Title: Gentoo is the best Linux distro ever, no lies
Post by: zwakbs3 on March 06, 2022, 09:54:19 AM
Wracked my brain around and around for a whole week to get MATE + Compiz running, not to mention the >16 hrs long compiling time. At least I get to enjoy some nice stuff, might hijack Bedrock into my build though.

I don't have the brain space to get Gentoo working the way I like, or the patience to wait for everything to compile. :( So I stick with Arch (or more specifically Artix) instead.

You can shorten the compiling time up, by using e-profiles with shorter names (say, we have the amd64/17.1 profile and the amd64/17.1/desktop/gnome/systemd profile. You can take the profile with the shorter name (amd64/17.1) to shorten the time, but if you want to use GNOME + SystemD, you'll have to use the profile with the longer name (amd64/17.1/desktop/gnome/systemd), which also means that you'll have to wait for a longer duration of time).
Just read this (https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Handbook:AMD64/Installation/Base#Updating_the_.40world_set), you'll thank me later

also, why not try installing it in a VM? that way, you can learn something new and keep it separate from your stuff
