That doesn't doesn't seem to be a recognized version. From the `emerge binutils` that failed, it gives this version: Emerging (1 of 1) sys-devel/binutils-2.21.51.0.6 I see the following related to binutils in $EPREFIX/usr/portage/sys-devel/binutils $ ls usr/portage/sys-devel/binutils binutils-2.18-r04.1.ebuild binutils-2.21.51.0.6.ebuild Manifest binutils-2.19.1-r01.1.ebuild ChangeLog metadata.xml binutils-2.20.1-r1.ebuild files (question: what determines which versions I have at my disposal?) I tried the older one binutils-2.20.1-r1 using the ~ syntax you showed me :-) $ emerge --oneshot --nodeps ~binutils-2.20.1-r1 And that one worked. thanks! Onward... Ricky
