7 days? Time to emerge --sync, and update world again!

hehehehe, only a true gentooite would get that one :-)

on reflection, it would probably have been easier for maxim to just
reinstall the box. But then again he learned a heap of stuff that's
hard to learn any other way

Or, in the tried and trusted Unix tradition of 37 years, when he breaks
it himself next time he gets to keep both pieces AND have the glue that
puts them back together :-)

Sometimes I find myself deliberately breaking stuff just to see if I can
fix it. Try this one, it's not as easy as it looks:

emerge busybox to / on a machine in use without making symlinks
Now emerge something. You get an impressive error message.

I break enough by mistake than to do that on purpose.
