            Emerde in SUSE.
            hi, I tested on SUSE 9.1 Personal(upgrade to Pro by HTTP upgrade).

            However I met this problem. It being told that Emerde works well on other RPM based Redhat and Mandrake,so I took risk to try on my SUSE. What's going on actually? SUSE use different style of grouping,which is username is not equal to group number, UID!=GID.

            How to solve this matter?

            portage: 'portage' user or group missing. Please update baselayout

            and merge portage user(250) and group(250) into your passwd

            and group files. Non-root compilation is disabled until then.

            Also note that non-root/wheel users will need to be added to

            the portage group to do portage commands.

            For the defaults, line 1 goes into passwd, and 2 into group.

            portage:x:250:250:portage:/var/tmp/portage:/bin/false

            portage::250:portage

            Bad joke
            I am sorry to tell you that 'merde' in French means
            'shit'

            For every french people, your project name sounds
            like eshit, which is rather unfortunate.
