Gentoo Another review of Gentoo 2006.1. In one respect, Gentoo Linux 2006.1 is the same as it's always been, except with newer software on the installation media. Beginning with version 2006.0, though, a graphical environment was added to the live CD along with an installation program that rarely worked properly. The good news is, the installer works reasonably well in Gentoo 2006.1; the bad news is, it's still quicker and easier to install by hand via the command line.

OK then. I agree the installer is BS. A good installer that allows the user to pick where it leaves (crashes) would be OK by me though. As for your problem: I am lucky enough to have NAT routing and good Internet access. So No big deal for me. I noticed that there is no portage snapshot or stages on some of the CDs. What about the DVD you can download? Doesn't it have most of the packages to get you up and running in binary package form? I don't understand fully what your saying. If you don't have a reasonable connection then Gentoo may not be for you.
