Notes on Gentoo Installation

After two weeks' struggle, I have successfully installed Gentoo, a popular GNU/Linux Distribution. For Records, the obstacles I encountered are listed below. (but I can not remember the solution exactly)

0. failed to emerge gpm when I install the links package. If I recall correctly, it is resolved by install gpm manually

1. I encounter issue when I install glib 2.22.5. no update-desktop-database. which is in dev-util/desktop-file-utils. When I try to emerge it, there is a circular dependency on glib. no solution and I forget How I resolve the problem.

2. later after I install glib, with ~amd64 keyword I can install gpm-1.20.6, but it conflicts with the manually inatalled gpm. I remove the conflicted file and emerge successfully.

3. Failed to emerge tiff. edit packages.keywords to add the following. / ~amd64 I am able to use latest tiff in beta-version, which is unstable and masked out.

4. later atk-1.28.0 failed to emerge. edit /etc/make.conf with the following. FEATURES="-stricter". then emerge successfully with only some complain. with out this seting. the warining from GCC will cause that emerge fail.

5. when I run emerge --update system actually gcc will be upgraded from 4.3.4 to 4.4.3. but it failed because of compilation warning, again. add "-stricter" into Features variable in /etc/make.conf work around it.


6. The installation takes a long time, the KDE itself take more than 10 hours. There is still a lot of improvement space! Anyway, it is nice to be able to use it daily.
