Description Benjamin Schulz 2004-05-05 08:01:09 UTC
We have this nice package cd.

What If more packages are added (that means: a set of maybe 8 cd's which mirror a compiled portage three. So one could use gentoo as a Debian or Red Heat distribution on slower machines too, with the advantage that gentoo which is lots faster than other distros.

can one tell portage to use some packages on a different path (like /mnt/cdrom) and when the package is not found in this folder let portage say that one should change the cd?

Would be easy to implement.

Reproducible: Always

This is considered useful for months now, but at the momnent we don't have capable ressources for this.
Comment 2 Chris Gianelloni (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-03-25 11:23:55 UTC
Moving these so we can remove the "Install CD" component from "Gentoo Linux".

I apologize to everyone for this spam, but according to the bugzilla developers,
this is the only reasonable way to do this.
