    Arch? I don't know, but it isn't that bad, try reinstalling Gentoo a couple of times, I started doing that when kde+OpenOffice+firefox took about a week of compiling. Be glad you're learning from mistakes now instead of half a year down the line when you have a bunch of data and customization to restore.

    @irene yeah, at least by now they are. I think firefox was back then as well, but at the time I really wanted to do it the *right* way. Especially a monster like firefox should damn well use all those cflags to squeeze every last drop of performance out of the machine. Nowadays I use arch on desktop and Gentoo on servers, much saner setup.

    I feel your pain. I once spent 12 hours wiping and reinstalling Arch. Network card problems, graphics problems, you name it. Finally got everything working, then bricked it trying to add a splash screen during startup 😂

    @irene why not? Gentoo is one of the most consistent and best documented distros. Nowadays the arch wiki is even better, but things like webapp-config, heavily documented configuration files and consistent placement placement of stuff is a huge advantage for me. I rarely have to guess if something is in /etc, /etc/conf.d, /var/lib, /var/run, /use/share or wherever, since it's the same for almost all packages. Arch tries to keep everything vanilla and therefore stuff ends up all over the filesystem, wherever some dev thought it would be a good idea to dump. Oh and no apt-config which f's up your config files on updates. It's actually a very good system, just not very corporate xD
