Remember to keep it cozy!

A server move will likely be done in the near future to provide upgraded hardware. This could cause a few hours to a couple days of downtime.

Advanced users of GNU/Linux (and I mean advanced), remember to try Source Mage GNU/Linux. True source-based distribution, and (in contrast with Gentoo and Arch) is:
Free from obfuscated and pre-configured code.
Fully committed to GPL, uses only free software (as in freedom) in their main package.
With even the documentation licensed as FDL.
Without 3rd party patches, sensible defaults or masked packages.
Doesn't need obfuscated python libraries, only bash.
No systemd (they've implemented their own init scripts system http://sourcemage.org/Init).
Uses clean dependencies as they came from upstream developers, which by the same provides instant updates.
Can heal broken installs.
Can also use flags.

Do you like Arch Linux's AUR? Do you like Gentoo's portage (or ports-like) package manager? With SMGL's "sorcery" you get all that. Making new spells (package build files) not found in the grimoire (repository of spells) is easy http://sourcemage.org/Spell/Book

My desktop runs Gentoo on an i5-3570K with 8GB of RAM.
I'd love to run a source-based distro on my notebook, too, but I'm too afraid of the poor thing dying a heat death.

I distcc to help my C2D era laptop. Compiling larger projects like Firefox took a very long time when I only used the C2D in my laptop, but it went much quicker when I could distribute such things over to other more powerful desktop computers. Compiles should be much quicker, and your laptop wont run hot if you only configure distcc to compile things on your other machines.

You could also simply share the package directory from your faster computers. Depending on the package manager, it would simply install the already compiled package (CRUX ports works like this).

Portage can do as >>644 says. Build packages for your laptop on your desktop, depending on the architectures involved you may need the crossdev tool. Then it simply becomes a question of how you want to access these binaries from your laptop. I believe you can do this on a per-package basis as well though I just built everything on my server when it and my laptop ran Gentoo.

I have already looked into all options available to Gentoo, but unfortunately, none of them are flexible enough for me. distcc with a dedicated build server would be the only viable option, but I don't want to get a server just for that.

But still, thanks for your suggestions, sushis!

thanks for this OP. tried it out on an old Thinkpad and it really does feel easier to handle than say, Gentoo.

Sushi rolls, do any of you have any IRC channels you still enjoy lurking/participating in? I ask for I have none left; I used to idle in Quake and other video game scrim IRC channels but those have such moved to Discord for the most part. I am curious enough that I might venture forth and ask other not-as-comfy places, as well.

I doubt there's any programming discussion in #lainchan. I don't go there anymore because every time I get in it's just videagaem talk.

I didn't expect to see this many of us on sushichan of all places.
I suppose that's just the hand at work.

read again, I said #lainchan
I used to visit #lainchan a year ago and there was little programming discussion, and as I said, I bet there is even less these days

OP here. Been in #sushigirl and lurking #lainchan, and #lainchan is sort of programming? People are talking about C as I type this, but it fluctuates between unbearable garbage that I wanted to get away from and conversation I wish I was programming-savvy to be a part of. It's definitely an odd channel that doesn't really have a solid cultural place but is definitely between 4chan and 8gag, but it's not terrible.

The sushis in #sushigirl kind of make me feel old even though I believe there isn't too much of an age difference (only a few years), some school talk mostly, but it's usually pleasant when it isn't dead.

>>250
Jeez. I can see why you don't actively look; I don't think I've been in that many chatrooms at once ever in my life.
