Why are we talking about Gentoo? Gentoo doesn't even use RPMs. I suppose you could build one, if you were a developer and needed to package something for everybody else, but the normal manner of installing programs under Gentoo is to compile programs from source using a script called an ebuild
. I don't even have rpm
installed on my system, though I do have rpm2targz
. Even the two packages that I have installed from pre-compiled binary for one or another reason are provided as tar.gz archives, not RPMs.
And no one claimed that ludwig W
was using Gentoo anyway, so I am very confused as to why the distro is being referred to in any way
