Hi-
I recently had some filesystem corruption and lost a bunch of files, but I'm not sure which ones they were. I am planning on writing a Bash script that will print out the names of packages that have entries in 'equery f packagename' which don't correspond to files in the filesystem. However, I first need to get a list of all currently installed packages on the system. /var/lib/portage/world seems to be an incomplete list; how can I list every installed package on the system?
