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.

Essentially a five step install and comes in both a minimal and rather packed DVD - includes XGL.

Probably a good way to go to get a feel for gentoo and check out how someone in the know setup the various configuration files.

After, you can always get a gentoo tarball from the Jackass Project and build a slim environment.

The reason i went with Gentoo was purely educational. After a time i checked out LFS and just thought whats the point - Portage more or less automates this!
