Running emerge --depclean on multiple ~amd64 machines marks certain system-profile packages for removal. I don't remove these of course. What is the appropriate way to mark the packages for portage to not suggest removing them?
Code:
$ sudo emerge --depclean -p
...
!!! 'app-editors/nano' (virtual/editor) is part of your system profile.
!!! Unmerging it may be damaging to your system.
 app-editors/nano
    selected: 2.3.1
   protected: none
     omitted: none
!!! 'sys-apps/less' (virtual/pager) is part of your system profile.
!!! Unmerging it may be damaging to your system.
 sys-apps/less
    selected: 444
   protected: none
     omitted: none
 sys-fs/sysfsutils
    selected: 2.1.0
   protected: none
     omitted: none
All selected packages: app-editors/nano-2.3.1 sys-apps/less-444 sys-fs/sysfsutils-2.1.0

Thanks.

Moved from Portage & Programming to Duplicate Threads. You're a little bit late to the party. :wink:
Code:
emerge --noreplace less nano sysfsutils
See depclean wants to uninstall 'less' and --depclean wants to remove nano! for the history and explanation.
