New Kernel Traffic out (#163)
My Gentoo install at school is going pretty well (certainly a lot faster than the install at home over my 56K dialup link). A few niggles about Gentoo:
- When building packages it downloads them, then builds them. It could save a lot of time if it could download the next packages while building the current one
- It doesn't actually build everything from source because when I use GCC optimisations that break the calling conventions (e.g. regparam) it segfaults - so something binary is being linked in there
- Vlock doesn't install a pam file so if you vlock -a it permanently locks everything
In light of the last point I should remember Ctrl-SysRq-K is the one to kill the current terminal's processes. It's called SAK thou, which is why I missed it today (System Attention Key).
