hi,

I got this message after emerging something:

Code:
 * Directory symlink(s) may need protection:
 *         
 *      /var/run
 *         
 * Searching all installed packages for files installed via above symlink(s)...
 *         
 * One or more symlinks to directories have been preserved in order to
 * ensure that files installed via these symlinks remain accessible. This
 * indicates that the mentioned symlink(s) may be obsolete remnants of an
 * old install, and it may be appropriate to replace a given symlink with
 * the directory that it points to.
 *         
 *      /var/run


But I can't find the obsolete symlink.

thanks.

See cannot remove /run/openrc: Read-only file system

In Short:
Code:
mkdir /tmp/tmpdir
sudo mount --bind / /tmp/tmpdir
sudo rm /tmp/tmpdir/run/openrc
sudo umount /tmp/tmpdir
rmdir /tmp/tmpdir


After this, the error you have disappeared on my system
