Actually, that's not 100% correct. If that was so, depclean would never remove system packages. But it does. On my setup, which is purely udev, depclean wants to remove devfsd. It warns me that it wants to remove the system package, but it would do it anyway. Sebastian Redl -- gentoo-amd64@g.o mailing list
