Description Clemens Schwaighofer 2003-12-03 18:37:00 UTC
if I try to update rsync and set the command

emerge -p rsync

I get this

emerge: the "sync" action does not support "--pretend."

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:

I don't know how to handle that bug. because of backward compability I think
this is still in it (now it is sync to sync the portage tree). But how should I
(or anyone) update rsync easily? Well of course I could tell him the ebuild file
directly, but this is a bit stupid?

Comment 2 Andre Hinrichs 2003-12-04 06:13:17 UTC
As a workaround simply say
emerge -p net-misc/rsync
