In recent times the Gentoo Linux and its foundation has been plagued with a multitude of problems and times have certainly been challenging for this once popular distribution. It's already July and we are now finally seeing Gentoo's first official release of the year. In this article we are taking a brief look at Gentoo Linux 2008.0 and its changes.
Some of the packages that are updated with Gentoo Linux 2008.0 are the Linux 2.6.24 kernel, X Server 1.3.0, GCC 4.1.2, glibc 2.6.1, Xfce 4.4.2, and Portage 184.108.40.206. Gentoo Linux 2007.0 had shipped with the Linux 2.6.19 kernel, and of course, in that year and a half since its release there are many new drivers and an arsenal of other improvements to the kernel since that time.
