If you merge the latest Portage first and then upgrade your packages (like baselayout), you should be fine. You'll need to find all the ._cfg????* files in /etc and upgrade your in-place files. For people who don't know what I'm talking about, type "emerge --help config". Best Regards, -- Daniel Robbins <drobbins@g.o> Chief Architect/President Gentoo Technologies, Inc.
