Farewell Gentoo, hello openSuse

SUSE

Yesterday was the big day. After a package update of my Gentoo system, which took way too long anyway, libexpat seemed to get an update also. What's the deal?

I see you think. Well that there where around 35 packages which linked to it and needed to get recompiled. *Sigh* and that after hours of waiting to get the update finished. So I started revdep-rebuild and wanted to do some development underwhile. Not possible! about every app I needed was linked to that lib so i had to wait while my system was completly unusable for that time.

Ok that was it.

Drifting away from Gentoo made me think about it.
