Hi,
I think I'm in need of doing 
emerge --emptytree ...
for the first time.
Can I do it on a running Gentoo system?
I expected it will take several days to complete.
This poses some problems to me.
First, I have to shut down my machine overnight.
Second, I haven't made good experience with --keep-going
nor with --resume.
What can I do if 'emerge -e ...' fails by itself or because I have to
shut my machine down?

Many thanks for some hints,
Helmut
