emerge fails for exiv2-0.26: VERIFY FAILED!



In a half-woken state this morning, I posted this to the Gentoo forums, where I was told that this is '...an ancient version of exiv2, riddled with security holes' so it sounds like this package needs updating from Gentoo upstream.

$ sudo emerge exiv2

Could i see your /etc/ego.conf ?

I'm on 1.2ß

	[ebuild   R   ] media-gfx/exiv2-0.26_p20171104-r1  USE="nls png xmp -doc -exampl
es -webready" ABI_X86="32 (64) (-x32)"  

Anyway i think you're not with 1.2ß kits.

If You're with 1.1, i think that you can upgrade your system to 1.2ß ....

To make it possible, You can use the howto ^^

I reccomend >=gentoo-sources [experimental] 4.16.8 to have a patched kernel vs "Meltdown" & "Spectre" without graphical troubles if you'll use GNome3 desktop.

Aha, thank you! I will see if I can upgrade. I am not sure how to check my version but I'll research as you suggest.

My ego.conf is:


$ cat /etc/ego.conf
# This is the ego.conf file


# You can set your default kits here. Unset kits will use the Funtoo default prime/master
# branch by default.

# python-kit = 3.6-prime

Ok. You're not in 1.2beta.

You can try to upgrade. 

To see about your situation about kits, use

	ego kit list


For that I think that can be a  good thing to update at first python and that python3.6 will be the first choice (eselect python set python3.6).

Good work ^^
