Gentoo's Package manager is called Portage. The way Gentoo works is that it downloads source and compiles it on your own computer. There is capacity for binary packages, however these are just in bzip2 compressed tarballs, which Portage handles on its own. -- Regards, -Lisa <Quidquid latine dictum sit, altum viditur>
