Gentoo 2008.1 Release Solutions

Filed under
Gentoo

Gentoo seems to be having problems with .”1” releases – 2007.1 was cancelled and now 2008.1 has been cancelled. The Gentoo project has also announced a desire to move to a more “back to basics approach” where they are doing weekly builds of Gentoo stages.

Good idea. As many of you know, I am already building fresh stages for x86, i686, athlon-xp, pentium4, core32, amd64, core64, ~x86 and ~amd64 as well as OpenVZ templates at http://www.funtoo.org/linux.

Since I’ve been building Gentoo stages for a while, I know that Gentoo’s catalyst tool (the tool that is used for Gentoo releases) is in poor shape – it has been poorly maintained over the years and also does not have any documentation, so it is not really up to the task of building Gentoo releases anymore.
