Just thought I would share my bit of tragedy last night. It is funny, well not so much to me but my Wife was laughing for a good 10 minutes.
I have a Powerbook G4 that i fixed a while back. Lately it has been testing various Ubuntu versions but I wanted to try something new. In the past I had given Gentoo a go on an older system, only to have it crash after 3 days of compiling xorg. But this is a newer and faster system...should be fine....right??
Over the past week I had done 2 builds. For some reason the kernel kept on giving me drive issues so I ended up using genkernel on Monday to get it finally booting.
Tuesday afternoon comes and we are going out for the night. Perfect time to setup the laptop to compile xorg. So I setup my drivers and start the emerge, 67 packages total. Happy in my endeavorer we go out to dinner.
11 comes and we return home. Excited I rush to the room only to find the laptop powered off. Apparently the power adapter looked like a toy to our new kittens and they accidental pulled the plug. 2 hours later, during the emerge process, the battery dropped.
Now the drive has corruption and refuses to boot.
So, my kittens hate Gentoo. Think I may try Arc on it next...if they approve...
