Hi, I have the following problem:
Yesterday I did emerge --sync, emerge -up world which gave me a two-pages list of updates. After that I emerged a few packages in one go. While emerge was building packages, I ran a program which apparently crashed either the X-Server or the Kernel, haven't found out yet.

I had to reset the computer and a few files were corrupted; I had to do an ldconfig and an env-update before many programs started working again.
However, It seems that the list of installed packages or something similar has gone corrupted, because when I now do an emerge -up world it only shows me _2_ packages, which is definitely too little.

Where could the corrupted file be? Is there any way to regenerate it?

Thanks for any help

Please see the FAQ GF16: Corrupt or empty world file, what do I do?
