I've come up with what I think I want to use for USE :). Anyone see any potentail problems or have any suggestions?
I'm not on a laptop, so I added -pcmcia and nocardbus.

My potential settings:
Quote:
USE="-arts -kde -nls -pcmcia -postgres aalib avi dvd encode fbcon jpeg
nocardbus oggvorbis opengl oss perl png python quicktime qt sdl
truetype xml xml2 mpeg mmx"


From the USE How-To:
Quote:
Code listing 1, 1.1a USE settings:
USE="xv slang readline gpm berkdb mmx 3dnow gdbm tcpd pam libwww ssl nls
mitshm arts lame perl python esd gif imlib sdl oggvorbis gnome gtk X qt
kde motif opengl avi png tiff gif"

Quote:
Code listing 3, Example settings:
USE="-gnome -kde qt -arts -nls python perl oggvorbis opengl sdl
-postgres jpeg png truetype xml xml2 dvd avi aalib mpeg encode fbcon
mmx"

there's a lot more ;-),
check the "USE manual" (linked from the gentoo.org home)
e.g. you might want to add sse if you have an intel pIII-pIV

I'll give that a shot, but I would think duplicating settings would have no effect.
