Testing Gentoo

Today I'll try out Gentoo Linux. Until now I used Debian on all of my machines. Of course, Debian stable (no more Woody, but now Sarge) is always for me the best choice for servers, but maybe Debian unstable is not the best solution for desktops and notebooks. I usually installed Knoppix on those kinds of machines, to get a preconfigured X and hardware recognition. Of course the initial installation works fine, but all further upgrades seem to break the system more and more, I think because of the customizations Knoppix has in respect to pure Debian.

So, for now, I'll try to install Gentoo and look what it's like. Of course installing Gentoo can last pretty long, because of the compilation processes, so it maybe that I'm offline until Monday or something like that...
