1 I just found a rather dangerous feature in portage. After doing an
2 emerge -u world it automaticly did an emerge clean (Which I heard was
3 Gentoo policy now)
5 This is plain stupid and dangerous since I'm now missing several shared
6 objects (.so files). In order to correct it I have two choices
8 1. emerge -e world
9 or
10 2. emerge -e <broken packages>
12 which will take alot of time.
14 Why has this become a features ? did anyone not consider the
15 consequences it could have ?
