Only with 4GB, compiling GUI packages was not possible. My laptop's CPU is slow, too.

Thus, I extracted stage3 archive into folders on a fast build machine and created commands that execute commands in the folders.
  • sudo chroot-machine1 emerge -uDN @world
  • sudo chroot-machine2 emerge -uDN @world
  • ...

rsyncd runs on the build machine and serves as a remote binhost for slow machines.

/etc/portage/binrepos.conf
Code:
[main-binhost]
priority=9999
sync-uri = rsync://[ipv6-address]:port/machine1-binhost-module


Now, gentoo is useable on slow machines.

Moved from Portage & Programming to Documentation, Tips & Tricks as its not a support question
