Question Mandrake and emerge / portage


Hello there

I've got a question about Mandrake and gentoo's emerge/portage.

I am a gentoo user in the business and a Mandrake 9.1 user at home. And now I want change from Mandrake 9.1 to 10.1 at home. But because I really like the emerge, I want also use it on my mandrake system. And now I'm curious: Is it possible to use portage/emerge on my Mandrake System?

Is there someone who knows that?

Thanks and regards,
Zwisel

I don't believe emerge is available except for Gentoo and it's offspring.

Well the closet equiavlent to gentoo for mandrake would be..

urpmi <package>

You could use that and install source rpms..

But emerge is a Gentoo thing... while Mandrake uses the Redhat Package Manager



Cheers, Gary

I've heard of people getting portage to work under OS X so it's probably possible, I just wouldn't have a clue how

I use Gentoo 2004.3 and Mandrake 10.1 OE, and portage for Mandrake would be dandy. And I know it is possible, because the portage maintainers are porting portage to many operating systems; OS X, Darwin, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, NetBSD, and many more. If this can be done, then portage for Mandrake can be done. I absolutely hate rpms, but I like mandrake, the old catch 22.
