You can even do this with Mandrake using urpmi --auto-select.
Prepare for much pain however, as stuff can get quite broken.
You can use this to track cooker if you want the latest and
most broken distro, or just to keep your stable distro up to
date with security patches etc.
This is, of course, designed for binary packages, not source
packages. But since Mandrake is compiled for i586 anyway,
your not going to lose much. Do any of the gentoo fans have
any numbers to justify their desire for excessive compiling?
