Daniel Robbins' Gentoo Stages Update

Filed under
Gentoo

Many of you probably know that I am building up weekly Gentoo stages for x86, i686, athlon-xp, amd64, core64 and core32. Here's an update:

1) For the x86-based stages (x86, i686, athlon-xp,) I had been using a 2007.1 profile which I presumed was going to be used for the upcoming 2007.1 release. It looks like it has been removed from Portage, so I am building using the existing 2007.0 profile. If you are using one of these x86-based stages on your system, you'll find that your /etc/make.profile symlink will no longer point to an active directory. To fix this, you can do one of two things - either go back to the 2007.0 profile or move forward to the 2008.0 profile. Here's how to switch to the 2007.0 profile:

# rm /etc/make.profile
# ln -s /usr/portage/profiles/default-linux/x86/2007.0

The switch to the 2007.0 profile appears to be safe and does not force any downgrades of any key parts of Gentoo (ie. glibc, gcc.)

To use the 2008.0 (currently beta) profile, type:

How to: Install Google Chrome web browser on Ubuntu Linux (and uninstall Firefox)

Ubuntu comes with a lot of quality software pre-installed. Unfortunately, the default web browser, Mozilla Firefox, has been on the decline -- it is slow and clunky. On Linux, Google Chrome is now the top web browser, and it is the best way to experience Adobe Flash content too (if you still need it). Installing Google Chrome on the Linux-based operating system is not totally straightforward. This is unfortunate, as the search-giant's web browser is an important part of having an overall quality experience on Ubuntu. Don't worry, however, as we will help you to both install the wonderful Google Chrome and uninstall the disappointing Mozilla Firefox. Read more
