How do I upgrade to the latest Gentoo?
The Gentoo version being installed is a reasonably old and you will not be able to update immediately. Follow the following steps to upgrade:
- Install Portage and Python from tinderbox (http://tinderbox.dev.gentoo.org/)
- Update Python to use version 2.6
- Sync your portage tree
- Emerge 2.10.x version of glibc
- Update gcc
- Update glibc to latest version
- Emerge binutils
- Perform emerge -e world
This should bring you up to the current tree.
