First of all, sorry about top posting that's the way Gmail does it and you cant change the settings.

Also if you are looking for a lazy man's way of getting a package description try `emerge -s packagename` and it prints out a lot of information as well as a short description of the package. I have never seen a long description such as those used to build Debian packages anywhere in portage and don't really think it would be useful anyhow. So try emerge -s and if you need more info go to the packae's website. That would be my advice. Oh, and emerge -s works off the metadata so you dint need an Internet connection.

Please stay on topic , that's for all of you !
