I was under the impression that
Code:
# emerge --sync
would update the portage tree. A the end, however, I received the following message:
Code:
Performing Global Updates: /usr/portage/profiles/updates/1Q-2005
(Could take a couple of minutes if you have a lot of binary packages.)
  .='update pass'  *='binary update'  @='/var/db move'
  s='/var/db SLOT move' S='binary SLOT move' p='update /etc/portage/package.*'
...................................................@...........@.@......@...@...............


 * An update to portage is available. It is _highly_ recommended
 * that you update portage now, before any other packages are updated.
 * Please do so and then update ALL of your configuration files.


So... how do I "update portage now" , if I thought I just did it?

Thanks....

Chandra

Please search before posting, or at least use your eyes. It was even on the same page in the forum, for crying out loud!
