A simple console tool for the every day commands to keep a gentoo linux computer up to date. Commands can be started by single key strokes. Genservice allows you also to do backups of user selected files (config files in /etc). It is just a python script and a man page. Download the latest version genservice-*.*.tar.gz

  • Type emerge --unmerge genservice to remove it
