GET THE FUCK OFF MY HARD DRIVE!!

Where the hell is 7?
Merciful Father, I have squandered my days with plans of many things. This was not among them. But at this moment, I beg only to live the next few minutes well. For all we ought to have thought, and have not thought; all we ought to have said, and have not said; all we ought to have done, and have not done; I pray thee God for forgiveness.

LOL

Apologies for my assistance in fucking it up, though.

Yeah . . . next time you suggest emerge world . . . I'll have to perform the following:

cplan-login: root
password: *******

cplan: emerge -av pain

[ N   ]caenus-fist-to-face.tz
[ N   ]caenus-knife-to-gut.tz
[ N   ]caenus-kick-the-shit-out-of-you.tz

Do you want to emerge these packages? [Yes/No]y

emerging . . .

Hey, in my defense, I've been using Gentoo for over 2 years, and have never had a problem with emerge world. Takes an amount of configuration, but I've always gotten it to work (sometimes eventually, but still).

At any rate, though, apologies for screwing up your system. At least it's working now.

Contingencyplan, no worries. He shoulda done emerge -U (update only). Even then, they tell you not to emerge world. Ah, well.

Seriously dude, no biggie.  I was just having fun trying to get some traffic restarted on the forums.

Where do they tell you this? And by "they", I assume you mean the Gentoo people?

Spend any time on the gentoo forums. Do a search for 'emerge world'. All will be explained. Or not.

* morgul should really try it, before claiming it will explain all.
