New Video on eix

By Erik Letson, August 3rd, 2020 (blog index)

My first new video in ages is available now: It is about the eix portage search utility. Its been quite a while since I last put anything up, and my recording environment has changed considerably in the last little while, so there may be some irregurlarities. In particular, I think my audio in this video is not as good as in my older videos, but I will be fixing that shortly.

As for content, this video is about eix, which is a set of tools for searching and diffing portage packages using a binary cache. It is much faster than emerge --search and has other neat features. Definitely worth checking out.

More videos will be coming in the near future, including others covering eix. Stay tuned!
