Also if you are looking for a lazy man's way of getting a package
description try `emerge > -s packagename` and it prints out a lot of
information as well as a short description of the > package. I have
never seen a long description such as those used to build Debian<br>> packages anywhere in portage and don't really think it would be useful anyhow. So try<br>> emerge -s and if you need more info go to the packae's website. That would be my

<br><br>Even worse, you're wrong. emerge -s doesn't look in metadata.xml, it<br>gets the information from the ebuild.<br><br>Dave<br><br>--<br><a href="mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org">email@example.com</a> mailing list
