Hmm, when I try "emerge -p world" portage doesn't come up with anything to update. However, if I do "emerge -p kde", it correctly detects that kde needs upgrading.

I've checked that kde is in /var/cache/edb/world

Any ideas?

I believe you mean:

Code:
emerge -up world


or

Code:
emerge --update --pretend world

Thanks, that worked.

Still strange that you don't need the -u flag for individual packages.

"World" isn't a package -- it's essentially a meta-package. Also, when you 'emerge kde' to upgrade to kde 3.0.1, it's really only installing kde 3.0.1 -- you still have to uninstall kde 3.0. So it's really not an upgrade, per se.

Granted, it's still a bit confusing. Hopefully, they'll resolve it as part of portage 2.0
