1 Hello everyone !
3 Here are a few of my thoughts about the portage system.
4 Pehaps you can tell me if something will be changed to my needs and to that
5 what I understand Gentoo wants to be as announced on their website.
7 If I have the X-Flag set, which is okay because I want X, and try to emerge
8 jed to have a good editor, Gentoo wants to compile the whole XFree-Package to
9 also get xjed which I didn't want.
11 It compiles X with all drivers - Sorcerer Linux asked, which X11-drivers are
12 needed.
13 Same with alsa - all card-drivers are made, I have to edit the ebuild-file and
14 all changes will be gone after the next emerge rsync.
16 As you see with XMMS and the complainments about the avi-plugin, especially
17 the Gentoo-user wants to have the power to control what is compiled and
18 installed.
19 And if I correctly understand the webpage then this is what Gentoo wants to
20 provide - but IMHO it doesn't at the moment.

24 Nonetheless a very good distribution
