--Danielv (talk) 16:14, November 29, 2015 (UTC) I don't really want to use a ready-made Funtoo that would be similar to Sabayon, as I would miss out on learning.

I have freed up a few hard drives, so I have a few Linux things I want to try. I am happy to see that Mr. Robbins continues to improve Funtoo through great new ideas. I am confident that this is the right approach.

--Danielv (talk) 15:07, September 26, 2015 (UTC) I really like the Funtoo Linux way of doing things, the community is great. I see lots of strengths in Funtoo Linux. I need to study the main configuration options so I can really get the most benefit from it. I had run into issues installing software (I, for the most part, use really old, slow computers) and time was a factor for me, so I got away from it, although I didn't want to stop using Funtoo. Any shortcomings are my own. I don't think I've ever seen faster, better, more polite and professional maintenance and follow-up than from Daniel Robbins. I was considering using Sabayon Linux. I don't like change, but I think that if I can get my processes together for setting up and running Funtoo Linux, I can get far better performance from my computers, and I don't mind taking the time to compile software, as long as I feel I am on the right track. I would like to know how to best get myself up to speed on getting the most out of Funtoo setup/optimization... I wish there were a way to take advantage of Funtoo through a Sabayon-like type of ready-built distro... If it were just me, sure, I can take my time and take as long as I want with setting up a Linux distro... my goal is to help get people to using Linux, and community education... it behooves me to be able to set up a Linux computer in a few hours so i can devote time to adding educational software and training others. I suppose I could do a build and use partimage, and go from there. --Danielv (talk) 12:53, July 8, 2015 (UTC)

re: kernels

# emerge -av app-portage/eix


To see available kernel packages, I do this command for a brief listing

# eix -# sys-kernel/
sys-kernel/alt-sources
sys-kernel/aufs-sources
sys-kernel/better-initramfs-bin
sys-kernel/bliss-initramfs
sys-kernel/bliss-kernel
sys-kernel/centos7plus-sources
sys-kernel/ck-sources
sys-kernel/cryptodev
sys-kernel/debian-sources

sys-kernel/vanilla-sources
sys-kernel/vserver-sourcesIdeas?
sys-kernel/xbox-sources
sys-kernel/zen-sources

or for more detail

# eix -c sys-kernel/


This command puts out lots of content to the screen, and it has color...

# eix -A sys-kernel/


Let's say you want to look at sys-kernel/genkernel

# eix sys-kernel/genkernel/
