How many of you actualy have gentoo installed?
Be honest
>>
Yes.
>>
>>
>>50830092
yeah. I have done a complete install. wifi, graphcis, sound, KDE (I just picked KDE because why not), and everything else that is necessary. it was a lot of fun, only took two days first full install. if I do that a few more times, I can get gentoo installed in a matter of hours.
>>
>>50830092
I have on my three computers.
>>
>>50830092
Installed it three times.Was not impressed.Seriously,it's not even that great.It's more of a pain to install than Arch, and it's effort to pay-off ratio is miniscule.Recommened only for autists with hang ups over the most niggling details.

back in 2004 - 2006 i use to use gentoo as my only distro and linux as my only OS.

it was great then. had a amd 3500+ and then upgraded to a 4800+. those compile times on the 4800+ at the time where amazing since it was a dual core.

then when vista came out i went back to windows for muh dx10 games.

then around 2008 i started to mess around with arch linux as a dual boot. herd people say it was like gentoo but binary and better community. been using arch since along with windows - muh games.

>>50830092
i use it for testing some things in a sandboxed environment. It is lightweight enough that the virtual machine boot time is rather fast. (~30-35 seconds)
>>
>>50830092
Yup, with Unity as my DE.
>>
>>50832086
I don't quite see why everyone hates on it. It does the job and looks fine. Still, you're an idiot.

>no tilling window manager

>>50830092
I've started Linux from scratch several times, don't have the patience to get very far. Haven't bothered with Gen2 at all.
>>
No, arch is the most I would want to sink my time into.

Run Debian and Ubuntu now.
>>
>>50832144
my god, why???
that is NOT a stable system to use for daily use. It is meant entirely for teaching people the structure of linux (and in general computers)

I couldn't get past configuring the kernel options and modules. Went with something easier.
>>
>>50832487
should have just used the gen-kernel
best option for the first install
