It's a better tool, according to the developers, for keeping the
portage database up to date. Don't ask me why. They said to use it so
I did. It searches for things much better than the older equery or
whatever it was.
lightning ~ # eix eix
Available versions: 0.3.0-r1 0.3.0-r2 ~0.5.0 ~0.5.0-r1 ~0.5.1

indexing for fast results

You may run into the issue where emerge --sync or eix-sync is slow. If
that's the case thern there is a mod for speeding it up dramatically:
It looks a little compicated but it really isn't. Just take it slowly.
When you're done updating the database will be far faster.

Sounds like you made great progress.

It will be as lightweight as you want it to be. That's what's nice about Gentoo.
As you get more deeply into it always do your emerges with the -pv
flag first, look at your flags and understand what specific options
are causing things to get dragged in. You'll learn a lot over time
that way also.
Hope it continues to work well.
