Gentoo I've been wanting to try Gentoo for some time, but always had to roll my eyes at the pages and pages of installation instructions. This time, however, I rolled up my sleeves and buckled down. Minutes later, I was on my way.

Don't get me wrong Slackware is a great distribution. I just don't see how you had a hard time with the documentation. Did you read it? I everything is laid out in categories and is very clear and if its not in the DOCS you go to the forum. As for the way to unmerge a package the command is "emerge -C package". If you looked at the man page you would find this out. I have installed Gentoo numerous times and never had these problems even on the first go round back before Gentoo 1.4. RTFM First!!
