Redcore-ify gentoo

I want my gentoo work more like redcore.
Can i just copy over /etc/portage from redcore to gentoo to have more these alike settings. Will this work ? Or create an FrankenStein-Operating-System.

Re: Redcore-ify gentoo

It will work, but it may take a long time to recompile everything affected by the USE changes. It's just easier to install Redcore, remove sisyphus and use the system  as you would use Gentoo. Redcore is basically Gentoo with binary packages, and sisyphus to deal with those binary packages. But you can absolutely remove sisyphus  and use emerge.

Re: Redcore-ify gentoo

Recompile time is not a problem. It's a fast PC.
I will try on gentoo remove /etc/portage & copy over the /etc/portage from Redcore.
Problem is i don't have the "best use-flags-options" on gentoo. For me it's really big with alot of ~amd for all the exceptions.

Re: Redcore-ify gentoo

My Gentoo O.S. became so corrupt i had to delete it. I must find another way to take over the compile&use flags. Maybe manually on file by file base.

Re: Redcore-ify gentoo

Perhaps you didn't use the correct profile. In Redcore Linux the default profile is :

default/linux/amd64/17.1/hardened

which has a minimal set of predefined USE flags, hence why /etc/portage is so extensively populated by us. It allows a "fine tuning".

Some other profiles like may enforce some USE flags such as:

default/linux/amd64/17.1/desktop/plasma/systemd/merged-usr

which will enforce systemd and plasma related USE flags

Systemd and related USE flags are masked in Redcore Linux for example. So if you want to Redcore-ify Gentoo, you need to start small and build your way up. Hence why my initial suggestion of just removing Sisyphus is a simpler approach.

A complete list of profiles can be obtained using :
