Subject: [gentoo-user] --buildpkg and doing a dry run on a upgrade
Date: Sat, 21 Aug 2010 10:58:30
1 Hi,
3 I'm wanting to install the latest KDE 4.5 which is in the kde overlay.
4 I got everything unmasked, keyworded and ready to go. Since this is a
5 large upgrade and will take some time to compile, I would like to just
6 build the binaries then come back and install them when the compiling is
7 all done. The emerge man page says this:
9 --buildpkgonly (-B)
10 Creates binary packages for all ebuilds processed without actually
11 merging the packages. This comes with the caveat that all build-time
12 dependencies must already be emerged on the system.
14 The part that I have a question on is the dependencies. Will portage be
15 able to build all the packages when the previous packages are not
16 installed yet? My thinking says this won't work but looking for a
17 second opinion from a more "seasoned" guru.
19 Thanks.
21 Dale
23 :-) :-)
