I went to troubleshoot a USB issue I am having and I find that the lsusb command is no longer present.

What am I doing wrong?

Not emerging it, I suspect:
Code:
~ # equery belongs `which lsusb`
 * Searching for /usr/bin/lsusb ...
sys-apps/usbutils-008-r1 (/usr/bin/lsusb)

Is it possible that a prior "emerge --depclean" wiped it out? I've seen depclean want to remove stuff that I want/need, and I'm not quite sure why it's wanting to remove it. For example, it always seems to want to remove nano on new builds after I've installed vim. /shrug

dataking,

vim satisfies virtual/editor as does nano.

Nano is provided in the stage 3 but not in either the @system or @world set.
That makes nano an orphan if you install something else that satisfies virtual/editor, as the something else will be in @world.

Thanks makes sense, except I vaguely remember portage complaining about removing a package in @system when depclean goes to actually remove nano.

The point being, I've see depclean do some wonky stuff sometimes (maybe nano wasn't the best example, lol).

dataking,

nano was in the system set at one time, its not now.

I've had --depclean rip out glibc many years ago. I wasn't best pleased :)
