Gentoo upgrade time estimate
Hi. I'm new to Gentoo, just installed from the '08 cd, and was wondering how to estimate the time it will take to preform "--update world"? I have done "emerge --sync" and emerged the new portage. I've got an Athelon 1.2 ghz processor, have installed xfce as the window manager and that's basically it.
Also, three of the packages listed are blocked. Is it safe to remove the blocking packages so the upgrade can continue? And is it better to do the upgrade without X running?
