1 I'm installing from the i686 full install iso I obtained from the France
2 mirror. Once reaching the point of installing the packages, I discovered
3 that my cd was bad. I'm currently obtaining the iso again to burn a new cd,
4 but I had one question. Using the packaging system installed, is it feasable
5 to emerge all packages in the ..../All directory on the cd? I'm not an
6 advanced user, and so I'm having difficulty determining which packages are
7 neccessary. If it is not going to be a good idea to install all the
8 packages, then I may just go through them one-by one and attemp to make a
9 best-guess.
11 I am rather excited, by the way, about installing this distribution. After
12 using other more popular ones for several months, I was dismayed at the
13 number of bugs that are rampant. I know that as long as new features are
14 added, bugs will keep appearing, but I'm hoping to bring that to a minimum.
16 Thanks and good luck,
17 James Tiller
