    thats great news! but he first time i did anything major with linux, i left out a critical part of the instructions. i left out "make modules" when i compiled my first kernel.

    id still love to try gentoo though

    The guy just likes work , simple as that,

    http://download.kde.org/binarydownlo...lackware/10.2/

    "no 3.5 packages"

    people who refuse to use slackware the way its designed to be used and an example is compiling KDE 3.5 because you think the time wasted on compiling it will help you learn gentoo, because apparently theres a lot of compiling in gentoo,

    why not just run gentoo? gentoo can use binary packages too.


    it just sounds like weedmans time is free, if he were administrating a network of computers I really doubt he'd bother 'compiling kde 3.5 on each machine because NO slackware packages exist'

    what a waste of time, you want to learn gentoo, install it and run gentoo.

    tbh you just waste even more time in gentoo compiling, have fun!

    What you have decided to tackle has a vast number of potential roadblocks, and the information you have provided is so sketchy it is all but impossible to troubleshoot which point(s) of failure you have encountered.

    if you downloaded KDE why can't you download the gentoo stage 1 install?

    sorry man, people are going to get worked up if you tell them packages exist 3 times and then they try compile it anyway because they think compiling big things will help them understand gentoo more, simply not true.

    gentoo would tank on that SX25 too whereas slackware would be fine.

    i thought the stage 1 install would be bigger than 120mb + that would only give me the basics. unless i used the very same kde which i am trying to compile on slackware... which sounds like an idea.

    how much longer does a stage 1 install take from a stage 3 install?
    also ive forgotten how much more compiling i need to do in s1 from s3.

    thanks immensly for that post kern
