If you preserve things like the portage database the next livecd could be the next stage4.<br><br>> > (I was actually writing a GTK gui that did just that along<br>> > with specific ps3 configurations).<br>> <br>> Check the graphical installer available in recent releases, I'm quite <br>> sure would be nice having a patch to support the ps3 target.<br><br>If you're talking about the GLI I personally didn't like it very much for this and the code was huge.
