I am in the process of planning a difficult upgrade of my outdated system, and I have gentoo installed on a different partition. I can easily chroot into this brand new system to configure things, test applications and plan the upgrade. While chroot'ed, I'd like to try X and desktop environments (KDE or another, more lightweight DE).


I found this:
http://www.gentoo-wiki.info/HOWTO_startx_in_a_chroot
but it's from 2008, some things do not work as described, and I'd like to understand more.

For example, it says:
echo "sys-kernel/kernel-sources-version" >> /etc/make.profile/package.provided
but:
bash: /etc/make.profile/package.provided: No such file or directory

/etc/portage/make.profile/ exists but not /etc/portage/make.profile/package.provided
