerge --oneshot =$cpv" for each package?  That would seem to
accomplish the goal of this bug (and bug 12768).
