Striving for greatness

Thoughts on emerging tech, open source, and life

[Gentoo] Chinstrap, part deux

Karl, I’m glad you saw what I posted about Chinstrap, and I should’ve guessed you were aware of it.

I agree that splitting packages up into -devel, -headers, etc could be a good idea if you were going fully binary, but when you’re just installing a stack of GRP binaries to save some time, it’s a bad idea.

My USE flags are fairly close to the GRP ones, so what I often do is install all the packages I want, then:

emerge world –newuse -va

If I’m in a hurry, I just look for things missing that I care about and compile those.
