And you never doubted like: geez maybe i did something wrong?
No actually - unless 'equo --verbose world' comes under your definition of 'wrong'.
Further more, reporting stuff without enough info/logs doesn't help at all. A "Gentoo user" should know that.
HA! The forum would cripple under the weight of a post that large I didn't come for support - I've fixed it myself by abandoning entropy and rebuilding everything via portage. I was offering a simple warning that curious users should resist the temptation to switch to the 4.0 branch until it's ready.
If you're looking for something to fix from all this, then I seriously recommend you have a closer look at the entropy stability and entropy <==> portage syncing, because I had literally hundres of packages installed on my system ( with broken dependancies that revdep-rebuild was finding ) that neither entropy nor portage claimed to know anything about ( hence my need to query a more stable system for packages that owned files ).
