I have been absent from posting here for at least a year Plus.
A long time Sabayon user since 2005, I have followed Calculate with great interest and always download the latest ISO to burn and try.
Here are my question: Should I sync and layman before all Adds and Upgrades?
I am familar with using emerge and layman and have done so for years. In the past few years I have used the CLI to update and sync very seldom. Instead relying on GUI type package managers more often.
So, I took a refresher look at the Calculate Docs and then did
layman -s calculate
And then for good measure
All the above went as expected and fairly quickly.
To test all I did an
eix -S browser
Just to test and all went fine.
Lastly I did a
Which also installed fine.
I am accustom to syncing before any Upgrade or Package add with Debian or Arch. When I use Sabayon the Package manage does the sync for me before any Package ADD.
So, Should I sync and layman before all Adds and Upgrades?
I notice that when I clicked the SYNC button on Porthole it opened a small terminal to display the syncing process and then synced all 9973 packages. Will this happen each time…Or will some of this be Cached in some manner?
