Subject: [gentoo-user] Emerge building a binary from installed package
Date: Sat, 22 May 2010 08:34:11
1 Hi,
3 I think there is a way to do this but it's not sticking out at me on the
4 emerge man page. I'm doing a install and want to build a binary package
5 from my running system and install it on the new install. Basically, I
6 don't want to recompile, I just want emerge to copy the correct files
7 and make a tarball for me.
9 I found the buildpkg option but that seems to compile it first then make
10 a tarball. Can I get it to skip the compile part? Is that a option
11 that portage has?
13 Thanks.
