Subject: [gentoo-user] Symlinking /usr/portage/distfiles
Date: Sat, 27 Jan 2007 13:21:37
1 Hello,
3 My distfiles is getting quite big and I was thinking of symlinking it
4 to another partition (just as a temporary solution until I find the
5 time to re-partition my hard drive). I know I could just delete what I
6 don't use, but I hope to keep them until the planned reinstall of
7 Gentoo, so that I can use at least part of the 1.1 GiB (my bandwith is
8 limited).
10 Can symlinking /usr/portage/distfiles (and even /usr/tmp/portage) to
11 directories on another ext2 partition hurt Portage? Are there any
12 common pitfalls to this procedure? Are the rights on these directories
13 preserved at the next mount or do I also have to edit fstab?
15 Thanks,
16 Vlad
