Re: Re-installed Win 7, Grub won't start

Re: Preserving a pkg's USE flags when using both pkg manager

seems like a lot of work. i suppose masking it in entropy. install with portage, and make a copy of your use flags for it and its relevant dependencies. dont upgrade it with portage, because portage willl want to upgrade everything. wait until there are important updates that affect your use of it. ...
