somehow after all the portage hoopla (i've been running gentoo on this box since .9something). my world file has only 4 packages in it, only ones i've updated manually or recently installed. this sucks for now when i do an update world only those 4 packages are checked for updates. does anyone know how i can re-create this file based on the packages currently installed on the system?

thanks...

Well it would seem all could be re-created by a well written bash script, but someone else will have to have a crack at it since my scripting skills are not good .

BASH? I don't know enough about BASH ... but who needs BASH when you have PERL :)

EDIT: I've put this in the tips section. See http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic.php?t=2480

Improved it a bit ... it works much better now (i.e. it excludes builds that are part of the system set and performs some sanity checks). Found out that emerge --update world just won't work if certain things are in the world file - it acts as though there's nothing to update. I'm trying to work out which entries cause this or if it's for some other reason ... if anyone knows the answer, let me know.
