Description phrexianreaper 2007-02-01 00:53:40 UTC
There wouldn't be any way to modify euse to no give the warning about not being in the portage group if, say, -i were to be used, but display said message if you use, say --prune.

Err, what kind of warning?

$ euse -i php

that warning. Half of it is bright red, too, but thats not the problem.

This doesn't come from euse at all, it's a portage warning. Upgrade to 2.1.2.

When it goes stable I will. Some things I don't want to mess with if they are a bit too system critical. Apprecate the responce.
