Portage configuration question


I started a gentoo installation from stage 2 and when I was configuring /etc/make.conf I did not add the line
MAKEOPTS="-j2"
is my installation doomed?

nope. "-j2" just allows make to run 2 jobs at once. It may affect you compilation speed slightly, but it is nothing to worry about. You can add that line now if you want, and everything will be fine. Just remember to run "env-update" after modifying the file.
