Just a quick query guys.

Yesterday I did an

Code:
emerge --sync && emerge -uDNav world


and there were three package updates and about 120 or so re-emerges (mostly x11 stuff). I did the same thing today and I'm getting a similar thing happening, there are three packages that need updating and about 100 re-emerges.

Anyone got any idea what's going on here?



Cheers,

Ok, so your saying that the use flag scheme in portage has changed for some packages, hence the long list of re-emerge today and yesterday?

I get the following use flags in yellow

(-X%*)



Sorry for my ignorance, I always wondered what a yellow use flag meant.. :oops:

Moved from Portage & Programming to Duplicate Threads, please see this topic: Emerge --newuse (-N) gives loads of USE="X%*" or (-X%*).
