Subject: [gentoo-user] Why are some packages in portage's output bold?
Date: Wed, 11 Jul 2007 15:39:21
1 Some time ago, I noticed that whenever I ran my semi-weekly 'emerge
2 -uavD world', some packages were given in bold. For a while I thought
3 perhaps they were more system-critical packages, but upon further
4 investigation I could find no sort of pattern to which packages were
5 being bolded and which weren't. Then I thought maybe it was a local
6 bug, but soon thereafter some of my friends noticed the same thing in
7 their portage outputs.
9 Does anyone know why this behavior occurs? To me it doesn't appear to
10 be providing any sort of useful information and only serves to confuse
11 me.
13 Thanks,
15 Ryan
