Systemtrash Episode 004: Gentoo 2006.0

Filed under
Gentoo

Among other things their site mentions the following:
'We produce Gentoo Linux, a special flavor of Linux that can be automatically optimized and customized for just about any application or need. Extreme performance, configurability and a top-notch user and developer community are all hallmarks of the Gentoo experience.'

... sounds serious.

I'm just now getting around to watching their latest video. I'm not very far into it, but I didn't think it was gonna go too well for gentoo if it only got a 2 out of 10. But already I have to comment:

I don't think I was pissed. I don't get mad. I get even! lol j/k

Actually, all I said to them was:

Dimi did a fairly good job with PCLinuxOS, but I think a link to my site as your reference for the background material on Texstar and PCLOS would have been in order. It's only common courtesy.

As for his comments about my slow site - yeah, I know. It's not linux or drupals fault. It's bellsouth's business dsl up-pipe. And I think he was visiting and commenting right when a link to my kororaa xgl story was on the front page of digg. Sorry.

Fedora: The Latest

  • New "remi-php71" repository
  • PHP on the road to the 7.1.0 release
  • First round of Fedora 24 Updated Lives now available. (torrents expected later this week)
    As noted by my colleague on his blog the first round of F24 Updated Lives are now available and carry the date 20160720, Also as mentioned last week on his blog F23 Respins are not going to be actively made, however we and the rest of the volunteer team will field off-off requests as time and resources permit. We are considering a new/second tracker for the Updated Spins but as of today there are only .ISO files available at https://alt.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/live-respins [shortlink] F24 Live-Respins . The F24 respins carry the 4.6.4-200 Kernel and roughly ~500M of updates since the Gold ISOs were released just 5 weeks ago. (some ISOs have more updates, some less)
