Hi

I am installing a fresh amd64 system. As to the handbook I did
Code:
emerge sync
which worked fine. However, if I try to
Code:
emaint sync --auto
no matter how long one after the other try, I get a timeout. I read that one can get blocked if synching too often, which I think is well done. However, is this permanently?

I was unable to find here or on the net a hint how to improve on this state. Has anyone a notion?

Kind regards

Thiemo

from man emaint:
Quote:
-a, --auto
Sync repositories which have their auto-sync setting set yes, true.
Leading to the question auto-sync setting set ??

emaint sync -A works
emaint sync --auto works

ban is temporary

Code:
auto-sync=yes
otherwise it would not even try to connect to the repository servers, would it?

Point also is, that I last time synched well tried to synch several days in the past.
