Looks like that got it guys.&nbsp; Thanks tons for the help.... It
seems I broke portage by running only part ~amd64 packages.&nbsp;
revdep-rebuild found it but it took twice to fix..... depclean wants to
get rid of tons of stuff though so I'm thinking this is a bad idea or I
have bigger problems.... Kudos to AMD64 Gentoo for the best support
team in open source.<br>

&gt;, excerpted<br>below,&nbsp;&nbsp;on Tue, 01 Nov 2005 09:39:29 -0800:<br><br>&gt; Been ~amd64 since the day I got this laptop.<br>&gt;<br>&gt; The last time I hit the problem was on
<br>&gt;<br>&gt; lrwxrwxrwx&nbsp;&nbsp;1 root root 15 Oct 21 14:43 /usr/lib/ -&gt;<br>&gt;<br>&gt;<br>&gt; when I finally got tired and created the link.<br>&gt;<br>&gt; Thus on Oct 21st at 13:43 (PST) you could still experience the
<br>&gt; problem as a ~amd64 type.<br>&gt;<br>&gt; I got slapped in the face as a small child for filing a duplicate<br>&gt; bug.&nbsp;&nbsp;Thus I am, as an adult, unable to file bugs. :(<br><br>Did you do what I and others have suggested, a revdep-rebuild?&nbsp;&nbsp;Note that
<br>existing packages on your system may still be linked against the old<br>library.&nbsp;&nbsp;Once it's in their binaries...<br><br>revdep-rebuild (as with anything portage related, run it with the -p the<br>first time thru to see what it's going to do) is designed to scan your
<br>existing binaries to see what they need, and your existing library path<br>(that ld uses to find the libs it needs) to see what's provided.&nbsp;&nbsp;Then it<br>makes a list of all the binaries (both executables, and libs that load
<br>other libs) that have unfilled dependencies using the existing libraries,<br>traces down the packages they belong to, and remerges them (or with -p,<br>displays what it would merge), the intent being to recompile and relink
<br>anything that's missing dependencies, either linking against new or<br>alternate versions of same, or pulling in the required dependencies to<br>merge as well.<br><br>Of course, this only works once that library has gone missing.&nbsp;&nbsp;If you run
<br>revdep-rebuild with the library (or a symlink pointing to an alternate)<br>still there, it'll think everything is fine and not list the package<br>owning the library in question for remerge.<br><br>Decently updated packages that formerly linked against libungif should now
<br>link against libgif without difficulty.&nbsp;&nbsp;However, with existing package on<br>the system linked against libungif, it's only to be expected that said<br>binaries would have issues.&nbsp;&nbsp;The easiest way to fix them is to run
<br>revdep-rebuild.&nbsp;&nbsp;In fact, revdep-rebuild, along with emerge --newuse<br>--update --deep world, should be a regular part of the routine to keep a<br>well maintained and upto date system.<br><br>(Another part of the same routine should be emerge depclean, but be sure
<br>the revdep-rebuild and emerge --newuse are completed first, and check the<br>output of a --pretend depclean for stuff you know you want to keep around,<br>before letting it do its thing.&nbsp;&nbsp;Then run revdep-rebuild again afterward,
<br>just to be sure.)<br><br>These apply to some degree to everyone, but a bit less to slower moving<br>stable, than to faster moving ~arch.&nbsp;&nbsp;Since ~arch may merge three versions<br>for every version that goes stable, including beta and rc versions on
<br>occasion, cruft tends to buildup rather faster than it will on a stable<br>system.<br><br>--<br>Duncan - List replies preferred.&nbsp;&nbsp; No HTML msgs.<br>&quot;Every nonfree program has a lord, a master --<br>and if you use the program, he is your master.&quot;&nbsp;&nbsp;Richard Stallman in
