Episode 47 Gentoo part 2

Posted in Gentoo at 4:08 pm by ewlabonte

This week I do the second Gentoo episode. I configure and compile the kernel and do some system configuration and finally get to boot into the new gentoo installation. All this takes almost 2 hours. That’s long for a podcast but I wanted to get at least that far by the second episode so that I can cover XWindows installation in the third. I recorded the episode around the time that the mailman comes so you can hear my dog barking in the background for about 10 or 15 minutes. I didn’t realize at the time that the mic would pick it up so clearly. Hopefully it’s not too distracting.

    Yeah, I’m sorry. I’ve been struggling with gentoo a bit. I’ve got it recorded I’ve just got to take the time to sit down and put it together.

    Yes, I can understand the delay. Gentoo is not an easy distro to administer and building it from source from installation to software installation is time consuming.

    Anyway, thanks for the episodes.
