#emerge -p guile
These are the packages that I would merge, in order:
Calculating dependencies ...done!

export GUILE_LOAD_PATH=/usr/share/guile/1.6

cheers, damn texmax is a fine piece of work
Comment 2 Aaron Son 2003-07-15 13:09:18 UTC
Why isn't the guile ebuild putting a file in /etc/env.d/ which sets GUILD_LOAD_PATH to the appropriate value?
Comment 3 Bryan Østergaard (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2003-09-06 10:25:21 UTC
This problem should be fixed in dev-util/guile ebuild
Comment 4 Daniel Robbins (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2003-09-06 14:29:00 UTC
Fixed in guile-1.6.4-r1. Thanks :)
