Gentoo Linux

Gentoo

Just out of curiousity, I tried Gentoo. I had doubts because it takes so long for everything to compile. After installing with a networkless install, I learned it did it with binary packages instead of compiling from source, so I had to ‘emerge -uDNva world’.

After using it for a while, I’ve decided the following:

It’s faster than binary based distributions (Atleast, for me.)
It’s more fun to use (If you like learning.)
It has some of the best documentation pages I’ve ever read.
It’s not as hard to setup as I thought before.

Gentoo (Again)

Gentoo annoyed me after several attempts to recompile my system. Firstly, it gave me some random error with no decent information. After googling it, nothing interesting came up.

Frustrated, I rebooted my computer.
