Advantages and Disadvantages
The advantages of the Gentoo Minimal Installation CD are:
- It's small, so it can quickly be downloaded.
- It uses GRUB 2.04 to boot, which supports the most modern UEFI systems.
- It's based on Gentoo -- always good :)
- It uses a modern kernel so should support recent hardware.
Some possible downsides for this image are:
- Since it's small, not much is included.
- You are left with
wpa-supplicantfor configuring WiFi (This is not difficult if you know how and we'll cover the steps, but is more complicated than using NetworkManager.)
