[User Picture]05:20 pm - Also... VPNs are officially a pain in the ass under 64-bit.
After trying in vain for a couple months to get the VPN to work's Cisco 5500 working under Gentoo, I had a reason to nuke-and-pave my install. So I decided to try Ubuntu since I'd heard it 'just works' there. That part was, mercifully at least, true. And yes, installing packages in seconds instead of minutes was nice to be able to just dump thirty packages.

But I've had to manually tweak and repair more files under Ubuntu 8.10 to correct fuck-ups by Ubuntu's updater, and even had it corrupt my filesystem just using the reboot menu option, that I officially don't trust it any further than I can throw it. Get back here, Gentoo! Time to just knuckle down and set up a proper CHRooted 32-bit and no-multilib 64-bit install this time... *starts backing up all the Steam games to avoid re-downloading them for once*5 commentsLeave a comment
