Last week I installed portage on my RHEL laptop at work. There was this post, which is now rather outdated. I downloaded the portage tarball and installed it from there. Then used `emerge-webrsync`since I am behind a firewall at work. Then I emerged gentoolkit and eix. After the next reboot, I had to fix my /etc/ld.so.conf which was missing some entries, and run `ldconfig -v`. I wonder what caused it to be changed. It is working now, but I feel I need to be really careful with it. Anyone else running gentoo on Redhat?

Perhaps I should give Portage a try on my FC4 install. :)

I did have a hybrid Slackware/Atomic Linux/Gentoo installation on my laptop at one stage.

While it did work reasonably well, it still had some weird issues, and I ended up going to pure Gentoo Linux on the machine.

Almost certainly, if you're running a hybrid distribution like this, don't bother filing bugs on bugs.gentoo.org -- I can pretty much guarantee you'll get told to try reloading.

Not planning to either. Now I see the beauty of /etc/portage/package.mask and `emerge --fetchonly`. I just got fed up with some compilations I needed to do, that had a bunch of dependencies, which I could resolve in Gentoo with just `emerge X`.
