Don't let testing4l hear you say that. 8) And he got me hooked on it, so I'm quite interested to know why.

hahahaha, yes! *waves Debian flag* :)

any distro, so long as you are not required to compile everything.
Feb. 18th, 2006 12:30 am (UTC)
That's for sure.. Debian and apt-get just have a special place in my heart though
Feb. 18th, 2006 04:01 am (UTC)
that's why I run apt in Red Hat. :D

yum is pretty cool too.

What's that? I'm confused!

gentoo is a linux distribution for people that are IMHO somewhat deranged.
Feb. 18th, 2006 12:55 am (UTC)
Well THAT explains everything.

Gentoo people don't have friends anyways, they're too busy compiling.
Feb. 18th, 2006 12:25 am (UTC)
haha, too true.
Feb. 17th, 2006 09:20 pm (UTC)
Hahaha. I run Gentoo. I got sick of Debian. :P
Feb. 18th, 2006 12:27 am (UTC)
and the gentoo installer didn't send you running for the hills? perhaps installer is too strong a word:

fdisk /dev/hda
mke2fs /dev/hda1....


/me goes back to installing centos

I made supersat do the installs on our two servers. He said it wasn't too bad... ;)

I hated trying to get up to date in Debian. I ♥ emerge. :P
Feb. 18th, 2006 04:00 am (UTC)
Well sure if you don't have to install it yourself ;)
Feb. 18th, 2006 04:38 pm (UTC)
You say "get up to date in Debian" like it's even possible.

Emerge fills my heart with such joy that words cannot express its full measure. Truly, Gentoo is the distribution of the gods, and no other distribution is worthy to even lace its sandal.

(The fact that the install process sucks might matter someday, when I don't have access to rsync. Heh.)

Trying really meant failing miserably. :o

That is SUCH a catchy song. I sw them in concert a few years ago and they played that one with some sort of accompanying light projection show. It also helped me remember an answer to a question once on my astronomy and cosmology exam. :)

You dont have to compile to everything... At least once the portage tree is installed. It's only a 4 hour long install once you have done it 30-40 times ;)
