1 Hello all Gentoo developer,
2 I get an (maybe dumb) idea: Gentoo is VERY OPTIMIZE
3 for your hardware because you have to compile one
4 program by another, and manual fix any problem happen.
5 It is a turn off for Linux newbie even though s/he has
6 a lot of patience. Is there a way to comprise?
7 Assuming the user has a lot time and no trouble
8 happen inbetween.
9 I would suggest how about writing an intelligent
10 installer that will automatically check dependency,
11 download it and install it like urpmi in Manadrake or
12 apt-get in Debian so even new user can enjoy the
13 benefit of optimization WITHOUT the hardwork? i.e. I
14 want to install X, just tell the program and it will
15 take care of the whole process for me. Is it possible?
16 Or how about a pre-written scipt that will do the
17 compile process for different type of pre-set usage
18 like Desktop, Mutimedia, Networking, Internet? i.e. It
19 is not a pre-installed package, it is a pre-set
20 packager that will do the packaging right in front of
21 the user's eye. Each user get the same package and
22 script yet it is OPTIMIZE for their computer after
23 they install it. What do you think about this idea?
25 Thanks of your attention
