Definition of reverse -n option. emerge --remove-from-world pidgin That would remove the entry pidgin from the world file. Then a user could use --depclean to remove pidgin and other dependencies that are no longer needed. There would be no need to use -C in that case. I am subscribed to -user as well. I been using Gentoo since the 1.4 days. This is about improving portage which is a good thing to talk about here. The devs do it, not the user. ;-) Also, I already know how to use portage pretty good. I'm not asking for support just trying to improve things. Dale :-) :-)
