upgrade to 0.12.1 fails on cdrtools

Not sure why I would ever need cdrtools on this box, but 'upgrade-edgelinux' runs through most ok, but this is in the final output:


* Messages for package app-cdr/cdrtools-3.02_alpha09:

Not sure why this is loading an alpha version. Anyone have a clue how to upgrade but not include this packages (I assume that the older cdrtools will be fine).

I've tried manually removing the package and reinstalling it, but it appears that the package is broken.


So I was able to fix this. Appears that the "setcap" program was broken

"emerge -c sys-lib/libcap" followed by "emerge -l sys-lib/libcap" fixed the immediate error.

I was able to finish the 0.12.1 upgrade. But I still have issues with getting the console to work in the UI.


Hello cfm,

Thank you for your interest in edgelinux. I have submitted the ticket regarding the console. Our development team will be with you as soon as possible. Thanks again for supporting Antsle.
