gentoo

X forwarding


this one has me lost, maybe just not experienced enough with gentoo

it has always worked before (ie other distros)

basically it doesnint fine the display

[code:1]Earth:~ andy$ ssh -X 192.168.2.6

Gentoo and Cups+X


Does anyone here know why when you install cups 1.1.23 os gentoo, it'll want to install X as well.

Also do you know how to get it not to do this, I have already -X -X11 -x11 -xorg in my make conf,


So, all you gentooers, source mages and linux from scratchers that put so many time waiting to compile everything from source, is it really worth it and if yes why?

I heard gentoo users do it because of performance gain mostly so the logical question would be does the performance gained outweight the loss in compiling time?
