9 Okay, I'll try not to feel too guilty.
11 : Latest iso is still rc4_pre. I made a up to date build.tbz2
12 : (gentoo-x86-dist/gentoo-1.0_rc4/packages/build-20010404.tbz2)
13 : yesterday, but portage is a bit flakey at the moment so it is a good

15 :
16 : I have reworked the half of our packages for rc4. Take a look at
17 : current-packages.rc4. I decided to force myself to rework at least 10
18 : packages a day to get this stuff done.
20 Should I just use the rc4_pre iso, or should I use the
21 script to roll together a new rc4_pre2 iso with the latest packages?
23 : The latest portage package includes a new script called emerg. Once it
24 : works it recursively compiles all required packages. So you can grab
25 : the build.tbz2 and say emerge kdebase-2.1.1.ebuild and everything that
26 : kde base-2.1.1 depends on get build automatic.
28 Is this working or will I need to wait until portage is stabilized?
29 Also, how hard is is now to rebuild and update the base stuff (for
30 example, I'd like to compile all the base stuff with i686 optimizations
31 and drop them on top of the defaults)?
33 Thanks in advance...
