1 I hope I will be forgiven for wasting bandwidth; I want very much to express
2 my gratitude to those developers, documentation writers, and others, that
3 Gentoo is such an excellent distro. If three is anything I can figure to
4 do---possible documentation or perhaps an ebuild or two---I want to do so.
5 For right now, let me send my thanks to all. I cannot express my good
6 feelings well enough about the solidity of my new install.
8 I have gotten Gentoo running on a new machine (my fourth install, I think),
9 and it all went well---better than ever! I am highly pleased...
11 I was even able to connect to a WPA encrypted network with minimal hassle,
12 using excellent instructions availalbe in the docs, forum, and wiki. It
13 went more easily than a year ago.
15 My QUESTION: I connect two machines at home to a wireless router, with my IP
16 number a local one, assigned by the router. Is it reasonable to set this up
17 so my main home machine has the same IP number always, so I can set up other
18 machines to print over the local wireless net?
20 ASIDE: I can't speak too highly of the solidity of the install. Maybe
21 partly because I now understand the Gentoo system better, I have not had to
22 ask many questions. When something troubles, it is easier to figure out
23 why. I don't want to bog down in a discussion of other distros and the
24 fiddling that led to nowhere; suffice it to say, Gentoo just works, for me,
25 as long as I am willing to put in the time, and my other efforts were less
26 satisfactory.
28 Thank you!
