If this has been repeated elsewhere than sorry for the re-post. The resolver still needs a bit of work before it's ready. Handling of the || () in ROOT!=/ via the -K option is not in that good of shape in 2.1_NXX and can't really be used. Till that's addressed 2.1(re-ping jason) in my eyes absolutely should not even be considered for any rc status. Other than that I'm quite pleased with many aspects of 2.1 -- Ned Ludd <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> Gentoo Linux -- email@example.com mailing list
