After performing a large number of package upgrades on my Gentoo machine, I discovered that Eclipse would crash when showing documentation, or otherwise embedded browser-base content ( including the web browser preferences) . Continue reading
Today I plugged in a USB flash drive (after updating 40 or so packages in Gentoo, including HAL) and received this error in a popup:

I had been having a strange problem with Samba, where creating shares through KDE created shares that are visible through SMB or Windows clients, yet opening them only showed an error that “The file or folder does not exist”.
Like many people, I have two boxes set up with Gentoo, and prefer to keep both my systems up to date. The problem of course with this is that each system must sync with the Gentoo servers to pull down the newest packages.
Wouldn’t it be more convenient to have one box pull down the new packages and for the others to sync against that?
Have been having this strange error appear for a while when attempting to compile sys-libs/db (and compiling other software with C has no problems). The package is fine as my other box compiles the package fine.
I’m using CCACHE and Gentoo 2006.0 AMD64.
