Changelog   Emerde 1.2.7 Beta release
Q: What's Emerde?
A: emerde.freaknet.org

Q: Why did you chose this name?
A: emerGe, G = Gentoo
   emerDe, D = Distros

Q: What are those strange messages at boot like:
   Running the Emerde's scripts (man initd-cfg)
   * Caching service dependencies...
   gawk: /lib/rcscripts/awk/cachedepends.awk:73: fatal: extension: cannot open
   `/lib/rcscripts/filefuncs.so' (/lib/rcscripts/filefuncs.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory)
A: You don't have gawk installed. Just do:
   # emerde gawk
   Please be sure to have installed the adviced packages at the installation,
   and read man init-cfg.
 
Q: Why do I get: "config_profile_path not specified to class config" ?
A: Use this line to fix it:
# /usr/bin/rsync  --recursive --links --safe-links --perms		  \
  --times --compress --force --whole-file --delete --delete-after --stats \
  --timeout=180  --exclude='distfiles/*' --exclude='local/*'		  \
  --exclude='packages/*'  --progress "rsync://rsync.gentoo.org/gentoo-portage/*" /usr/portage

  Then check this:
  $ ls -l /etc/make.profile
  lrwxrwxrwx    1 root  root /etc/make.profile -> /usr/portage/profiles/default-linux/x86/2005.0

  When you get that error, is 'cause Emerde cannot find that link or the
  directory pointed by the link. (Note: the x86/2005.0/ dir can change in future
  versions)

Q: How can I temporarily or permanently change USE flags?
A: # vim /etc/make.conf

Q: Every time I use pkg2por I get: "pkg2por: Category not found. Skipping"
A: You have to update the CADB:
   # pkg2por CADB

   By the way that is done automatically each time you sync the portage with:
   # emerde sync

Q: Damn! I want to sync only a category, not the whole portage!
A: # man sync-cat	;)
