    Portage update


    Just did an emerge sync on me Gentoo box and at the end got a message saying I should update portage, new version etc.

    Should I just emerge portage?

    yeah.. just do this:
    Code:
    emerge -Uu portage && emerge -UuDav world
    that will update portage and then update your system, including the deps.. the -D is the short option for --deep which makes portage traverse the dependency tree and update that as well as the packages in your world file.. you have to include the -D if you want your deps upgraded because anything that you don't explicitly emerge on the command line doesn't get added to the world file.
    Their code will be beautiful, even if their desks are buried in 3 feet of crap. - esr
