uudruid74 Posted October 28, 2014 Report Share Posted October 28, 2014 OK, before you flame me, I know that Funtoo And Gentoo are "meta" distributions and a binary distro doesn't make sense. But, I would really like to see a Funtoo based distro that could be installed quickly (binary install, sane defaults, sets up portage, etc). Once you change anything (USE flags, etc), then access to any binary packages from the distro would be disallowed. The system should recommend compiling over using binaries for stability. The main goal is just to get the thing installed so you can get to work. The closest I've seen is Sabayon, but they've embraced systemd and they don't even include gcc by default (even though the installer says it does), and the installer is pretty unfriendly. I would want to keep OpenRC, and possibly provide for not installing things like Zeitgist unless the user specifically requests it. There are a lot of people upset over systemd, and if there was a binary alternative, I think funtoo would make a good choice. Just too many people are scared of the long install process. I'd like to do something about pulseaudio, too, but thats another story and another project. Feedback? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
