Go installation on Gentoo

Go installation on Gentoo was with no error for me.But, here is some steps to permit you to install faster :

- Add variable in user's bashrc :

export GOBIN=$HOME/go/bin/
export PATH=$GOBIN:$HOME/google/depot_tools:"$PATH"

export GOROOT=$HOME/go
export GOARCH=386
export GOOS=linux
Note : I've create $HOME/go and $HOME/go/bin.

- source ~/etc/bashrc
- If you don't have hg, you will need to install mercurial : emerge dev-util/mercurial

Chrome OS vs Linux,Windows,Mac ...

Google has announced its new operating system based on Internet.
This is revolutionnary because all application are on internet.So it changes all that we know.With this sort of sytem, we can't compile, customize our system.Other people made it for you.
Moreover, we hear that Microsoft will do the same thing with Midori.

So i have many question :

- What is the future of traditionnal OS ?
- Does Linux have to follow internet operating system like Chrome OS ?
- How to customize an web OS ?

- What is the future of Gentoo ?

chroot : Enter in a new environment

chroot is a unix command which permits to change root dir.

It permit to enter in a new environment in your terminal.So you can add an other system just in other window.For example, I launch my experimental gentoo in a terminal and I make a chroot. My terminal is similar to that : (chroot) localhost / #
The major advantage is I can compile and make update easily without having restart my computer.

Here is how you can do to enter in a new environment :

1) Mount experimental partition (depends on your system):

mount /dev/sda6 /mnt/gentoo

2) Mount /proc and /dev

Mount file system /proc in /mnt/gentoo/proc permit at the installation to use information provide by the kernel.Same things for /dev.

mount -t proc none /mnt/gentoo/proc

mount -o bind /dev /mnt/gentoo/dev

3) Enter in a new environment :

You can do it in three steps.First you change the root directory by making a chroot.Then you create the environment variable whit env-update.And to finish, you load this variable in memory wy using source.

chroot /mnt/gentoo /bin/bash

source /etc/profile

export PS1="(chroot) $PS1"

KDE4.3 test on Gentoo

I've test kde4.3 with Gentoo on my experimental partition.
Compilation is OK and i launched kde but i've some problem with my keyboard.(If you hit on keyboard, the letter is repeat severeal times)

To conclude, I think that we have to wait a little more before install it.
