Description Aaron Peterson 2004-08-05 20:16:49 UTC
I can't configure gentoo in a reasonable amount of time! Gentoo is broken!

Hehe.. copying the "Bad example" because... it's general... but not too general.

I'm pretty frustrated.

I've edited my useflags a few times... and The useflags wern't on my system... Now I have to recompile a bunch of stuff... somehow magically knowing what to recompile, and what not to...

I simply need chineese support in KDE... well, everywhere...
and russian support, and just about every other langauge.

and to be able to play every type of media thrown my way.

anyway, things like mng and svg?? I want enabled too...

Anyway.. after scrolling through ... way too many, of duplicated useflags, like mozsvg and svg (WTH??)

I think I finally figured out the way I wanted my useflags to be.

I hit exit...

and... There was no note... and I realized that it might not have saved... and... I went back to ufed.. and ... oh my god! the stupid thing didn't save my hour long bunch of work search through gobblygook!!!

It didn't even warn me that I wasn't going to save!

Anyway, I just wasted... a lot of money's worth of time, I should just go get a job at Mcdonalds and buy windows...

anyway, enough rant, (I'm steaming over a bunch of issues right now)

Please make ufed check to see if the user wants to save before edit.. and it should also make a backup of the make.conf just in case people accidentally save it.. (save should be default)... and that could be done with the "install" program, that will help create multiple backups...

Reproducible: Always

ufed is unmaintained and dying, it will be replaced by other tools soon that should have this functionality.
