Hi,


I discovered that I have a /bin/bin directory (not a symlink). It contains most of the same files as /bin and was created (last modified) on March 21, 2012. It contains no files newer than March 31, 2012. I guess it was created because of some ebuild bug. Is it safe to remove this directory?

Related, and the reason I discovered /bin/bin, is the problem I encountered with revdep-rebuild:

Code:
# revdep-rebuild -- -qa
 * Configuring search environment for revdep-rebuild

 * Checking reverse dependencies
 * Packages containing binaries and libraries broken by a package update
 * will be emerged.

 * Collecting system binaries and libraries
 * Generated new 1_files.rr
 * Collecting complete LD_LIBRARY_PATH
 * Generated new 2_ldpath.rr
 * Checking dynamic linking consistency
 *   broken /bin/bin/kill (requires libproc-3.2.8.so)
 *   broken /bin/bin/ps (requires libproc-3.2.8.so)
[ 100% ]                 
 * Generated new 3_broken.rr
 * Assigning files to packages
 *  !!! /bin/bin/kill not owned by any package is broken !!!
 *   /bin/bin/kill -> (none)
 *  !!! /bin/bin/ps not owned by any package is broken !!!
 *   /bin/bin/ps -> (none)
 * Generated new 4_raw.rr and 4_owners.rr
 * Found some broken files, but none of them were associated with known packages
 * Unable to proceed with automatic repairs.
 * The broken files are listed in 4_owners.rr


I guess this is caused by the existence of /bin/bin and should resolve itself after I remove that directory, or is there more to it?


TIA,

Erik

As a Test log in to your DE, start a term, su, start your File Manager, navigate to /bin select the 2nd bin and dump it in the trash. Reboot, run revdep-rebuild -- -qa. If all is well, login to DE start a term, su, start your File Manager, and empty root's trash...
