Well, based on my experience with Mandrake back in the day, the init
thingy is going to break for me here just like it did there. I'm
thinking about Kubuntu but I may actually decide on something else.
Thing is, it appears Gentoo is going to break my system so I may as well
find something that I can install lots quicker to fix what is broke.
Kubuntu is just one option. I installed it for my brother and it works
fine, SO FAR.
I may be jumping out of the frying pan into a fire but I think I need to
at least try something else. This is very true if I continue to have
issues with the init thingy and not being able to su to root. I know
how to use a console but I only use it when needed. That's not very
often and I sort of like it that way.
Barring that, I could just put everything on / and just hope nothing
goes bonkers and fills it up with useless errors or something in the
messages file. I have had this happen before and /var was full, I mean
FULL. I divide things so that I don't get conquered when it hits the fan.
One thing about Linux, it has a LOT of options.
Oh, there is talk of moving more things on -dev. If I didn't know
better, I'd think someone was trying to just change Gentoo until it
doesn't work any more. I dunno. Maybe I'm ready for a Apple now. o_O

Miss the compile output? Hint:
