Error updating e2fsprogs 1 40 8 gentoo
I neither have the time for that, the need for that level of customization, or the desire to know that much about Linux or my OS, period.
Yes, source makes it possible to install Super Duper software on Unix, BSD, AIX, UAX, Linux and its multitude of flavors, IN THEORY. Have you set gcc and binutils after any upgrades of those? "gcc-config -l" and "eselect binutils list" then "eselect binutils set 1" or whatever number appropriate. but the pitfalls of this to gain little performance, and possibly add back one thing that Ubuntu borq's which is easily dealt with another way... I am sure that some Gentoo fan will retort how this is how it should be yadda yadda. In some specific cases I can see having a system built from source and totally spec'd out to what it includes. ] required by (x11-libs/lib SM-1.2.2::gentoo, ebuild scheduled for merge) (x11-libs/lib ICE-1.0.8-r1::gentoo, installed) pulled in by (no parents that aren't satisfied by other packages in this slot) x11-libs/lib SM:0 (x11-libs/lib SM-1.2.2::gentoo, ebuild scheduled for merge) pulled in by x11-libs/lib SM[abi_x86_32(-)? Ok binutils said 1 was already set and is the only choice available. I tried the Gentoo forums, since Gentoo seems unpopular here and they found my issue.
Must say they are more helpful than most distro specific forums I see.
I've been through that compilition nightmare, no thanks. No it is not fullproof 100% of the time, but its near 99% or better. It is one of the reason 95% of all servers have been moved to some derivative of Ubuntu.
As I've said before RPM fanbois need not reply that RPM can do the same. Only those who can vehemently justify a Cent OS server will get it. Hope you have a good clairvoyant so you can get a note from your long dead granny!
I need to get boxes online and operating, along with a wide selection of software that is EASILY INSTALLABLE. More power to you if you want to go this route with your OS, I don't.
Choosing to go off a custom build of Kubuntu, meaning I take the Kubuntu ESR's and build a desktop, server, laptop image and then image that to machines or VM's. I've got my own software to worry about at that level, and I don't have time to deal with that kind of stuff on the OS level.
