I have installed Gentoo today, custom kernel, some good USE flags, etc. I have fell for the meme, but I'm enjoying it.
What'd you do to the kernel?
Gentoo is a complete meme. It genuinely does not have any real advantages over Arch.
>>81048273it doesnt matter what anybody says as long as your enjoying your system anon
I use mine with kde, firefox launches almost the instant I click on it. Never expected such performance on a 10 year old pc. The important part now is to read all the guide on how to update gentoo without breaking it.
>>81048340Arch is also a complete meme, and has no advantages over a minimal Debian install, which is just as minimal except it comes with networking capability and doesn't shit the bed before, during, or any time after install.Debian will always be the "just werks" distro. Arch doesn't even work on most of my computers.
post use flags or lie
>>81048623just wait another 5 months for the update I recieved two weeks ago. God I love apt.
>>81048273I switched to Debian Sid on the weekend from Gentoo and it fucking sucks, but at least my 6 year old machine is not longer unusable for 7 hours because Chromium went from 22.214.171.124.1 to 126.96.36.199.1-r1
>>81048340>over ArchOr any other distro you autistic faggot.
>>81048340Cope archfags say to deny gentoo isn’t the apogee of the cultured linux gentlemen
>>81048273Have fun! Gentoo is a nice distro. I've been using it for 13 years now.Yeah, it's a part time hobby and main tree portage selection quality decreased over the years (at least it's pretty easy to use custom repos now), but it's still a great rolling release distro that can teach you a lot about Linux.
>>81048925No just an hhd. My 12 year old 4TB 2 disk Seagate drive broke this year. Currently using ubuntu with kde as I broke my gentoo install and don't have time to reinstall.
>>81048273thats really not to difficult, now start actually learning how the kernel works, syscalls, processes, etc. That's what really makes an operating system. also pretty quickly youll probably switch over to the superior OpenBased
>>81048659>God I love aptWhat does the package manager have to do with how fast the repositories are updated?Average archtard.
>>81048273People that don't enjoy gentoo either got filtered or never tried it. But i can understand why people move away again to something simply for daily usage, i did myself. Still using it on my old crappy laptop.
>>81049645>people that don't enjoy Gentoo got filtered>btw I don't actually use itabsolute state
I have a feeling that gentoo is like a part time job, even worse than ricing.
>>81049663do you have some kind of reading comprehension?
>>81049707>But i can understand why people move away again to something simply for daily usage, i did myself. Don't give a shit if you have it installed on a laptop that you "use" once a month.
>>81048659pacman is dog water kid. i could never subscribe to just security updates when im in a heavy work season and don't want shit to break on me. archfags will never understand what it's like to not have software crash.
>>81049733i use it daily, on old hardware the performance difference of compiling with custom cflags actually becomes noticeable so it makes sense a lot of sense to use it. I have distcc set up on my desktop to make the compile times acceptable. Because i work online now i embraced debian + nixpkgs again its simpler to use.
>>81048340>arch>devs dont give a shit about user choice>devs dont give a shit about minimalism>devs dont give a shit abour user as a whole>somehow gentoo, thats gives a shit about choices and user freedom has no advantage over archback to r/archlinux you go
>>81050396>buzzwords buzzwordsName 1 (one) meaningful advantage of Gentoo over Arch.
>>81050466>t. didnt even read pic related cus that'd break the r/archlinux bubble
>>81050477>posts a woejackGood thing I didn't waste time reading that.
>>81050497bubble intact, arch linux best!
>>81050531time to go back to watching LUKE SMITH larp about minimalism while on a distro thats inherently bloated by design!
>>81050553arch's motto NEVER was minimalism you fucktard, its KISS
>>81050396There is literally nothing wrong with that email, it's not the fault of the Arch developers if you fell for incorrect memes about it.I don't even use Arch, but boy are you faggots retarded.
>>81048340This, but unironically.Portage is a fucking mess and is getting worse and worse at every update. NixOS is what Gentoo should have been.
>>81049707It's not a matter of reading comprehension, you're just assuming completely made up shit.
>>81050656>>81050616>claim that gentoo doesnt have any advantages over arch>shows gentoo's advantages over arch*quick change subject*>inb4 choices dont matterof course choices dont matter to npcs incapable of making them.
>>81050702You are talking to different people, retard.I guess 20 hours of compiling a day have fried your brain.>of course choices dont matter to npcs incapable of making them.Name 5 relevant choices you made with Gentoo that you couldn't have made with other distributions.Hard mode: no "no poettringware" (since Gentoo ironically works better with systemd and has some of the best packaging for it).
>>81050702>>shows gentoo's advantages over archYou haven't.
>>81050733>>81050737>name choices you made>no, not THAT choice, irrelevant cus I said so
It's a meme for a reason. Gentoo is genuinely good. The negative aspects of the meme come from sour grapes from people who can't use technology that requires reading some documentation.
>>81050835Name 1 (one) meaningful advantage of Gentoo over Arch.
>>81050835gentoo is good but compiling everything is a meme, aint got time for that
>>81050860user choice, like anon >>81050396 already pointed out. you can keep ignoring it, or call choices "irrelevant" as much as you like, but the fact is anyone that cares about having proper user choice will move to gentoo (or k1ss)
>>81050860If you want to compile everything, then it's perfect for you. I used to use Gentoo all the time. I've been using Arch for several years now, because binaries are more convenient on a laptop. You don't have to like how Gentoo does it, but the Gentoo model works and is good. Just maybe not for you.>>81050895Yeah that's why I switched to Arch (like I said above, binaries are much more convenient for a laptop), but I have to be honest: Gentoo was fuckin' sick. The performance was awesome and I had everything exactly the way I wanted it. Arch has "bloat" but it's acceptable. Gentoo is reaaaaally fun and comfy though when you have it all tweaked your way. Moreso than Arch. But Arch is more convenient. So there is your trade-off.Compiling everything is really how a FOSS system should be run in an ideal world.
>>81050969The weakness of Gentoo really shows on a laptop. Using a 5950x on a desktop with Gentoo is peak comfy.
>>81050979custom patcheseasy to install debug symbols and source (latter was issue on other systems for me; being able to step into library calls can save a lot of time when step debugging)USE flags - not just for features that aren't usually included/you want to avoid. Not having every single language in existence in FF's spell check menu is quite convenient too, it's a lot faster when it only contains those that you actually use.openrc
>>81050616>I-I-I-I never pretended arch was minimalist, I-I-I-I swear, I totally don't care about the number of package screenfetch report, trust me guys, I swear
>>81051717Arch has never even pretended to be minimalist. You're literally making shit up and getting mad at it.
>>81051291>custom patchesYou can have those on Arch.>Not having every single language in existence in FF's spell check menu is quite convenient too, it's a lot faster when it only contains those that you actually use.On Arch you only have those spell checking languages which you chose to install.>openrcUseless but you can use Artix if you really want that.
>>81048381this is the truth. OP don't listen to the seething fags telling you it's a meme.
>>81049425This. apt is garbage but for other reasons
>>81049693>I have a feeling that gentoo is like a part time jobthat's the /g/ memes in your head anon. You spend like one day or two setting it up and then you're done. Its just comfy after that. I used to think the same as you, and it was the reason I was hesitant. Once I actually installed it I realized its not bad.
>>81049756Cope. when I was on arch I never had something major break. One time discord broke, but it got fixed the same day. There's valid reasons that someone might not want to use arch, but the>it breaksmeme is not one of them
>>81050396Based developers who don't give a fuck the opinions of it's userbase is why Arch is good.
>>81050466>>freedom>>choice>>minimalism>buzzwordsyep. you're coping. The whole point of arch is>muh minimalism>muh choicebut now you say those are buzzwords?
>>81050819yup. archfags damage controlling
>>81052037>On Arch you only have those spell checking languages which you chose to install.You mean you have to manually install those or?
>>81050466Gentoo is used in production systems
openrc vs systemd choice, crossdev, llvm vs gcc choice, elogind and eudev, USE flags, genkernel vs dracut choice, custom vs prebuilt kernel choice, binpkgs and binary packages vs source packages, overlays, glibc vs musl choice, -O2 vs -O3 vs -Ofast, MuQSS vs BFS choice, good documentation.
