Description Michael Sun 2006-06-12 01:56:46 UTC
I got the following error if I did not emerge procps first
configure: error: Cannot find pathname to ps
configure: error: /bin/sh './configure' failed for random128

sys-process/procps is in profiles/base/packages, i.e., installed on every Gentoo system. Not an ebuild bug if you unmerged it.

it may not work if someone does:

echo "*mail-mta/courier" >> /etc/portage/profile/packages
emerge -e system

Not exactly our problem. ;) Such messing w/ profiles is completely unsupported.
