When would that be available?

Not possible :( dont have a running alpha system "big enough" top compile on today.

Sounds interesting.. And how would i du in more detail? I am fairly new to Gentoo, and not much of a programmer. I unpacked the "stage1-alpha-1.4-r1.tbz2" That gave me a stage1 tree to chroot into. But then what? Do i just chroot /mnt/where-i-put-it /bin/bash ? How do i build a new portage rescue? And how do i use it? -- /Rikard ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Rikard Johnels email : rikjoh@××××××.se Web : http://www.rikjoh.com Mob : +46 735 05 51 01 ------------------------ Public PGP fingerprint ---------------------------- < 15 28 DF 78 67 98 B2 16 1F D3 FD C5 59 D4 B6 78 46 1C EE 56 > -- gentoo-alpha@g.o mailing list
