I dont know very much about linux...

but is there a way to make portage fetch packages while compiling... if not, I think that's a good idea, because I'm installing gentoo from a chrooted enviroment and I have two terminals open, one compiling and other downloading gnome, as I thought is faster...because I not "losing" time compiling, I'm downloading everything while compiling.

Maybe is there a way to make portage download packages while compiling other packages in the same installation process...like to portages running at the same time?

(excuse my english)

if you run emerge -f <whatever> then emerge will download the packages. So run "emerge -f" in one terminal and "emerge" in another. Portage is completely capable of running at the same time, if one is using a certain file, then the other cant access it, so there are no problems.

that's what I'm doing... but I was wondering if there is a way to do it in the same terminal, like a portage funtion...

I think that portage should do that by default download and compile at the same time... the make things faster... when you are compiling gnome or kde, one hour less of installation helps a lot!

I am pretty sure that there is work going on in order to get portage to download and compile at the same time, but for now you have to run 2 emerge processes to do it. Running "emerge -f <whatever> &" will run the fetching emerge process in the background. However, since you cant get any output that way, the best way is to run it in its own terminal; after all, I cant think of any time that I have had access to only one terminal in gentoo.

I hope that someone is working on that.... my gnome installation is "faster" that method.. I think that is not that difficult to make that.

Moved from Portage & Programming to Duplicate Threads in favour of the FAQ GF4: Can portage build one package while downloading others?
