There are quite a few packages that need local patches to work correctly, but at least with gentoo you can apply local patches in a sane way. :-)

make.conf settings:
Code: Select all
CFLAGS="-O2 -pipe -mcpu=e5500 -mno-altivec"
CXXFLAGS="${CFLAGS}"
CHOST="powerpc64-unknown-linux-gnu"
USE="bindist -altivec"
VIDEO_CARDS="radeon radeonsi"


Hi Marcus,

Many thanks for reporting! Is Gentoo faster than the other Linux distributions? In my point of view it must be faster because of the CFLAGS.

Thanks,
Christian

I haven't really compared the performance, all I can say for sure is that upgrading is slower since you have to compile everything yourself. :-)
The reason I use it is for the flexibility it brings.

Could you please post a screenshot of your Gentoo desktop? Which window manager do you use?

Sure. I'm using Sawfish with the Crux theme. The desktop environment is XFCE4.
