So, how do you all feel about source based distributions, like Gentoo/Funtoo? Pic related is me doing an install of Funtoo in VirtualBox. Creating this thread to pass the time.

Happy now, Torrential?

Aren't all distro's source based ?

>>569
No. Most distributions use binary packages because they're much quicker. However, building from source means that the software can be optimized for your computer, leading to performance gains. Gentoo (and it's flavor Funtoo, I wouldn't really call it something based on Gentoo because so much is the same) are the most prominent examples.

What about when you upgrade, or just replace a component that burned up? Seems like a lot of wasted time if it's not for a server or enterprise machine that never changes hardware.

This has been my concern, too. I imagine you'd have to go through and change all your use flags followed by updating everything. Most likely a huge pain in the ass.

Kind of out of topic, but I'll answer anyway:
If you mean to ask 'how to hex edit on linux', then you just need to download some random hex editor. Bless or ghex, one of those two should do. If you want to concatenate files, you use cat, in this fashion 'cat file1 file2 >> newfile'.

Be Ian Murdoch.

You love your wife so much you name the masterpiece of your life after your names. Debra + Ian = Debian.

Debian.

After 15 years she leaves you taking with her half of your money and a chunk of your heart. Debian - Debra = Ian?

Debian.

She found a new lover immediately but after 6 years you still can't get over the divorce. You are alone. Worse of all every day at work you hear about 'Debian' and it reminds you of her.

Debian debian debian.

Then "women in open source" start telling you everything is white-men's fault. Why aren't you doing anything for women in tech? Aren't you ashamed of your privilege you fucking cis-scum? And even with all your privilege you are alone.

It's really a sad day for computing as a whole. A lot of people think, "Oh, he did Linux stuff. nothing of value is lost" not realizing that a large portion of technology uses, or is a fork of, his work on Debian. It's also not all he did either. It's really sad. Hopefully more details emerge so that we know if he was suffering from depression or was murdered.

Either way, it's sad.

This album I can't speak highly enough of, I know I'm venturing more and more into metal with each post but whatever. The album "Nothing but the Whole" by Emptiness is a crushing and odd mix of Death, Black, and Doom all in one. The album's lyrics seem to be very personal to the writer, and seem to be dialogue between their own mind.

The album starts out slow, with the song "Go and Hope", it's repetitive droning riffs and keyboards set the mood of pessimism that'll be present throughout the whole album. The guitar tones are muddy yet clear, and have just enough bass to fit perfectly. The growled vocals teeter on the line between a powerful grunt and a whisper, adding to the atmosphere. The title track, Nothing but the Whole, which is the second song on the album, continues this atmosphere previously set forth by the doom-ridden song before it. At this point, more Death influences call throughout the darkness. The song is hard hitting at points, and transitions into parts that almost give off a hopeful feel, then delve back into the deep black that is the real atmosphere. Behind the Curtain starts off quite a bit faster than the previous too, with a fast paced, tremolo picked riff which changes into a bouncy sounding doom-inspired riff, and then transfers to a very death-inspired riff seamlessly. The song transitions from a more hateful atmosphere into a very pessimistic atmosphere again, and then into a harder riff, but still continuing that atmosphere. The fourth track, All is Known, is the longest track on the album at 8 minutes and 53 seconds, and is a beast of it's own. Transitioning from hopeful to pessimistic over and over, when the middle of the song reaches, it becomes very odd to say the least and making you feel like you don't know what they're going to pull next. The drums transition perfectly throughout this whole song, sometimes it's even hard to tell that they transitioned. The fifth track, Tale of a Burning Man, starts out with a very black inspired riff that's very hard hitting and evil. A large portion of this song is fast, and might be the fastest paced song on the album. The Past is Death, the 6th title on the album, slows down significantly and is filled with dark and hard-hitting riffage, the song is also more evil in atmosphere than the rest. And that's really all I can say about that track heh, but it's still amazing. The final track on the album, Lowland, is exactly what it is, low. The atmosphere in this track is a lot moPost too long.
