    because apt-get handles your deps for you without making you wait 18 billion fucking hours just to install a program?

    Well... If an hour spent screwing is good; 18 billion of them has to be better, right? :mrgreen:

    Ok, I know you were talking about the compiling thing, but I couldn't resist .

    {Edit} I really dont feel like getting into it.

    {Edit 2} Now every thread is a chance to promote gentoo.

    You know, if you hadn't thus far been able to comprehend why many of us who use gentoo plug it so often, it's because we feel that it a good option. I have never said that anyone elses choice in distro is any better or worse than anyone elses, and I myself have two running mandrake machines and an ancient slackware too. Please try to be a little more mature than to go attacking an entire user group just because they like what they are using, there is no reason for it, and it really tends to made people wonder about your mindset. So show a little respect for peoples choices and they will respect you for it.

    And hell compile times arent that bad when you have 9 computers working away on it (distcc), KDE is up and running in an hour (thats the largest package I ever build)

    rpm is _not_ supposed to 'handle dependancies' only fail when they are not installed.

    debs do handle them though (by way of apt-get)
    Ok well... What good is RPM if it doesn't handle dependancies? Populating the drive with a bunch of useless packages doesn't sound like a good expenditure of time or resources to me

    RPM is great for those people that have no idea how to compile their software from source, or who just can't be bothered spending the time doing it. I remember when I first started in linux, it was all too common having to compile your programs from source. As a complete newb, I had no idea what a shell was, or where the hell the terminal was to actually initiate a compilation. I eventually figured it out, but holy hell, what is annoying or what. Gentoo? What a bloody hard distro to install, and not even worth it if you have a dial-up internet connection (sorry, but the majority of internet users are still using dial-up). I think that it would be great being able to compile the entire system, but you just can't do that with dial-up, because the download time is crazy. Comtux, damn you are good at all things linux, I wish I had the linux knowledge that you have!
