Hi,
I was doing an emerge --update --deep --newuse world about four hours
or so in to it the machine shut down. Has this corrupted my system?
The log information is going to the summary.log file but more than
post messages are being shown. Is there a way i can get just he
summary messages with routine info.
Thanks.
Dave.
