Oneshot and migrating

Talk status
This discussion is done.

The installation instructions under "Emerge" call for:

root #emerge --ask --oneshot sys-fs/eudev

But under "Migrating from udev to eudev" it says:

root #emerge --ask sys-fs/eudev

This one is missing the --oneshot option. I assume that should be also used when migrating beween packages…

Also, instead of saying "Migrating from udev 216" perhaps we should say "Migrating from udev 216 or later" (assuming migrating from later versions is supposed to be just as easy of from 216), especially since udev-225-r1 has been stable for a while now. - dcljr (talk) 19:26, 17 January 2017 (UTC)

--oneshot has been added into second command. also i think maybe required to add info about "emerge -C sys-fs/udev" before "emerge --ask --oneshot sys-fs/eudev". this packages block himself. --Cronolio (talk) 22:21, 21 January 2017 (UTC)
Emerge was able to handle the blocking automatically for me when I upgraded from udev-225-r1 to eudev-3.1.5 (IOW I just did emerge -1 eudev without first unmerging udev). - dcljr (talk)
oops. yes it working. just on my system eudev is masked. he he --Cronolio (talk) 09:34, 22 January 2017 (UTC)

Migrating from systemd-utils[udev]

Talk status
This discussion is still ongoing.

Nowadays migrating to eudev is a bit different - first you have to unset the udev USE flag for sys-apps/systemd-utils, then you run

root #emerge --ask --oneshot sys-apps/systemd-utils sys-fs/eudev

It's important to have them both in one command, otherwise it won't work. --Iromeister (talk) 10:13, 15 July 2022 (UTC)
