Description Igor Korot 2006-04-25 09:23:41 UTC
wxGTK is an evelopment library. I suggest to add the USE-flag to compile it with the source code in the user directory and leave the source on. This way people will be able o debug their applications that was written with the wxGTK, and they will work under their own account and not the 'root'
Comment 1 Jakub Moc (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-04-25 09:32:53 UTC
man emerge
ROOT = [path]
Use ROOT to specify the target root filesystem to be used for merging packages or ebuilds. Defaults to /.

Do not delete the the source and temporary files after the merge process.

Comment 2 Jakub Moc (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-04-25 09:33:59 UTC

DISTDIR = [path]
Defines the location of your local source file repository.
Defaults to ${PORTDIR}/distfiles.
Comment 3 Igor Korot 2006-04-25 09:42:55 UTC
Can I specify the DISTIR to the "emerge"?

Something like "emerge wxGTK DISTDIR=/myhomeir --noclean".

Please, read the man pages (man make.conf, man emerge). What you want is probably something like

DISTDIR="/home/user/distfiles" PORTAGE_TMPDIR="/home/user/tmp" FEATURES="noclean" emerge wxGTK (tarball goes to DISTDIR, PORTAGE_TMPDIR will contain the sources and temporary files).

Not a business for use flags for sure...
