Subject: [gentoo-user] Simultaneously emerging multiple packages with same dependencies
Date: Wed, 26 Jan 2011 12:14:45
1 Hi,
3 Is there any way to simultaneously emerge multiple packages (multiple
4 instances of 'emerge') that share common dependencies ?
6 I'm aware that portage uses locking mechanism before modifying 'world' file,
7 but what about the actual building process ? I'd expect emerge to check if
8 dependency package is already build/installed (or currently being build by
9 another instance) and just skip it in this case, however I haven't tried it
10 yet.. Can anybody shred some light on this ?
12 Thanks,
13 P.
