AttributeError: 'ElementTree' object has no attribute 'getiterator'




Just installed next for the first time, a couple of minutes ago.

What is this error all about?



equery u net-fs/nfs-utils
Traceback (most recent call last):
 File "/usr/lib/python-exec/python3.9/equery", line 38, in <module>

The issue is python3.9, the bug report has the details:

FL-10643 [next]: equery has problems getting the use flags from ebuilds

A workaround would be to install dev-lang/python-3.7.16,then use eselect python list, and eselect python set the [  ] by  python3.7 so it becomes [1]

rj@funtoo-next ~ $ ego query v python
 dev-lang/python| slot|            repo
     * 2.7.18-r1|     | python-kit/next
        * 3.7.16|   /m| python-kit/next
          3.8.16|     | python-kit/next
        * 3.9.16|     | python-kit/next
         3.10.11|     | python-kit/next
rj@funtoo-next ~ $ eselect python list
Available Python interpreters, in order of preference:
  [1]   python3.7
  [2]   python3.9
  [3]   python2.7 (fallback)
