I'm using the gentoo installer to emerge KDE from source, not using the binary package.
I started this process 3 days ago, and it is still going, I haven't seen any error messages, and g++ commands are still scrolling on the screen.
I am compiling with a 200Mhz MMX with 64Mb of ram, I realize this is ancient technology, but really, THREE DAYS, it seems quite extravagent.
My question is,
1) Does compiling usually take this long?
2) How long will it take on my machine?
3) Should I let it continue running in hopes of completion or stop it and try something else?
