Hi,

I have tried to switch to this profile, now that 2005.0 has been released, however there has been a problem and I have had to revert.

Code:
rm /etc/make.profile
ln -s /usr/portage/profiles/default-linux/amd64/2005.0/ /etc/make.profile
emerge metadata
emerge --newuse -uDv world

Calculating world dependencies ...done!
>>> emerge (1 of 3) sys-devel/gcc-3.4.3-r1 to /
 * It appears you have switched to the 2005.0 profile without following
 * the upgrade guide.  Please see the following URL for more information:
 * http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/base/amd64/2005.0-upgrade-amd64.xml


*but* that web page states that the upgrade guide is deprecated.

Quote:
2005.0 hasn't been released yet, so there are still some changes you will need to make in /etc/portage to get this process to work:


Which is obviously wrong. I refuse to follow this upgrade guide, because it is out of date. Does anyone know the correct way to upgrade to 2005.0?

The Gentoo Upgrading Guide has links to the up-to-date documentation for amd64.

@hjnenc: thanks for the tip! Reading it now

@devs: I followed the correct method for switching profiles, at least it used to be the correct method. Then I was referred to a deprecated document! I would imagine that cleaning up your upgrade process should have been considered before releasing 2005.0. I think that the method for performing the upgrade is not intuitive, like the previous method was. Also, the document to explain how to do it seems to be buried deep in your documentation. Very difficult to find.

{edit} it looks like the complication is multilib on amd64. The upgrade process for all other architechtures is straighforward as is always was. I'm not brave enough to go pure 64 bit, so I guess I'll follow the guide and hope my system doesn't break

Moved from Portage & Programming to Duplicate Threads in favour of 'Switched to 2005.0 profile without following upgrade guide'.
