Description ehrich.weiss 2014-11-28 16:47:08 UTC
Using porthole 0.6.1-r1 as root I get the error listed. At first I thought it was simply a typo in the file but when I corrected it there were other errors so I reverted. The only reason I use it as root is because for some reason I can no longer use "ask" in the Advanced Emerge options if run as non-root. 

This happens most often when I'm trying to unmask

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run porthole as root(I did it via command line to see the error)
2. Attempt to unmask a package
Actual Results:  
At some point in this process it will give "NameError: global name 'priviliges' is not defined"

Expected Results:  
It should have unmasked(or whatever I asked it to do)
