Using Gentoo portage files and Optimizing the system

Post by fernandoc1 » Mon Feb 01, 2010 14:04

I was using gentoo a while ago and I loved the performance of it in my machine, specially because I was able to play Oblivion on wine with a reasonable speed. But after I tried to use an "emerge --update --deep world" my system has stopped working. Now I'm having lots of trouble to reinstall it because some packages don't compile anymore and I don't know why.

Then I wanna know if Sabayon Linux has the option to I use the portage distfiles folder - that is where I have 8 GB of source code - to recompile the hole system with my processor's specific flags.
However if there is another way to optimize my system, please let me know.

On Gentoo I was using these flags on my make.conf:

CFLAGS="-O3 -march=amdfam10 -pipe"

DISTDIR=/home/portage/source # A separate partition where I put the files, so I can then even after erasing all the system.

Is there a way to use it on Sabayon?

if you want to use portage, use the corecd, edit configs, recompile and than build from there. This will be the easiest and less trouble free route
