All is fine until I do a ..'emerge --sync'

and I get this....

Quote:
Performing Global Updates: /usr/portage/profiles/updates/2Q-2006
(Could take a couple of minutes if you have a lot of binary packages.)
.='update pass' *='binary update' @='/var/db move'
s='/var/db SLOT move' S='binary SLOT move' p='update /etc/portage/package.*'
........................................
pTraceback (most recent call last):

f.close()
File "/usr/lib/portage/pym/portage_util.py", line 696, in close
os.rename(self.name, self._real_name)
OSError: [Errno 16] Device or resource busy


Is it terminal or can it be fixed! help as I have no idea what to do here.....everything with 'emerge' says the above.
