I built all the way through. But, I think I could have stopped at certain points if needed. It does take a long time. I read a few people talking about how it took 24 hours for kde. I compiled all the kde stuff in 6 hours on my box (the only way I can get the wife to use it). I had a basic working system with the base stuff (to a command line) and then X & fluxbox in a total of like 7 hours. After that, it's all just picking and choosing what you would like to have. The base in maybe 3.5 on my hardware, 3.5 more for X and a short bit for flux. You should be able to quit after the base anyway.

Huh. Okay - it'd take me a lot longer - just a 1.1GHz Athlon and 512MB of PC133 SDRAM but as long as I can get the base in several hours one day and X in several hours the next, say, that's reasonable. But KDE's not an issue and Flux shouldn't be any problem - just built that from CVS today in no time. Cool. I've got a 3-stage tarball of 1.4 I downloaded quite awhile ago - if it'd be okay to use that, I'll give it a go soon. If not, I'll download whatever's current and give that a go. Thanks for the info.

No prob. You'll just have to do 'emerge sync' or something of the like to update the tree from your cd's. No need to download again.

Yeah, I was thinking there was some kind of update even if I was behind. I don't know the link you mean - I searched here and came up with these two - don't know if those are it or not.

Thanks. I was editing to say I found it, but then got "dropped" from the site somehow?

I voted for Opera. A proprietary app. I feel so dirty but using Opera feels so good...

Yes, where is Internet Explorer? Indeed this is a Linux forum but in order to have an accurate vote all major browsers should be included.

I run all of my major server aps from Linux machines but my own desktop machine is generally ALWAYS Windows XP Pro. When I find something I like I just cut the link from Internet Explorer then open up an SSH session to a linux box and then I use lynx and just paste the URL in there and then I just download and install the package, etc... so my primary browser in my case when I work with Linux is still Internet Explorer...

I guess that the heading for this thread should read "Linux Browser of the Year"...

That's my two cents worth anyway...

I'm afraid that firebird is doomed to be the superior browser of the future...

It is the only browser that combines blazing speed, just the features you need, tabbed browsing, and powerful customizing tools.

And of course it's open source
