Subject: Stage3 better than stage1/2
Date: Thu, 2 Dec 2004 20:53:05 +0100
Hi all

Rac pointed me to the following thread:
  http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic.php?t=254119
    
In short, he advises to use stage3 even if you want to perform a stage1 or
stage2 so that you won't have issues with things like circular dependencies
(foo depends on bar which depends on foo) and files on your system that
aren't registered in Portage' DB.

If this is indeed the case, we might want to update our installation
instructions with this (rewrite completely or add it to the stage
explanations). I don't know how much of this is backed up, but I recon rac's
not that wrong ;)

Strange though that this hasn't been communicated to GDP beforehand (or is
my mind playing tricks on me again).

Wkr,
      Sven Vermeulen
