how many packages?

Just a general question
I was wondering if anybody knows how many packages are available in portage, including any overlays...
I wouldn't have a clue how to find out myself.....
Ubuntu has over 26000, I was wondering if portage has anything close to this figure? :)
cheers
symon.

I spent a few weeks w...

Jack/qjackctl [Solved]

hi guys. i've been using Ardour for quite some time in other distro's.... obviously, it needs JackD, which usually comes with Ardour when downloading in the repo's on debian based distro's, and you can use qjackctl as a gui to control/setup JackD...
