The ABI change simply means that the plugins need to be recompiled after
installing the new version of mythtv (as noted in mythtv ticket 3842).
However there are 0.20.2_p14282 versions in portage for all the plugins now,
though they're still hard masked:
equery list -p myth|grep 0.20.2
I went ahead yesterday and unmasked those versions of what I was using
(mythtv, mythtv-themes, mythvideo, and mythdvd) by adding them to my
package.unmask and my package.keywords files. The upgrade went fine.
Note that I'm not recommending unmasking hard masked packages!!...I usually
never do...but I made sure to back up the database and knew I could get
back in a worst case scenario, and it worked fine for me. I'll probably
re-install once they're unmasked just in case the ebuilds were in any state
of flux while they were hard masked.
Also note that, looking here:
...it appears that there's now a newer version of 0.20.2 (SVN 14307) in
portage...so it's possible that that may get unmasked rather than SVN 14282.
All in all, I was thrilled at how easy my upgrade was...including the switch
to SD. Great work on everyone's part!
