How to update kits.

Question

Hi,

 

When i use "ego sync", all kits are automatically switched in "prime[-v]"

 

Ego sync which commands performs?
 
Can eix-sync be used to update the "portage + kits" or not?
 
I'm a bit confused

 

 

I'd like to know how to update the entire tree maintaining my impostation (master or prime for the various kits)

 

Last question: i see that:

auto-sync = no

Is the good choice or it is better to switch to "Yes" ?

 

Thanx. and excuse my ignorance.

if you use only prime branch, then use "ego sync"

if you have some of kits with other branches enabled (such as master), do not use "ego sync"

to update kits with other branches enabled, use following sequence of commands:

 

cd /var/git/meta-repo

git pull

git submodule update

chown -R portage:portage /var/git/meta-repo

 

eix-sync does not update meta-repo, neither default branches nor any other branches. after manually updating meta-repo or if you use default branches and ego sync, you can use eix-update.
