You may only post in this thread if you use Gentoo.
congrats, i couldn't maintain it and prefer to boot into an install script and not a shell
it's a nice distro, somewhat odd software choices in the long install FAQ, best bundled utils of any linux, comfy BSD-style init
it's like a DIY minimal mac os x for linux users
ricing, timesink. same as arch.
it's a meme because it was originally very complicated and time-consuming to install, so saying "install gentoo" was kind of like saying "go fly a kite, buzz off". It's since gotten simpler and anyone who can follow a guide can do it. it's still more involved than setting up most distros though
>same as arch.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHA Newfag detected
I got it running in a VM, with no signs of GUI anywhere
Do you think I can run Gentoo on an X201 I have coming soon? I was gonna use Arch, since I have the most experience with it but compiling looks so beneficial.
I'm getting the i5 version.
They fell for the meme
When do we have punch and touch weiners?
I dual boot arch and gentoo, but here's my gentoo install in a chroot from arch
Everything else runs BSD besides a computer I use for testing stuff which is running Slackware/LFS.
>impressive, did you even install gentoo on a raspberry pi 2?
Did you mean to say how did I? If you didn't then yes I did that machine is an RPI2.
If you did, it's much easier than installing regular Gentoo since everyone who wants to use Gentoo on the RPI2 has the same hardware so if you want a fairly simple setup it's just as easy as using ArchARM as far as the installation goes. There are lots of guides out there.
My workload is getting a bit too heavy for the RPI though.
But it doesn't work in the same way... Not that gentoo is hard but arch is damn near stupid proof with 99% hardware compatibility, no kernel configuration, and in general follow directions and it "just werks"
Not bad, I just use it for simple headless server stuff:
NFS handling some disks in a BTRFS RAID, seedbox(rtorrent/rutorrent+lighttpd), MPD/ncmpcpp, serving Tor to the LAN, so I'm not compiling stuff like firefox/webkit.
Honestly it's really capable for what it is and I've only wanted to upgrade since it started handling a large amount of bittorrent traffic from my rtorrent setup.
HOLY CRAP this is awesome
I'm practically running Arch and Gentoo AT THE SAME TIME
I can windows too if I want
fortunately I generally don't
