Description Anthony Gorecki 2005-03-07 23:18:00 UTC
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.
Comment 3 Anthony Gorecki 2005-08-09 17:35:00 UTC
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.

Closing due to old age
