However, if you're into tinkering with your computer a lot, you may want to try Gentoo Linux. It requires you to compile the whole system from the ground-up, but you'll sure end up with a system that works just the way you want.

Actually it looks like Gentoo is moving away from that sort of compile the whole thing on the first run sort of install. When I installed Gentoo there were three types:

Level 1: Compile from the ground up.
Level 2: Practically compile from the ground up Tongue Wink
Level 3: Get a stable binary, get it installed (then let your computer spend 4 days recompiling the entire system)

Now they're pretty much saying to go the level 3 route.

imo when you don't choose the stage 1 or 2 route you loose many advantages of gentoo. not that i like gentoo, in fact i sort of hate it now, i did like it for a time though.

Setrodox, the principles are different.

With a stage 1/2 install you build your system from the ground up and configure it as you go.
With a stage 3 install you take a semi-prebuilt system (you still compile the kernel from source) and then you tweak the system after it's running... so you use the stage 3 as a bit of a crutch.

well, tweaking it after installing from stage 3 takes longer than just installing from 1 or 2, that's what i meant with my post.

Hm, I don't know if that's true or not... I mean you just have to set your use flags and then rebuild the entire system, which just takes some careful text editing followed by one command and a weekend to let it compile Smiley

I like the idea since doing a stage on install (doing a stage two install is kinda silly since I think you enter one less command than a stage 1 Tongue) sine there's a LOT less to screw up until AFTER you've got the system up Cheesy

well, maybe it's just because i'm lazy, i don't want to install and THEN rebuild, but do it right from the beginning. though i don't think i'll ever use a source based distribution again, and from those i liked sourcemage much better than gentoo, but that's just personal preference.  Grin
