emerge -e world finished after almost exactly 24 hours. Not bad for 600 packages I guess. It failed on samba, some gst-plugins, qt, vnc, and probably a few other things. That was annoying. I actually managed to finish without using (much) of
--skipfirst though. It's nice that when emerge -e world fails on the 300th package, you can emerge or emerge -C another app, and then emerge --resume and it will still be smart enough to resume with the 300th package from before. Doesn't work as well as it could, though.
In other news, compiz no longer works. I get a blank white screen. I don't know what happened. I haven't been updating compiz or XGL, but I must've updated one of its dependencies. Possibly the nvidia drivers. Who knows. It's not worth tracking down to fix, really. The surprising thing isn't that compiz doesn't work now, it's that compiz somehow managed to work on my computer for as long as it did.
