If you want to make your system rock solid it’s a long process, but you have to do it sooner or later.
- This step is optional if you know how to edit USE flags. http://www.gentoo-wiki.info/Euse
- add glibc-omitfp and nptonly to your USE flages in /etc/make.conf. www.gentoo-wiki.info/HOWTO_Optimise_glibc#Enabling_further_optimizations
- if your are keen and want to save 90% of the space taken up by localization settings and some compile time, edit the locales. nano -w /etc/locale.gen http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/guide-localization.xml
- delete unnecessary languages
- emerge glibc
- still staying very basic, add -malign-double to your CFLAGS, and test it by emerging dillo. www.gentoo-wiki.info/CFLAGS_matrix
Type dillo at the console and press enter.
Tryout the powersave or “standby” in windows.
If you still have time, you might like stable transparencies.
