cesma,

My skill set comes from experience. Experience is what you get just after you needed it. :)
I've been playing with computers since I was about 10 years old. That's over 50 years ago now.
At that time I was probably the only one in a school of about 1100 to have computer programming as a hobby.

I also used to work with problem solving on embedded systems. No screen or keyboard.
The methods there apply to Gentoo too.

1. Build on what you know works
2. Keep the problem space small.
3. Develop a theory, then change one thing to test the theory.
3a) Repeat 3 until you understand the problem, modifying the theory when the test results don't support it.

If you change several things at the same time its difficult to unravel the effects.

I'll reccommend Linux Sea. I'm not sure if there is a dead tree version.
The author is a Gentoo developer.


Well thank you so much for your endorsement, i like your approach because it is very similar to the immortal: 'Divide et impera'; I understand what you are talking about and what satisfaction when an efficient solution is found and the 'puzzle' is recomposed.
Thanks for the report and if you could think of any other interesting reading that can help me feel free to report it.
See you to the next unsolvable problem.... :twisted:
