Description thisismythirdemail 2018-08-18 08:31:26 UTC
According to the gentoo wiki: "All eselect modules are required to support the ROOT variable. For prefix support, variables EPREFIX and EROOT are also defined and have the same meaning as in ebuilds." (

A person on the gentoo forums had a run in with this issue when trying to install the app ccache as a normal user in an eprefix. (The package ebuild calls for an update of the module.) You can see the thread here:
