Hi all,

I have a P4 Mobile Laptop (Dell Inspiron 8200) where I was running (til yesterday) the excellent Gentoo. However, after some time, I had to update the system, and 320 packages or so needed to be updated (I changed the gcc profile from 3.3.4 to 4.1)

In a stupid moment, I uninstalled Gentoo and came back to Ubuntu, which in turn slows quite a lot my PC (but no compiling is needed)

I wonder now, as I have Gentoo in an AMD64 2.2 GHz with spare CPU time, if I can compile Gentoo on the AMD for the P4, and make the P4 download the binaries and just install them (as for instance the OpenOffice in a normal installation).

Thanks in advance,
Pascual.
