What makes you think I didn't use -p? I have a cron job that runs emerge -pXXX @world after syncing and mails me the output, and I always use -a when running emerge in a shell. The point is that, whether I used -p, -a or neither, portage handled it all for me. -- Neil Bothwick Half of being smart is knowing what you're dumb at.
