13 Ok, thanks :)
15 So this interaction is one more thing to get simpler? I'm starting to think
16 that i should seek for some very-very small part of portage to develop,
17 because size of things [amount of work], which i already think i should
18 improve in some way, is getting to somewhere near infinity :) ...ok, near
19 what infinity is for me, not theoretical infinity ;)
21 What is the simplest way to get one portage running in some virtual space
22 where i could install and uninstall without actually changing my system?
23 Using chroot in the same way as when installing gentoo is good?

34 Theory is when you know something, but it doesn't work. Practice is when
35 something works, but you don't know why. Programmers combine theory and
36 practice: Nothing works and they don't know why.
