I have chosen Gentoo for my Linux distribution. I installed it in VirtualBox for practice purposes only, so I just gave it 10GB of disk space. Yesterday when I tried to
emerge the Chromium package, it printed the following:
"There is NOT at least 5GB disk space at /var/tmp/portage/www-client/chromium-42.0.2311.90/temp. Space constrains set in the ebuild were not met"
5GB? Why does it need so much space? If it is true, it means that it will be impossible to install Chromium on some machines which have little disk space. Or there is another way to install it which I don't know about?
