is there a way to force emerge to download and recompile a package that it has allready? I have unmerged the old one but it doesn't seem to let me recompile when I emerge it again. I am doing this for Quake 3 arena because for some reason the punkbuster button will not let me turn it on...any other fixes to this problem would be great too

Hi,

if you really want to download the package source again ( i cant imagine why you want to do this ) then you just have to delete the concerning files from the /usr/portage/distfiles/ directory.

After deleting the command
Code:
emerge <package-name>
should download and reinstall the package.

Same problem with rtcw - I had to remove some graphic tweaks from my config.
