i am currently in the middle of my gentoo install from stage three, but now that i understand how linux works i understand what i am doing in the install and it is far better, i might switch over to gentoo because i am impressed with how it works, i love the portage, last time i dont think i had my make.conf file edited properly, and i was stupid lol. now it seems very good. ill use it some more and tell you what i think of it more, because i am still, only in the installation.
oh i am loving portage now that i look through it, and when i say love, i mean love. i think this might be the end of my warshipping slackware because OMG this is heaven and its not even done installing yet , i just want to get down to things and start installing like crazy. , i totally love that it downloads then does a source install for you, i seriously think that this with an easier installer and frontend to emerge could easily beat out windows for ease of install.
ok ok ok, i got everything working, i really disliked metalog though, so i did this.
emerge -u msyslog
rc-update del metalog default
rc-update add msyslog default
it got an error, so i did a whereis metalog and deleated everything that had to do with metalog, after than rc-update add msyslog default had no errors but when i bootup i get a error that has something to do with metalog, the same error that i got when i did the rc-update add msyslog default.
