use. The -1 for example keeps the world file clean since you have to put effort into adding something to it. One could add it to the world file directly or use the --select y option. Either way, nothing gets added to the world file because you forgot to use the -1 option. The backtrack, so far 100 has worked. If I start to have issues that a higher number fixes, it will be upped to that number. Over time, some things have been removed since they were no longer needed. Your mileage may vary but could give you a good starting point.

ng a new thread, people are much more likely to see it. As a example, if I see a systemd thread, I pass it by since I don't use it and would find it highly unlikely that I could help them in any way. People who use systemd tho, they would see the thread and see if they can help. However, if you bury it inside of another thread that is unrelated, they may not see your question. Hope that helps.

I use eix-sync by the way. I went to the wiki to see if I could find how to set that up, I do check changelogs sometimes, but couldn't find anything. Maybe I used the wrong search terms???

thought you were right. Took a second look to go, OH. One is emerging, other is installing. I guess that is what you are talking about?? What I don't see, maybe it is outside what you posted, the installation of package 2 or 10. Well, did it?? Dale :-) :-)

tting same > error with Gnumeric. Just a thought. Does this happen with only one file or any file created the same way? If it's just one file, could it be that the file is somehow corrupted? Maybe export then import it and save it as a new name and test? Just a thought. Dale :-) :-)

a problem like this, someone here will likely remember this and be able to share what you discovered. So, while it wasn't what you expected it to be, that doesn't mean others won't learn a little something from it. For me, I find it odd that a broken USB stick would cause that. I would have expected it to not boot at all or something. Weird. Dale :-) :-)
