8 You can mount the remote filesystems over nfs and then set ROOT=/mnt/remote to
9 make the portage on the original system install stuff on the remote one. This
10 method also has its problems of course. Last time I tried it -- I had lots of
11 trouble with for example mplayer autodetecting some libraries on the compiling
12 computer that are not installed on the slow host that I was compiling for. Even
13 emerge -p was failing because the version of glibc on the compiling system was
14 older (only by a release) than the one on the remote system.
17 Another thing I tried -- mount the remote filesystems with full permissions,
18 chroot over there and start compiling. You may want to "mount -o bind
19 /var/tmp/portage /mnt/remote/var/tmp/portage" and also do the same with
20 /usr/portage. I of course assume that programs compiled on the slow machine
21 would run on the fast one as well (and this is usually the case).
