should I set USE flags when doing install?
I just wondered if I should set all my predicted USE flags while I'm doing the live cd install. I already set them then i rean the command
emerge --update --deep --newuse world
i set the flags in /etc/make.conf
this is taking a very long time. I just wondering if this is the appropriate time to do this because it looks likes its going to take all day. I used flags like
java, gnome, flac etc.....
or should i do this after the install.
Thanks, I'm trying.

Setting the USE variable and then compiling is the best solution. To not set use then re-merge with the new USE settings requires you to compile some things twice.
The time this takes will depend on your system specs. It usually takes around 8 hours or so (on a decent machine) to build your system. A stage1 install isn't something that you can have in an hour or so."Time is an illusion. Lunchtime, doubly so."

i waited it out and hopefully will be glad that i did.
i see that you answer a lot of questions which is awesome and thanks is advance for any help. I was wondering if you have any idea why when I reboot the grub loader freezes on vstab. I've tried twice and gotten the same holdup.
