If you preserve things like the portage database the next livecd could be the next stage4.<br><br>&gt; &gt; (I was actually writing a GTK gui that did just that along<br>&gt; &gt; with specific ps3 configurations).<br>&gt; <br>&gt; Check the graphical installer available in recent releases, I'm quite <br>&gt; 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. Since the ps3 install from a stage4 is so simple I figured it would be easy to create and maintain a separate installer. <br><br>&gt; &gt; It's really annoying to compile everything from a stage3,<br>&gt; &gt; are you dropping stage4 support for it?<br>&gt; <br>&gt; I'd suggest to use a cross-distcc setup to speed things up...<br>&gt; <br>&gt; lu<br><br>For me yes, but cross-compiling isn't officially supported, so ruling out an official stage4 would leave a stage3 install with compiling everything on the ps3 the only supported way to do things. I was hoping this would be a first contact to linux to many users (since it's the only OS installable on the ps3), while I appreciate the gentoo handbook approach a lot, until crossdev is working better it's just too hard for them wouldn't you agree?<br><br><br>nelson<br /><hr />Obtenha 30 Emoticons grĂ¡tis para o seu Windows Live Messenger <a href='http://get.live.com' target='_new'>Clica aqui!</a></body>
