Gentoo "Over the past few days, I discovered that the Gentoo Foundation's charter is in the process of being revoked by the state of New Mexico, apparently due to regular paperwork not being filed by the trustees. What this means is that the Gentoo Foundation is currently hanging for its life by a string, and at any day could cease to exist as an entity. That is the very bad news. The good news is that I was able to talk to Grant Goodyear (trustee) this morning on the phone, and I have confirmed that Grant had received my email about the revocation issue that I sent 2 days ago and that he will be resolving this critical issue in the next couple of days by filing the appropriate paperwork with the state of New Mexico, and this paperwork will also remove me as President of the Foundation."

Xine support is in totem.

media-video/totem-2.16.5 USE="a52 dbus dvd ffmpeg firefox flac hal lirc mad mpeg ogg theora vorbis xv -debug -gnome -nsplugin -nvtv -xine"

He just doesn't want to *learn* Gentoo. This is not a reference to other Distributions, which do not have the large learning curve of Gentoo etc etc. I'm beginning to suspect he hasn't even tried it. He certainly can't use it effectively...and has no interest in building his skills.

Its just another argument because his other posts are so trivial to refute getting more and more difficult to read because he has nothing *real* to say
