Been playing with the system a lot today.
Installed portupgrade on it, read up on
ports at Oreillynet. Lots of good stuff
there, especially from Dru Lavigne. Only
problem in the last 24 hours was when I
ran a cvsup for the ports tree. Left it
running when I went to bed, since it's
a long process sometimes. When I got up,
system was froze up. Had to cold boot it,
and naturally it bitched when booting as
to the system not being unmounted properly.
Wasn't too damned much I could do about
On a windows security note, finally found
a damned key logger on my winbox. Gone
now, but it's worrisome. Found a really
good security site with lots of free stuff
at http://www.sysinternals.com and d/l a
lot of freebies. The most interesting one
was rootkit revealer. Previously, rootkits
were mostly, from what I understand, found
on unix type systems. Now they're making
there way into the windows world. Oh joy!
As if there's not always enough security
stuff to worry about!
Addendum (following a.m.)
Whew! I remember reading how long it can
take to install Gentoo, especially if you
are really a geek and build it from one of
the first stages. :-) I started installing
windowmaker and then firefox last night.
Got up this a.m. and it's still going hot
and heavy. Ran df on /usr last night and
got 15% used. Ran it just now and it's at
28%. I think that particular partition is
about 8 or 9GB. This is kind of like when
you install MS stuff. Eeooouuuhhhh!!!
