Hi all,
I've a xbox running 24/7 Gentoox Pro, recently I upgraded my box to 128MB of ram, and I want to try KDE. So my question is:

Is it possible to use the "Package CD" from to emerge precompiled KDE in Gentoox? (I don't really want to wait about 60hours.. of compilation..)

I saw in the official doc how to do that:

Code: Select all

(If there is a /mnt/cdrom/packages directory:)
# export PKGDIR="/mnt/cdrom/packages"

# export PKGDIR="/mnt/cdrom"

# emerge --usepkg kde
Will this work on Gentoox?
