Last month I posted an article on my frustration with Gentoo. After I posted the article, I realized that the Compiz Fusion install was actually the culprit in breaking my last Gentoo system. Last night I decided to give Gentoo 2008.0 beta2 a try. All I got to say is wow!
It installed much easier than Gentoo 2008.0 beta1 and is probably one of my fastest Gentoo installs ever. I selected the Minimal CD/Install CD and started a stage 3 build with Daniel Robbin’s stage3 tarbells. In just three hours, I had installed a base Gentoo system with xorg-X11. By the time I woke up this morning, KDE 3.5.9 was already compiled (In the US, I could have done this in a shorter time since the bandwidth there is higher than here in Vietnam).
