Wanted to try something new, instead...
...I ended up compiling and failing since Monday!
I have tried lots of distros. I have found my favorites and some that I'll never use. I feel good with my Gentoo 2005.0 on my box, but I want to try something different. It's really getting boring to boot the same distro every day.
My story began last Sunday when I decided of all distros that I should try Mandriva, I began downloading the three CD set and about 7 o'clock I finally could install it.
I got disappointed at the first boot. It really wasn't something for me. Maybe because I'm not that much newbie anymore.
So I thought I give Lunar Linux a try. I downloaded that CD too and installed it. It looked very good to me and i began compiling KDE. Failure. Wrong sha1sum. I fixed that after a lot of frustration and the compile continued, then a new fatal error and a new one and three more fatal errors. Three days, four reinstallations and a countless number of errors later I gave up. I decided to try SourceMage a try. I have tried it before and I don't have good experiences about it. But yesterday i installed it and I've also reinstalled it once. Now I'm sitting on my Fedora box and watching interesting make messages on the other box.
I really want to start using SourceMage, but it's really hard when I have to fix errors every five minutes. I want to make a new distro, but i know what you mean about it. If anybody has tried to do something like this, they'll probably understand. Does anybody like the idea of creating (yet) another distro?
