gentoo + emerge


hey guys i have a quick question.

I was emerging openoffice and wow that thing takes 3 days to compile.. i woke up the 2nd day and it was still going.. so what i did was a ctrl+c to kill it..


iam just wondering if its safe to kill a emerge?

and is there a command which can check if ur system has any missing dependencies ?

Thanks

I would not get in a habit of it.

Standalone app like OO is probably ok...

However, if it is a system target you may break stuff doing that. Also, you will have a bunch of crap left in /tmp/portage/ you will have to remove manually now.

PS: there are binary packages for OO available...

By the way, when you use [ctrl-c] to abort an emerge, you can resume it later (if you haven't emerged anything else in the mean time) with the command "emerge --resume". This way you can shutdown your computer and only the work on the last package will be lost instead of everything.
Otherwise (if it's one very large package) you can use things like [ctrl-z] to pauze it and the "fg" command to resume. Or adjust the niceness of portage for a more usable system while emerge is running.

Hope that helps.
