waynedpj Posted November 1, 2016 Report Share Posted November 1, 2016 ahoy all, long time Gentoo user getting a little tired of long and loud compile times on my used hardware, was looking for other options and stumbled upon Funtoo. i am very interested in the philosophy and lots of the features. nice work! however, just wondering if there is a public source for binary builds of packages beyond the common XXXX-bin packages (e.g. firefox-bin, libreoffice-bin, etc), i.e. a public BINHOST server in Gentoo parlance? there are not really any options for Gentoo so i realize this is a long shot. i am also aware that getting binary packages with all the matching arch, compile options and USE flags will be difficult, but it seems like modern portage features such as this would help with that. or at least having binary packages with sane USE flags built for common architectures would be a huge help, as i want to stick with Xtoo+OpenRC but compiling on old hardware (which i exclusively use) is becoming a problem. thanks! peace, w AdiosKid 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
