Rizzn Gives Gentoo a Thumbs Down!
Is it wrong to want to have an OS installed in less than 16 hours? I’m sure it didn’t help that I had three sources of instructions competing with each other on being the “right” set of instructions a)ssz, b)strider, c)the fscking manual.
I’m sure it didn’t help that windows reported one chipset on my laptop, and BIOS reported another, so I downloaded something close to both of their reccomendations.
I’m sure it didn’t help that the instructions were 30 pages long.
I’m sure it didn’t help that I wrote my lilo.conf by hand.
I’m sure it didn’t help that I downloaded three versions of the kernel source.
I’m sure it didn’t help that I’d been up 20 hours by the end of it.
None the less, I’m disgusted by Gentoo. I really wanted to be running a bleeding edge OS, I really did. But it’s not in the card for me. I’ve got a really busy schedule to keep up with and I can’t afford spending another day attempting to install a trendy OS.
I’m re-downloading the new release of Knoppix. It installs in five minutes. It copies to the hard drive in 30. Beat that.
