Why haven't you installed gentoo yet? Anonymous 12/16/2016 (Fri) 17:36:10 [Preview] No. 7636

I have more important things to do with my existence.

I did, anon. The only downside is compile times. Would not be a huge problem without bloated software.

I did.

It's great.

I don't have enough ram and the CPU is slow too.

I've been thinking on installing Slackware. I have an oldish computer and I'm sold on it, the website even still lists floppies "just because".
I'm going to see if next week I can put it somewhere.

it doesn't have to be gentoo, just install some other lightweight openRC distro

I did install it and used it for like a month, then I switched back to arch. Installing a distro which has no installer is stupid, compiling EVERYTHING is stupid, having sex with portage is not pleasant. Portage is a piece of over-programmed shit, pacman with abs feels really good after all this shit. Conclusion: gentoo is for those who want to show off.

>Installing a distro which has no installer is stupid
I mostly agree with this, except that it makes sense in the context of the rest of Gentoo. Arch has no excuse for having no installer. Why would you name it as a reason for switching back to Arch?

Operating a fleet (40+) of Chromebooks running Gentoo Hardened.

Every server in my enterprise runs Gentoo.

OpenRC/connman/JACK/eudev on every machine. Lennart Poettering can suck my balls.

The reason I do use Arch is the always up-to-date package base and the pretty pacman. I really like pacman.

So why would you want to mess with gentoo on chromebooks?
Why do you people hate systemd so much if it just works?

Anonymous 01/02/2017 (Mon) 03:46:43 [Preview] No. 7761 del
>It just werks

Systemd is over a thousand lines of code and from what I know, it doesn't have an audit yet.

fuck this whole 'rolling' release distributions that change compiler once every motherfucking week just to see how gcc developers fuck up this time.

but why would you run Gentoo on production server?

good to see someone else running hardened gentoo on Chromebook. Are you using arm based one?

I got Asus rockchip base Chromebook last month and it's working great with musl hardened

I once installed Gentoo. For some reason it wouldn't stop shitting the bed, constant crashes one thing after another. Users were very patient and helpful but it was always something like "oh yeah, you just need to edit these lines and recompile this package." like that was nothing at all. I thought a distro where I compile everything would be cool, but actually it's like a second job. I felt really bad about wasting their time but I gave up. Yeah, that was Gentoo.

My first system was Slackware. Its' lack of package dependency really is more of a negative than you might think. Installing something becomes a pain figuring out what else needs to be installed to make it work.

Gentoo user on both server and desktop. The lack of installer sucked but after I did the first machine I put all the commands into a script.

You won't get much of a performance benefit from flags on x64, which is why Arch-OpenRC is a much more efficient solution.

I'm so deep down the gentoo hole nothing else does it for me anymore aka if I were to install something easier I would just think "fuck it I might as well install windows and get vidya".
Gentoo satiates my autism, it really hits the spot. Also if you're going to be running gentoo I recommend funtoo on a desktop/workstation pc. On a workstation machine the debian kernel will save you a lot of hassle and getting the audio right out-of-the-box is cool for desktops as well (more importantly it's good for laptops). Getting your kernel config right is a long process but just save the .config and bob's your uncle.

t. 1 gentoo desktop and 3 gentoo servers

>tfw QT upgrades

Having to deal with QT is the only negative part of the Gentoo experience, at least for me. Any Gentooman here who leads a QT-less life?

please go back using arch linux
