I am just in the process of migrating my girlfriend from Windoz to Linux (she loves linux - I'm so lucky
). I installed Gentoo on my computer and want to install Gnome on her's without installing Mozilla (it takes ages to emerge as well as taking up loads of space).
When I did it, I followed Gentoo's superb installation guide. The commands for installing Gnome were:
# emerge --pretend gnome
# emerge gnome
# emerge xscreensaver
# env-update && source /etc/profile
And then, after watching my computer spend about an hour just comiling and isntalling Mozilla, I uninstalled it.
How would I install Gnome WITHOUT installing Mozilla? I though something like:
# emerge --ask gnome
I have never done that before. Does it give you the option to install a specific package and then you say "yes or no"?
The problem with this method is that it would be VERY time consuming. Also, I'm concerned that I might miss out some important files.
Ideally I'm looking for a command like;
# emerge gnome --exclude mozilla
Looking at tthe man page, I see that this command doesn't exist. Is there something similar? I also wondered about adding something in the USE variable in /etc/make.conf but I don't really knwo what I would write.
Thanks in advance.
