Tux Machines (TM)-specific
apaku.wordpress: As I’m pretty familiar with setting up debian nowadays I thought a change would be cool, so I decided to give Gentoo a shot.
kloeri.livejournal: So... I think this has been coming ever since I retired as a Gentoo Developer. I've become more and more happy about that decision so I finally took the plunge a couple of weeks ago and removed Gentoo from my laptop.
dsd’s weblog: In addition to all the upstream changes, gentoo-sources-2.6.23 (which will be in portage very soon) has some Gentoo-specific feature changes worth noting:
futurepages.net: This is the second part of the Gentoo Tutorials. In the first section “Minimal Gentoo Installation” we have built a fresh Gentoo system using the minimal install disk and downloading the stages/ports and building the kernel. This left us with a bare Gentoo OS. In this second Gentoo Tutorial we are going to customize and add different software to the system.
moving-innovations.com/blog: When the server arrived earlier this week I thought it’d be a matter of simply popping in a Gentoo minimal install CD, running through the installation steps, and be done with it. So I popped in the CD. Rebooted the machine. Nothing happened.
This tutorial shows how to set up a Gentoo 2007.0 based server that offers all services needed by ISPs and hosters: Apache web server (SSL-capable), Postfix mail server with SMTP-AUTH and TLS, BIND DNS server, Proftpd FTP server, MySQL server, Courier POP3/IMAP, Quota, Firewall, etc.
pendrivelinux.com: In the following USB Gentoo tutorial will cover how to install, boot and run Gentoo 2007.0 from a USB device using Windows. Gentoo is a popular Linux version named after the Gentoo Penguin.
gentoo.org: The database will be shutdown and backed up, final consistency checks will be performed, and pending the unforseen, the conversion to full UTF-8 support is the last step. The forums will be shutdown during this time. This activity is scheduled to start on 2007-09-08.
theopensourceactivist: Sabayon is considered ‘close’ to Gentoo, but not necessarily ‘very close’ (atleast in my view). The reason for this is because Sabayon uses its own versions of some pretty major packages.
The Gentoo Infrastructure team has completed its analysis of the recent exploitation attempts as well as the majority of the cleanup. The forensic analysis has revealed that while attempts were made, none were successful in compromising the machine nor in disclosing private information.
broeksema.dev: Yesterday was the big day. After a package update of my Gentoo system, which took way too long anyway, libexpat seemed to get an update also. What's the deal?
On August 7, 2007, bannedit reported bug 187971 regarding a possible command injection vulnerability within http://packages.gentoo.org. The Infrastructure team verified the vulnerability and the server was immediately taken down to prevent further exploitation and to allow for forensic analysis.
Daniel Robbins: Over the last few days, I've taken a good hard look at performance issues related to Sabayon and Gentoo. Several people have noted that Sabayon seems slow, so I tested out 3.4e.
wilmingtonstar.com: entil, with the help of his partner, investor, chairman and fellow Frenchman Alain Rossmann, has developed a low-cost, hassle-free, environmentally-correct PC. The Zonbox uses the Gentoo version of Linux as the core of its operating system.
daniel robbins: Well, for the past several days I've been pretty pumped about the future of Gentoo. There seems to be a great interest among the larger Gentoo community.
