Hello. I wound like to reinstall Xwindows because I didn’t have my use variables set correctly the first time around. Do I have to “uemerge” and “emerge” again? Is the an easy “recompile” flag? Thank you.

i think the first thing is to get out of xwindow/kde/or whatever..

then do a pretend emerge like:

emerge unmerge --pretend xfree

scan the package for anything that seems strange. then do the real thing with the command:

emerge unmerge xfree

Can somebody verify this?

Actually, if you're using a current version of portage, you should just be able to adjust your use settings, and then run 'emerge xfree' or whatever again. It will recompile it.
