    world file is corrupted!


    Hi,

    I just recently discovered that my world file has been corrupted for some time now. most of the file is just a block of zeros.... Don't ask me why...
    Is there any way to rebuild the world file?

    Thanks

    You can issue the command below to rebuild the file. However, you will then want to go through the entries by hand and be sure to remove any packages that are strict dependencies of other ebuilds. Don't just rebuild the world file and then move along without performing that step.

    # regenworld
