Gentoo We got Linux distributions for geeks (Debian), distros for businessmen (Red Hat), home users (Mandrake) and... Germans (SuSE :). However, there was never before a distribution specifically targetting developers and speed, both at the same time. Enter Gentoo Linux, the fastest loading, fastest-operating Linux distribution to date.

PPP?
by Brent Miszalski on Mon 15th Apr 2002 09:26 UTC

Anyone have any idea how I could setup gentoo with the network as a 56k PPP connection.?

It looks like I can only download packages etc through an ethernet connection, this is a big pain, are they all so ignorant users of broadband that they think everyone has ethernet connections to the net?
pa-leeeease!

I'm really eager to try this distro out, but no ppp is absurd!
