But if you emerge --update libreoffice before the package that is forcing the rebuild, why would libreoffice rebuild? I would expect it to only rebuild libreoffice after the dependency had been changed. I'm not saying out wouldn't work some of the time, but I can see situations where it wouldn't. Whereas emerge --opts @world --exclude memory-hogs... emerge --opts --jobs 1 @world should always isolate them. -- Neil Bothwick Hello, this is an extension to the famous signature virus, called spymail.
