1 ok i'm new to both linux and gentoo. so plz don't flame me. yet, in order to get rid of gcc and portage why not compile or write a self-compile/extract thing-a-ma-jig (pre-build) the packages desired. does this defeat your goal?

18 This is very interesting. Such a simple idea. Anyhow I have also been
19 looking at ways to get rid of portage/gcc/dev tools out of Gentoo. But
20 my goal has been to clean the system of dev tools and thus portage
21 (since it would be useless without dev tools) so as to create server
22 installations. (Although I also have had a side interest in getting a
23 knoppix-like system built solely out of gentoo.)
25 I wonder if it would be possible to somehow remotely "mount" the rest of
26 the stuff such as gcc/python etc.. as with portage. So this way the
27 system would be completely clean and when it needs to be updated a
28 script would mount/link the tools from a remote system and after its
29 done upgrading it would unlink and we are left with a lean clean system.
31 Any thoughts on this?
33 PD. I already have attempted at removing gcc and whatnot from Gentoo but
34 have ended up with a nonbootable system. I would really appreciate if
35 anyone who has had success in doing this would shed some light and give
36 some tips.
38 Cheers,
40 Vano.
