Description Spider (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-06-29 17:57:19 UTC
emerge -e --fetchonly world 
emerge: root access required (or wheel group membership for "--pretend" and search.)

This is correct.  Wheel only allows you to do --pretend and search.
Comment 2 Spider (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-07-02 08:17:25 UTC
What I object to as being a bug is the errormessage that pops up, not the fact
that I can't do it.
