Subject: [gentoo-user] Portage internals : shadow root

1 Hi,
3 when portage installs a package, it first installs it into some "shadow
4 root". Then it records all files installed before it moves the files to
5 the "real root".
7 I have to do some installations on SUSE systems (which are not
8 administered by me) and I'd like to imitate that procedure there.
10 Can anybody tell me if it's not too complicated and if yes, how to
11 achieve this (on a foreign system like SUSE).
13 Many thanks for your help,
14 Helmut.
