Well. It was fun as long as it lasted. I guess I won't be around the Gentoo IRC channels anymore.

"Gentoo IRC presence moving to Libera Chat"


"The Gentoo Distribution Kernel project is excited to announce that our new Linux Kernel packages are ready for a wide audience! The project aims to create a better Linux Kernel maintenance experience by providing ebuilds that can be used to configure, compile, and install a kernel entirely through the package manager as well as prebuilt binary kernels."


I like how verbose emerge in Gentoo is. Here's an example message it left me when I recently updated Cronie:

>* Messages for package sys-process/cronie-1.5.5:
>* You should restart cronie daemon or else you might experience segfaults
>* or cronie not working reliably anymore.

I made a few extra decals just in case I end up with a new computer.

And in case you missed the first decal, this is where I installed it: hunden.linuxkompis.se/2020/03/

"Portage 3.0.0 released, with up to 50-60% faster dependency resolution (and dropping Python 2.7 support)"


A lot of people talk about Arch Linux having the best repository of all Linux based operating system.

Just for fun, let's compare some stats with Gentoo.

Total packages:

G: 31 953

What do you like about Gentoo?

I'm asking because I'm writing a post about why I like Gentoo myself. I'm not that comfortable when it comes to writing anything but documentation, but at least I try.
