Is there any interest to start a binary release of gentoo with precompiled
binaries. Im talking the entire source tree i know many people that would
switch to gentoo if they would not have to compile every thing from source .
not everyone has the fastest computer out there.
I would be internested in helping work on a binary port of gentoo. I know
there would be some issues with having a binary port
1. use settings ( maybe have 2 versions of apps one clean andone loaded ie
kde and gnome support)
2. cflags (maybe support multible processors i586 i686 pentuim3 pentuim4
I believe there will be others . i have alot of computers and Im willing to
help out sence and I have lots of free time
I know this is possible though I have built packages on one machine and
installed them on other slower machines.
Note > im not talking about a grp like install thats on a cd , but as a new
edition to the portage ebuild system as a whole IE: setting in make.conf
makes emerge get binarys .
