1 Guys, first up, let me say I'm a fan of gentoo, for want of a better
2 word, it tastes good!
3 :-)
5 I haven't really had a chance to look at the system closely, I'm payed
6 to babysit some solaris servers, not play with my workstation - which is
7 what brings me to my question:
9 How hard would it be to extend the emerge/portage system for other OS's.
10 I'm particularly interested in the idea of being able to do something
11 like an "emerge kde" on a sun box, and have kde and required stuff
12 appear under /opt or /usr/local somewhere.
14 Has anyone else considered this?
16 Thanks,
17 Tristan.
