ebuild – auto generate digests

If you are getting the problem : no digest for the ebuilds that you are using

gentoo-vm portage # emerge portage
Calculating dependencies ...done!
>>> emerge (1 of 15) app-misc/pax-utils-0.1.17 to /
!!! No package digest file found: /usr/portage/app-misc/pax-utils/files/digest-p
!!! Type "ebuild foo.ebuild digest" to generate it.
gentoo-vm portage #

give ‘ebuild pax-utils-0.1.17.ebuild digest

This will create digest for the package.

But if we need to create digest for all ebuilds that we use.. generating digests for all of them is a ridiculous job.

enable the feature ‘digest’ -> Auto generate digest for packages. This will solve the problem.

add the following in /etc/make.conf
