I recently install Gentoo using coLinux. I did emerge --update world for the first time yesterday. After more than 12 hours, it is still running. How long does it usually take? Would it cause any problem if I stop it? How can I stop it, is it Ctrl-C?

Is emerge --update world really necessary? If so, how often do I need to run it?

Thanks.

No (except during the merge phase) and yes. See also Continue Incomplete Merge, How to?

emerge -U world - How often (althoug -U is deprecated)
