meine Gentoo success story

Nach geschätzten 20 Stunden kompilierzeit ist mein hoch optimiertes Gentoo-System nun auf dem Asus Eeepc 1201N lauffähig. Ich habe den Weg zum Erfolg dokumentiert.

Hier meine make.conf (work in progress):

USE="mmx sse sse2 gtk -qt4 -qt3 -qt3-support -xulrunner -kde xvmc threads"
INPUT_DEVICES="keyboard mouse evdev"


source /usr/local/portage/layman/make.conf


  1. jaja, ich erinner mich auch noch gerne an die guten alten gentoo-frickelzeiten. was ein spass wenn einem fertig kompilierten paket mal was fehlte.... and again and again... :D

  2. Hiho,

    also ich meine zu:

    CFLAGS="-march=native -mtune=atom -msse3 -O2 -pipe"

    -march geht über -mtune und -msse3 ist dann mit drin. Könnte mich aber auch irren. Mit "native" wird der maximale Befehlssatz ermittelt.

    man gcc:

    This selects the CPU to tune for at compilation time by determining the
    processor type of the compiling machine. Using -mtune=native will
    produce code optimized for the local machine under the constraints of
    the selected instruction set. Using -march=native will enable all
    instruction subsets supported by the local machine (hence the result
    might not run on different machines).


  3. Its such as you read my mind! You appear to understand so much
    approximately this, such as you wrote the e-book
    in it or something. I believe that you can do with some p.

    that, this is excellent blog. A great read. I'll certainly be back.

This Florida tenting place is best for a family on a spending budget when you consider that it is fairly priced for the Orlando vicinity and yet it is shut to all the principal sights like Disney. A total grain breakfast of previous-fashioned oatmeal with almonds (grind them up to disguise them, if necessary) will keep a kid way a bit longer than orange juice and a bagel.

  28. of course like your web site but you need to test the spelling on several of your
    posts. A number of them are rife with spelling issues
    and I to find it very troublesome to inform the truth however I
