Is there a GUI in portage for managing an LV? Fedora etc have system-config-lvm but I cant find anything for gentoo.

Anyone knows how PORTAGE_ELOG_COMMAND is really supposed to work? I did read the documentation in /etc/make.conf and http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handbook/handbook-x86.xml?part=3&chap=1 The API is not documented. I _assumed_ that the program ...Message posted on the August 23rd, 2012 - 11:20 AM ET
[gentoo-user] new machine : DVD drive
Apologies for the elementary questions, but I'm a bit slow to change (smile). In designing my new machine, I assumed that I would simply transfer the CD drive from the existing box to the new one, but (1) the new mobo seems to have only SATA ...Message posted on the August 20th, 2012 - 6:30 AM ET

[gentoo-user] vmware-tools and revdep-rebuild
Hello, after upgrading the kernel on a Gentoo machine which is a VMWare guest, I also upgraded vmware-tools (this means, emerge the package, mount the .iso with -o loop, and run ./INSTALL).

[gentoo-user] revdep-rebuild problem

[gentoo-user] /usr/tmp -> /var/tmp a problem with new udev?
I realize that new udev without dracut wants /usr part of root filesystem. The last few gentoo installations I have done all had /usr/tmp symlinked to /var/tmp and I don't believe I did this symlink manually. Will this be a problem with new udev ...Message posted on the August 17th, 2012 - 9:00 AM ET
[gentoo-user] common flags for 2 cpu?
I'm in need of some expert advise about CFLAGS. I'm going to install Gentoo in two systems, an Atom 330 and a P4 prescott. Since compiling lots of stuff in an Atom is less than joyful, I intend to do almost all compilation on the prescott and ...Message posted on the August 17th, 2012 - 5:10 AM ET

[gentoo-user] crosscompiling...the point of view
Hi, I am asking, because I found not only one description of somehow complicated setups to compile a distribution (namely gentoo) for a platform "A" (Beaglebone TI OMAP4) on that platform with distcc to speedup things or with emulated ...Message posted on the August 6th, 2012 - 9:10 AM ET

[gentoo-user] Grub2 and is the upgrade a tooth puller.
Howdy, It appears that grub2 is coming soon. Thread on -dev said a couple months or so till it hits the tree, keyworded and/or masked I'm sure. I guess it is about time to jump off the cliff and give this a try. I installed Kubuntu on a system ...Message posted on the June 25th, 2012 - 1:10 AM ET
