env-update — updates environment settings automatically

Synopsis

env-update [options]

Description

env-update reads the files in /etc/env.d and automatically generates /etc/profile.env and /etc/ld.so.conf.  Then ldconfig(8) is run to update /etc/ld.so.cache.  env-update is run by emerge(1) automatically after each package merge.  Also, if you make changes to /etc/env.d, you should run env-update yourself for changes to take effect immediately.  Note that this would only affect new processes.  In order for the changes to affect your active shell, you will probably have to run source /etc/profile first.

Options

--no-ldconfig

Do not run ldconfig (and thus skip rebuilding the ld.so.cache, etc...).
