post-kits update profile problems



I am having troubles with epro and profiles post-update to kits.

Every time I execute epro I get back the python error message:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/epro", line 86, in <module>
    run_ego_module(install_path, action, ego_config, args)
  File "/usr/share/ego/python/ego_helpers.py", line 28, in run_ego_module
    mod = get_ego_module(install_path, modname)
  File "/usr/share/ego/python/ego_helpers.py", line 23, in get_ego_module
    return loader.load_module()
  File "<frozen importlib._bootstrap_external>", line 396, in _check_name_wrapper
  File "<frozen importlib._bootstrap_external>", line 817, in load_module
  File "<frozen importlib._bootstrap_external>", line 676, in load_module

  File "/usr/share/ego/modules/profile.ego", line 8, in <module>
    import portage
ImportError: No module named 'portage'

I suspect I missed something along the way prior to kits.

Suggestions? Help?

this is due to the portage and ego both are built for different python versions.

show output of eselect python list

I was starting to dig into that notion. Python emerging was giving me strange messages about python 3.5.3 being masked but package.mask is a zero byte sized file.

eselect python list
Available Python interpreters, in order of preference:
  [1]   python3.5
  [2]   python3.4 (fallback)
  [3]   python2.7 (fallback)

I am currently working through the "Broken python and portage" section of  http://www.funtoo.org/System_resurrection.

I can work with a temporary copy of python 3.6 but emerge of portage(ver 2.3.8) complains about:

 * Messages for package sys-apps/portage-2.3.8:

 * ERROR: sys-apps/portage-2.3.8::core-kit failed (prerm phase):
 *   distutils-r1.eclass could not be found by inherit()

and updating to python 3.6.1-r1 stops at:

	case no in \
		upgrade) ensurepip="--altinstall --upgrade" ;; \
		install|*) ensurepip="--altinstall" ;; \

you can do reinstall but now, it's maybe a good idea is to try using unmasked versions. so, now i guess it's python-3.6 is now the default python?

I suspect I had not maintained profile settings as well as I should. My fault for not paying attention to instructions. Confusion with past usage may have been the contributing cause of current problems.

When I did a "eselect profile show" I got the error message about profile settings not being found. When python/portage are completed, I'll try the epro command again to setup profile properly.


I cleaned out everything under /var/db/pkg and am in the process of reinstalling software using the method shown in the link I gave above for "Broken python and portage". There were a couple of circular dependencies to deal with (xz-utils/elt-patches, autoconfig, etc) and an error with libffi existing(rm existing /usr/lib64/libffi* files). Re-install appears to be going along well and the use flags given as to be used appear to be "sane".


Fingers crossed...
