    I was using "emerge --emptytree system" because that is waht the handbook at gentoo.org says to use.

    Are you sure it was --emptytree and not emerge -e system?

    And if it was emptytree, could you c&p it? I couldn't find where it said anything about emptytree.

    Building the System

    To start building the system, execute emerge --emptytree system. Then go do something to keep your mind busy, because this step takes a long time to complete.

    Code Listing 20: Building the System

    # emerge --emptytree system

    from http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handboo...?part=1&chap=6

    I stand corrected.

    So, what happens if you do "emerge system"?
    Or "emerge -emptytree system"?

    It installs everything in the "system"-profile, which I beleve contains some core parts of the system. Another profile, called "world", contains every installed package, so "emerge -u world" would try updating every installed package on the system.
