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?
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.
