I royally screwed things up today doing a world update, and have been re-emerging packages in order to get my system back. I finally have a desktop again, but not quite all the way there yet- gnome-applets is failing on libgstaudio.so. Revdep-rebuild doesnt find any packages to emerge when I pass it this library... how can I find out what package it came from so I can re-emerge it?

Thanks as always.

Use equery. Can't remember proper commandline but I think it is 'equery f filename'.

You ask. Incidentally, that should be a reference to a file which is part of media-libs/gst-plugins-base.

Bear in mind that it only works if the package is installed. The appropriate short option is b (belongs) not f (files).

Thanks guys, that's done it. Using equery b <library> I was able to track down the remaining culprits and my system is working again.
