MeowCatsmarienz, I'm totally confused right now, heh.. first of all, unmerging gnome-light does nothing, I don't have it installed, second, why emerge gnome? I already have it emerged, then that command, it will simply spit out EVERYTHING that gnome depends on? well I doubt I have enough paper/pencil led to write it all down to then emerge it
cgountaniswhats that gentool that allows you to find where emerge put files
marienzMeowCats: that command I gave you only contains the *direct* deps.
MeowCats: bleh, nvm, you're probably too confused by now, yeah. Do what JackieRipper said for the "kinder, gentler gnome".
MeowCats: then just merge the missing bits back by hand. emerge -vpt gnome might be useful at that point.
[R]cgountanis: qfile
cgountanis: i mean qlis
t
JackieRipperpackagecore looks interesting
cgountanisno thats not it
ryanakcahmm.. can I not have more than 4 partitions in fdisk?
marienzJackieRipper: ty :)
cgountanisfrom the gentoolkit
marienzryanakca: you need an extended partition for that. partition table limitation, not an fdisk one.
[R]ryanakca: you need to create an extended partiton and then put logical partitions in it
peksterryanakca: Only 4 primary partitions, but you can create an extended partition in one of the 4 primary, and put as many as you want in an extended partition
Not bad for 3 seconds of information :P
JackieRipperI'm trying to think of how you would implement a "why this is being uninstalled" in --depclean
ryanakcaWow, thanks for all the help guys :)
[R]JackieRipper: "because nohting depends on it" is the only reason somethign would show up in depclean
actionryanakca tries to figure how to do that now
ryanakcatries to figure how to do that now
MeowCatsmarienz, ok I'll just do that, sorry I can't help.. but being new to linux and not being familiar with most dependencies and have to know core names doesn't assist either of us
JackieRipperyeah
Cavpackagecore is like a replacement for equery?
[R]what is packagecore?
reisioCav: pkgcore? no
marienzMeowCats: yeah, I understand. Poke me if you can't figure out what to emerge to get something back.
reisioCav: it's like a replacement(ish) for Portage
marienzMeowCats: and thanks for pointing out how the tools suck here, I hadn't actually thought about this particular scenario before.
Cavoh, interesting
[R]whats with all these people trying to replace portage
portage is awesome and it rocks my socks off
reisio[R]: compared to what?
sourcemage's?
marienzMeowCats: your problem is you're enough of a controlfreak to not simply want all of gnome but not enough of a controlfreak not to install it all to begin with :P
reisiothat's not saying much
[R]reisio: lol
reisiothe answer is simple, though
[R]i think i tried using sourcemage once
reisioyou want something done right, do it yourself
