When sending a SIGTERM signal to emerge while it's exporting a package snapshot, emerge can take a long time to terminate depending on the size of the application. If it's in the middle of exporting an enormous tree, this can be a /very/ long time (which I discovered this evening), as it needs to wait for the export process to finish. Is there a way to work around this problem?
Is this still a problem? Does "exporting a package snapshot" mean "emerge
--buildpkg" or what?
I'm kind of confused myself here...
better description is needed.
It means that if emerge is downloading an enormous CVS export so that the
package can compile it, there's no way to stop the processes mid-way without
forcibly killing emerge. Ctrl-C does not work.
