    0, I never installed Gentoo since I never had a need for it.

    What's the appeal of gentoo besides memes?

      If done properly, it can run smoothly with the hardware.

      It does indeed run more smoothly and using different schedulers is actually somewhat supported for an even smoother experience and it does use less resources when properly configured but far more storage.

      But that's not the real benefit, the real benefit is in my opinion the ability to seamlessly apply custom patches that install automatically without having to do it manually each time. A lot of software I run has been patched by me, often in extremely trivial ways, like that on my system cp was --reflink=auto 3 years before it became standard everywhere, or that rm on my system when connected to the stdin always prompts for confirmation when removing more than 3 files, or that WINE is patched to respect the RESOURCE_NAME environment variable convention.

      All these small changes would be annoying to have to manually apply on every update on most other systems.

      Okay Holup I was installing freebsd last night and it hung on the clock every time. when I went back onto the windows partition the clock time was showing the wrong time; maybe not the wrong time for someone but not my local time. Am I moronic? I tried booting in safe mode and in single user mode and after like 2 hours I gave up and installed Debian.

        Windows does some weird shit with the clocks that breaks the time when you try to dual boot. Iirc there's a fix out there, but the real solution is to simply uninstall windows and go 100% Linux or BSD

        There is a strange difference between ``system clock'' and ''local time''.

      On 1980s Macintosh computers you just dragged and dropped 'Finder' and 'System' into your floppy drive and it was installed.

    Reinstall it?
    No, I just had to reboot like 4 times before the kernel worked, needed to enable more things in it.

    I also had to reboot several times once I converted my init proces to a Makefile.
    Yes, I boot with parallelism written in make.

    1. I didn't knew I was just missing to install dhchpd to make internet werk, so I just threw the whole install into the trash.

    I installed it (and a DE, browser, etc.) a few years ago on my first try without any knowledge of Linux. If you can follow instructions, then it should be easy.

    I tried to use it as a learning experience, so while following the handbook, I read each section carefully--especially about the things I didn't know or understand.

      Up till the kernel part when I did it.
      It really does not explain well how to configure a kernel and how could it, it really depends on one's hardware.
      After several tries one simply picks up how to configure Linux and what it needs and what to look out for but the explanations of it are really basic.

        >Up till the kernel
        That part is definitely the hardest. I didn't configure my kernel the first time; I used genkernel. Once I got everything working, then I started messing with it. I stopped using Gentoo after that, and I doubt I'll ever use it again as I'd rather spend my time in different ways.

        I got stuck on that part lmao. I've seen some trannies install it skipping the kernel config, but i didn't understand shit
