Default more than one package directory ?

Hi,

I'd like to use more than one package directory, e.g.
/usr/portage/packages plus plus all stuff on a DVD.

Is there a Gentoo specific way to do so or
do I need an overlay file system like aufs ?

Many thanks for a hint,

Helmut Jarausch

You could set the package directory manually when you need the dvd's
repository, such as:
PKGDIR="/mnt/dvd/packages" emerge --usepkg mozilla-firefox

Based on how portage uses the variable, I'm pretty sure you can't use
more than one simultaneously.

Mount (or symlink) the DVD within the packages directory.
