Gentoo kde updating applications

For the last 2 years I have been successfully replacing Microsoft Windows Servers with GNU/Linux servers.

As a result, my work load has dropped dramatically, even when the number of servers that I manage has tripled !

Gentoo Wiki Community made documentation Flameeyes's Unofficial ebuilds has unofficial ebuilds for Gentoo.

Well, at first I tried various other Distros before I came to use Gentoo, however all of them did not stand up to what I wanted.

Some had poor performance, some did not have all the programs that I would be needing, all of them had to be updated to play MP3s and DVDs, and almost all of them needed to be upgraded every 6-9 months.

This distribution is best suited for experienced users and requires you to be able to hand edit configuration files using a text editor.

Final Thoughts For anyone looking for a down to basics, Ubuntu-like (in terms of ease of install and use), rolling release distribution I would highly recommend Sabayon.

For someone looking for something a bit more polished or extremely user friendly, perhaps you should look elsewhere.

Community Q&A Gentoo comes with X11R6, the Xorg server 6.8 series.

However, with its release, Gentoo is migrating to Xorg 7.0.

Xorg 7 is fundamentally different because its previous few packages have now been much split to form around 100 new packages which constitute the server.

This has the advantage that small parts of the server can now be upgraded singly without having to recompile larger packages.

After doing some research I discovered a number of possible candidates but quick narrowed it down based on the following reasons: Experience running Sabayon Sabayon seems to take a change-little approach to packaging applications and the desktop environment. Simply that if you install the GNOME, KDE or Xfce versions you will get them how the developers intended – there are very few after-market modifications done by the Sabayon team.
