Hello,

During the install of Gentoo on my Mac Mini G4, I selected 'server'. Everytime I emerge a packet now, I get following message:

Code:
 * This profile has not been tested thoroughly and is not considered to be
 * a supported server profile at this time.  For a supported server
 * profile, please check the Hardened project (http://hardened.gentoo.org).
 * This profile is merely a convenience for people who require a more
 * minimal profile, yet are unable to use hardened due to restrictions in
 * the software being used on the server. This profile should also be used
 * if you require GCC 4.1 or Glibc 2.4 support. If you don't know if this
 * applies to you, then it doesn't and you should probably be using
 * Hardened, instead.


Is server not supported? Should I use hardened instead on Mac Mini G4 for a simple server install?

yes, this profile is unsupported and its telling you to use the hardened profile instead in case you want to setup a box thats mainly going to function as a server.

Id say if the box isnt going to be connected to the internet _at all_, hardened surely isnt what you are looking for and i would just use a basic profile.
And even if the box is serving apache or bind or whatever it might be overkill too, it really depends on what you are planning to do.

cheers
