1 I'm just installing my first Gentoo system ever, so I thought before
2 I forget I could tell you my experience. (The bootstrap is running,
3 so I have nothing else to do anyway :-)
5 * The documentation could say that support for a lot of network cards
6 is already compiled into the kernel. I was quite shocked when I
7 couldn't find the module for my Realtek card... (Or are the
8 modules on the initrd and it loads them from there? I know nothing
9 about initrd. But it doesn't matter, I think.)
11 * Maybe the installation documentation could say something about the
12 USE variable. Is it better to add a lot of settings right from the
13 start, or is it okay to just start with a few and then add more as
14 we go along?
16 I decided to add lots of settings that I think I will need.
18 * Maybe a word about continuation lines could be said. It seems I
19 can just break the line within the quotes, but how about saying
20 this explicitly?
22 * I kinda got confused about the network setup. (That shock about the
23 missing Realtek module must have been pretty severe :-) So I'm not
24 sure if the following is relevant. My dhcp server appears to need a
25 hostname. Does net-setup allow me to type one in? If not, it might
26 be a good feature.
28 Just to avoid any misunderstandings, I've been reading
30 which I hope was the right thing to do.
32 Now I will go back and read some email. Stay tuned for more stupid
33 messages after the bootstrap has finished... (Or just tell me to
34 shut up if I'm annoying.)
