Subject: [gentoo-dev] Portage integrated sandbox

1 Hi all,
3 the first fully functioning version of the sandbox is done. With the
4 help of Azarah it's been integrated into portage. Just untar this
5 archive in /usr/portage and 'sys-apps/sandbox' should appear. A regular
6 emerge installs it. From then onwards, all ebuild unpack, clean, compile
7 and install phases will be protected. Don't be startled when you
8 suddenly get the occasional red 'ACCESS DENIED' error on your screen. A
9 number of packages that are actually in portage don't behave exactly as
10 they should. To get them installed, of course fixing the package is the
11 best option. You can also opt to uninstall the sandbox with 'ebuild
12 /var/db/pkg/sys-apps/sandbox-0.1/sandbox-0.1.ebuild unmerge', this will
13 put portage in the state it was before.
15 Please, those who have a moment to spare, test this so that any feature
16 requests can be implemented and bugs can be resolved.
18 Best regards,
20 Geert
