Hi! I'm new to Gentoo and this is my first post here.

Just installed Gentoo from stage1, everything worked like a charm, and it is really fast (emerged X11 and KDE, it rocks here). OK, only thing that annoy me is next one.. I have flat rate 128kbps link to Internet, and everything pull from mirrors there, but 128kbps is little bit slow, so sources takes long time to download...

When download finishes, emerge starts to compile it and it again takes long time... But.. when, for example, "emerge kde", then it pulls lots of packages and does it by first download one package, then STOP downloading while it compiles, then download another package while STOP compiling and over and over until finishes.

Will that be possible to work this way:

Download first package from mirror, then start comiling, but don't wait to finish compiling, start download of another package immediately after first download finishes... and like that until it finishes download everything...

This way, it will not waste time in waiting to download every package between compiling ones.

Is it possible to tune portage for this behaviour?

Thanks!

Sort of, please see the FAQ GF4: Can portage build one package while downloading others?

Moved from Portage & Programming to Duplicate Threads.
