Suggestions eh? Well... depends what you wanna do. :p I prefer using GTK software (instead of QT software) as... uhm.. I dunno. I just do ;) But I mean, its up to you.

emerge whatever

emerge unmerge whatever

Try it and if you don't like it, dump it :)

I'm sticking with Debian 3.0r0, nothing beats apt-get :p

I like the idea of it compiling during install, but damn ifconfig says my gateway is not a gateway.

Slightly OT: How's your experience with 3.0? I'm just interested as I havn't heard much on it.

trying things out..

attempting to get sound to work, we'll see if that turns out.

i did a emerge amsn

i used amsn in mandrake.

i get errors though when i try to run it.

if you're using gentoo, would you mind installing it and seeing if you get errors as well ?

thanks :D

I didn't like it myself. It seemed way too buggy for my tastes. (So yes, I have tried it ;) ) I always just used Gaim instead.

Its been running as a webserver in my house. All I can say about it is that its nice and stable. They don't put the latest software in it, rather the latest stable. If you arent looking for eye candy, it is a great quality distro with no BS.

i got rid of endeavour when i installed gnome2 which i'm having NO troubles with :D

now i need a recommendation on window managers to use under gnome. previously i was using enlightenment, which i really like but i cant stand that the left mouse button pulls up a menu when clicking the desktop :

any suggestions of a window manager i should try ?

Aww bugger. You're just luckier than I am :p It crashes on me on startup.

But anyway, it defaults to Metacity which is nice and small and just does it's job. You can also use Sawfish but, at least what I've heard, it's not quite finished (the version that supports gnome2).
