Okay, I’ve already snarled my ubuntu box fatally.
I can’t seem to get nvidia + custom kernel working. I’m about done screwing with it.. I may just go back to debian and wait for the avahi packages to drop into at least unstable.
Was going to try gentoo as another alternative to tracking packages early, but of course something was screwed up in the repo and I ended up with package deps that wouldn’t compile. I guess that’s the other side of new packages — no testing whatsoever.
Still, this was a vanilla box — no pimped out use flags or anything stupid. Can’t believe it would be possible to check in breakage for a vanilla box. Don’t they have any kind of automated build testing?
I may never get a box that will run avahi.
