Emerde, Portage For Slackware
Has anyone used Emerde (

minio 10-20-2003 01:16 PM

No. But thanks for tip :D

I really am curious about this... It is a port of Gentoo's emerge for Slackware 9.1 / current. I haven't tried it, mostly do to bandwidth limitations here... but I am curious... like where is the Emerde getting its packages/software etc???? Is it grabbing the software from the Gentoo software repository and then compiling locally?

Darnaus 10-20-2003 04:22 PM

doesnt swaret do essentially the same thing?

DarkSpy 10-20-2003 04:25 PM

No.. swaret installs precompiled packages from Slackware mirrors. Emerde should download and compile the software you want (and the dependencies).. but I didn't used it (or portage), just wanted some feedback.

Very unfortunate name though., emerde: it means 'oh shit' in french (et merde!)...

h1tman 10-20-2003 06:56 PM

lol maybe its that on purpose. like oh shit, they ported emerge?

Angelo 10-20-2003 08:05 PM

Or "Oh shit, why is it installing all this crap I don't want!" :)

I made this thread so I could have construtive feedback, no nonsense posts.


laurentbon 10-21-2003 09:10 AM

No sense of humor DarkSpy?
Surely, those comments don't hurt...
And if someone had any feedback to give you, i am sure our 3 posts won't prevent him for doing so!
Chill out...

I prefer you say Emerde sucks when you really try it, and then think its shit (if that's the case).

I've been posting my progress on forum, working pretty good right now, still testing. I'm on a test machine so who cares if I break it right?


JoooN 10-21-2003 12:50 PM

I'v tried it.. it's buggy, but some apps work "emerde"

I'll just wait for swaret to get repositories.

h1tman 10-21-2003 08:16 PM

try slapt-get
i think they are working wit

DarkSpy 10-21-2003 08:19 PM

Slapt-get is just like apt-get/swaret.. that's that's not the same has portagewhich compiles all packages from source.
