Hi all,

I've not been able to emerge portage to update it in a long time. I've been reading and seeing that I'd like to do something to disable collision protection.

However, when I try this I get:

root# FEATURES="-collision-protect" emerge portage
su: FEATURES=-collision-protect: Command not found.


Any suggestions?

TIA,

cayenne

What shell are you using? tcsh for example doesn't understand the <assignment> <command> syntax. Just add the -collision-protect to FEATURES in make.conf instead.

That was it. I just hit bash, and then ran it....started up just fine.

By the way, how do you set the shell (Xterm in Xwindows) to use say like bash as its shell....is there a config file on OSX that sets this?

Thanx,

cayenne
