Default Re: gentoo users: don't emerge system...

i think i goofed up somehow... if i were guessing i had to enabled ~x86 arch flags for a certain package and it got the glibc also, then when it was turned off and i did emerge system, portage saw that my glibc wasn't stable, so it took the liberty to downgrade to an older version in order to protect my system from the mean instable packages.

well, anyway, that's speculation #2. who really knows what happened or how/why. the only thing i know for a fact is if you go backwards a version in glibc your system will be ****ed; so i suggest not doing so :P
