changelog

Porthole project is a GTK-based frontend for Portage (the Gentoo package management system). It features a hierarchial view of packages and supports fast searches and dependency calculations. Porthole works mainly by running "emerge" commands in its own terminal window, and supports most emerge operations.

Porthole is released under the GPL.

Porthole is partially based on an earlier program called gportage, which has been discontinued in favour of Porthole.

Although Porthole is intended for use with the GNOME desktop environment, it has also been known to work fine under KDE. Apart from GTK, the only GNOME-related dependancy is libglade. However, if you are looking for a more KDE-specific portage frontend, you might want to try Kuroo.
