Every now and then emerge gives up due to trivial errors like lack of swap or disk space. It would then be nice to be able to restart from the latest checkpoint, like this
Code:
emerge --restart

No I mean restart after a created checkpoint for instance after "build" but before "install". Or a more advanced "--resume"

you can use the ebuild command to call the different stages of an ebuild. is this what you are after?

I'm just trying to see how good it would work, when usually there's only a handful of packages that takes a while to compile. Beyond those select few packages that does take some time, the rest generally compiles within 5 or so minutes. This doesn't change much, even if I am working on my old 800 Mhz computer (pre 64-bit).

As for failing, for the last decade, the any failings I've encountered is always a compile failure, not from memory and hard-drive. Last time I had a memory (includes lack of swap space) failure, was over 15 years ago; and since I've never had to deal with that since.

Thanks for the tip. This will perhaps help me. I'm trying to emerge xbmc on Cubieboard2 (ARMv7). The installation step fails after 3-4 hours compilation time. :(
