            There’s many steps to remember when you have to first create your building environment before you can compile all the basic components for your own distro, and it’s always good when you manually lookup configure and compile your dependencies, I know it’s all excuses for not memorising the steps but there you go.

        I don’t think the bank will accept “I need to install Firefox” as the reason for a loan to pay my electricity bill.

        Joking aside though, Gentoo was a great experience for me to learn how Linux actually works.

          I never got it running, but I definitely learned some things. I need to try it again someday when I have a lot of free time and a spare laptop.
