To use kuroolito you must activate the sqlite module for portage:
- Kuroolito requires the portage sqlite module to work. See http://gentoo-wiki.com/TIP_speed_up_portage_with_sqlite
- Uncomment the line 'portdbapi.auxdbmodule = cache.sqlite.database' in /etc/portage/modules .
- Remember to run 'emerge --regen' to update Portage cache with all overlays after each sync.
In Tools menu you find "Refresh Packages" and "Refresh Updates".
"Refresh Packages" scans the Portage and found Overlays as well as installed-packages cache. Then "Updates" are calculated by running "emerge -upv world".
In Settings is found options for changing location of the caches as well the syntax for update-command.
Kuroolito only reads file on the system and saves one database locally. No superuser privileges are required.
You can install kuroolito from sunrise overlay. Use layman to do it.
