Subject: [gentoo-dev] Omitting binary packages (emerge -e world)
Date: Mon, 22 Sep 2003 10:26:03
1 Hello
3 AFAIK this has not been done yet so I thought I would ask about it.
4 Usually, during emerge -e world all packages are recompiled including
5 binary packages which require no compilation. However, it would be nice
6 if all binary packages were omitted from emerge -e world so only those
7 from source are included. That way, time and resources are saved and only
8 those packages affected by new compiler or compiler settings are
9 recompiled. How about it?
11 With regards
