I have been tinkering with Gentoo for atleast two months on my Toshiba Qosmio g45 laptop off and on. I have to say that I was not succesful at all. Well I got it compiled but could never get X working quite right.
Last night I installed Calculate and it was one of the most painless linux installs I have done yet. Its only been about 24 hours now, but so far everything runs flawless. Its fast and so far seems rock solid.
The only issue I am having is sound and I am sure I will have it figured out by the end of the evening, not a big deal.
