How to enable parallel fetching?

Postby vampirecoffee » Mon Oct 26, 2009 8:20

Portage can fetch packages in the background while it's installing something else. (This is the default behavior.) Is there some way I can enable that in Entropy?

No, you fetch multiple packages at once using the --multifetch switch, but entropy doesn't order installs in any particular way, and until it does this is inherently unsafe to fetch and install, plus the install of a entropy package is a fraction of the time it takes to compile it, so the time spent downloading while installing would be very small.
