did you edit your make.conf or use the variable ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="x86" ? portage maintainers may have masked it because of its potential for being buggy or its limited testing in the linux world or the may not have bothered making an ebuild for it because of limited demand from happy gentooers

Happy to Gentoo users. I am really jealous of them.. What a good system is emerge.. But, Unfortunatelly I am .. I tried lots of times to install Gentoo.. But every time i failed.. I am still waiting to get more experience about linux.. And also making investigation about how to install Gentoo.. I know, Every good thing has a big value to pay..

Anyway, I just wanted to satisfy myself..

Well, I think Gentoo team has the best Installation guide out there. What you need is just time... The first time I installed gentoo, I spent about two days to set it up to the point that I can use X and some simple apps.... The hint to a successful build of gentoo is to rent some movies so that you can kill time with them when the installation guide advises you to

I definitely agree with koyi... Gentoo handbook tells you everything and actually, the installation is not that difficult...

the first time I installed gentoo I had problems because I didnt realize that X was not in the main system by default, and had no idea how to use emerge or even what to install it really does start very minimally and you have to do it all from there but if you have patience it becomes very easy after you sit down and think about it, that relaisation took me quite a while but I think I have been using gentoo for the past 14 or 15 months so its quite natural to me

but doing the above "thinking work" you can learn what is behind something... for example, when you emerge "kinput2"(the japanese input method) you will learn that it needs "freeWnn" or "Canna"(kanji conversion engine), etc to work. You wont even notice about these all if you use a preconfigured distro like Fedora, Mandrake, etc.
