14 Yes I did have permission problems. None of the docs discuss
15 permissions, as I remember.

24 eix-update is very fast now and clean! (all 100%)

29 I rebuilt layman, again and when through all the configs, check
30 permissions and such and now eix works as it did. That is showing the
31 gentoo tree string_matches as well as overlays and my
32 /usr/local/portage. The second (2) are designated via footnotes and the
33 repository locattions on my system. I not sure how eix does that, but,
34 it is very, very cool and helps an old guy keeps his codes a bit more
35 organized and quick to access.....
38 Thanks for all the input (volker, neil, etc). Oh, I'm posting via my
39 backup (nntp) as gmane has been running very slow. Gmane is about to
40 crash and it usually takes Lars a few day to rebuild it so apologies in
41 adavance if this post does not follow the thread_line properly.
44 thx!
