A lot of drama going around the Gentoo Linux Community these days. Daniel Robbins, the creator of Gentoo, would like some control of Gentoo again. There are a lot of mixed reactions by developers and users. Neither side can really communicate with each other, but oh well, I will still use Gentoo.
Actually I decided to return after being away for a couple of years. FreeBSD, in particular PC-BSD, got me back into geek mode again. I can easily stay up until 3 AM now working on my computer. I really like BSD, should have tried FreeBSD back in 2003 when I picked up the box of FreeBSD CDs at a bookstore. It is intriguing at how similar Gentoo Linux and FreeBSD are. Daniel Robbins did a great job creating a Linux system that ran similar to a BSD system. Portage and Ports are nearly identical. I love emerge in Gentoo, I love portmanager in FreeBSD.
Right now I am updating PC-BSD on my test laptop (yeah , I dumped CentOS, sorry Tracy). I want to get openBravo running on FreeBSD.
My Thinkpad is currently downloading Daniel Robbin’s stage3 tarbell. I will try to get it running Gentoo before I sleep tonight. I plan to use teh XFCE desktop manager instead of KDE which I normally use.
portmanager is currently updating all the ports on my PC-BSD desktop. I need to update all the dependencies as well so I can run Miro again.
If I am lucky, I will sleep around 3 AM.
