Earlier this month we reviewedRedcore Linux, a Gentoo-based, desktop distribution. The review mentioned problems with the distribution's Sisyphus graphical package manager, which the Redcore developers looked into: "I'm sure many of you already noticed, but unfortunately the latest release of Redcore Linux shipped with a partially broken package manager. While Portage (emerge) worked awesome as always, Sisyphus had some serious issues. Under certain circumstances, Sisyphus was unable to perform system upgrades, it may compile packages from source instead of using binary repository, and it may even downgrade packages instead of upgrading them. Many reviewers of the distribution caught these flaws, which made me wonder what is going wrong, and take another close look at the code..." The Redcore blog post includes instructions for upgrading Sisyphus to the fixed version and refreshing its package information.
