When: Tue June 10, 2014 07:30 PM to 09:00 PM

Speaker: Glenn Kerbein

Location: O'Reilly Media's Tarsier conference room

Following in line with the prior talks about package managers, it seems almost natural to ponder about our other distribution choices. Gentoo GNU/Linux offers its own package manager using its own method of obtaining software: Portage. This talk will discuss what Gentoo is; how Portage works; what it does; the program and process of emerge and ebuilds; and some nifty utilities.
