11 Thats what I'm trying.
13 I have machines here at office with net connection.
14 the only way I can get the ebuild to work is to havea functional
15 portage directory.
17 I can tar up the current one on machine and copy to new install machine and do it that way.
18 just copying the source and running emerge as you suggested won't help, since you need a net connection
19 to emerge rsync to create a portage tree.
21 I also don't have a CD writer to cut a CD with to transport from machine on net to machine at home.
22 the only way is to download on net machine and remove hdd and take to home machine which I cannot do either because it's
23 a functional server. I don't have machines I can switch off.
25 I have asked in a mail to user list regarding the same problem if there is a way to compile the module for the driver
26 on a machine for the liveCD as this would be smaller and more portable "32 MB usb drive" or something I can arrange.
27 but would be so much easer to have a repostry of liveCD modules that are not on the CD. (tho personally I think the liveCD
28 should have all possible modules included.
30 I'll find a way to do this .. but it is a mission and a pain.
