Faith-leaping in moving onto new server (Typing "emerge -U world" is an act of trust for one violated...)

I'm back to the point where I can trust Gentoo again. I was burned badly by that whole "setting -march and building world turns the entire machine to chutney" thing. Still, just an hour or so ago I once again made the leap of faith and emerged the world for the new server.

    Two things seemed to fix those samba problems: <br />

    It's almost there, I'm even using [homes] to automatically create shares for the directories, and it works for my machine &amp; login, but not for Rosey's :( . Oh well.<br />

    Machine is still doing the emerge from last night, about 22 more packages to go, including most of KDE, GTK+, Firefox, and a few other big ones (yes, they're necessary, this is the backup desktop, remember).<br />
    <br />
    Kinda weird being able to work while Gentoo compiles KDE in the background, very different than the "wait for everything to finish so I can reboot to Windows and get back to it" effect when converting the desktop.

    It's a "server message block" (SMB) server for Linux. SMB is the protocol that Microsoft (Windows) clients and servers use for file and printer sharing.
