Another Linux Blog

Posted 08-21-2008 at 06:14 PM by PaladinOfKaos

Since this blog comes with my LQ account, I think I'll use it to blog about my linux experiences.

I recently finished getting Gentoo (more or less) set up on an IBM T40 laptop. I'm using KDE 4.1 on it, and it runs pretty smoothly, given how old the hardware is.

I just updated to GCC 4.3 on that machine, which is exciting for no real good reason. GCC 4.2 isn't even listed as stable yet in Gentoo, but I wanted a more recent version that has better P6 optimization (the pentium-m in my thinkpad sits between the Pentium III and the Core 2).

My desktop is currently running Ubuntu, but I plan on bringing that back to Gentoo as soon as I upgrade. I'll be getting a kentsfield soon, and the only way to optimize for that is with GCC 4.3.
