1 Hello,
3 I've tried Gentoo and have a couple of suggestions. I am not a Linux wizard
4 but not a total newbie. As someone with mediocre knowledge I pass on two
5 suggestions:
7 1. In the installation instructions let the user know to select Linux (x82
8 or x83, I don't remember right now) as the filesystem type when using
9 Reiser.
11 2. This is more important. My system is one that has an onboard Highpoint
12 RAID controller (Abit KT7-RAID). In the install when you must chroot after
13 mounting the cd image I was unable to follow the instructions further
14 because there were not devices for hard drives e,f,g,h only a,b,c,d. To
15 install I was forced to move the drive I wanted to install to the other
16 controller because I didn't know how to create the necessary devices at that
17 point. This just made the disk disappear and I had to install LILO because
18 Grub was totally lost.
20 Thanks for Gentoo. It looks like the Linux I've been looking for.
