If the user is a member of portage he can do any emerge operation as long as the command includes "--pretend" or "-p" [d531][waltdnes][~] emerge -pv ufraw These are the packages that would be merged, in order: Calculating dependencies... done! [ebuild R ] media-gfx/ufraw-0.20-r1 USE="-contrast -fits -gimp -gnome -gtk -openmp -timezone" 0 KiB Total: 1 package (1 reinstall), Size of downloads: 0 KiB However, the regular user is not allowed to actually emerge or unmerge anything. E.g... [d531][waltdnes][~] emerge -v ufraw emerge: superuser access is required The idea is to allow the user to find out what he would have to do if he wanted to emerge/unmerge something. -- Walter Dnes <waltdnes@××××××××.org> I don't run "desktop environments"; I run useful applications
