Hey there

I'm seriously disappointed. I had gentoo installed and used a few times in the past. Recently I felt like installing it again. Installation was never really the easiest thing as there are just too many small things that can go wrong however with the documentation it was always possible to get to a result in reasonable time.

But with the recent installation I'm really annoyed. It's not even possible to just have genkernel compile you a "standard" kernel so that you can move on and concentrate on details later... no it fails because there's some wifi and radeon u-code stuff it tries to load, which is of course not magically there (not mentioned in handbook). In addition there's this stage 3 issues... standard kernel compression is set to value which is not supported without installing an additional package...

In a nutshell. Seriously disappointed of what gentoo became... I'm not expecting a 10minute unattended installation like ubuntu but there should be a way to install it in a reasonable time without having to search the forums for this and that bug. :?

No sense complaining here - you seem to have figured things out. File bug reports and patches and help make it better!

Not yet everything - I might just move on to a distro that works...

Moved from Installing Gentoo to Gentoo Chat as it's about Gentoo itself and not a support question.
