New Gentoo 2007.0 Release Gets Mixed Review
True you learn more about Linux and the inner workings of Gentoo when you install it manually but that's not the point. If I have a LiveCD Installer to use, it damn well better work. That's the point of a LiveCD installer. Sadly, IMHO it wasn't ready for release. I had a nightmare trying to install Gentoo 2007 using the AMD64 LiveCD installer. It got so bad that I just gave up and did the manual install. Constant freezes/hangs with no apparent reason or logs/errors to help debug the situation. Wasn't fun to say the least.
