    And there are other file system types too.
    jfs, xfs and others.
    But I don't know what the advantages and disadvantages are for each. Reiserfs has always been good for me.
    i'll use reiserfs as i've used it for a while too and have had no problems.

    thanks for helping me

    heh that error is usualy from bad dev's (developers) nothing to realy do for itbut wait till it is fixed, but if you think you want to trust the pkg you could re-digest it....but i dont recomend that.....

    hmm...it's too late now (already have a fresh gentoo install with my partitions set up how i want), but how would i "re-digest" a package in the future...just in case there's something i need installed and am willing to try this?

    to fix the digest do:

    Code:
    ebuild /usr/portage/app-misc/appname/app.ebuild digest
