Description S. Myles Prather 2002-07-01 02:20:07 UTC
I'm getting the errors for some-to-most ports. The worst part is that portage is
one of the packages that bombs when I try to emerge it (how do I get the fix?).
I am using portage 2.0.8 (I think; I'm in Winblows right now since I lost my
nvidia X-11 driver since I recompiled my kernel and emerge nvidia-kernel bombs
with the error below).

earth root # emerge portage
