One big thing everyone tell you when you ask a dummy question, "search the forums before posting!"
well, I'd realy like to. but the search result are not very easy to use. not sorted in any understandable way, same weight given to words in the title or in the body.... when you get Several hundred answers for a querry, is it not really usefull.

This looks very backward and unconvinient to me. There are ways to make research much more efficient and confortable, and those are not so hard to implement. how come the piece of software used to power our dear forums can't do any better than this?

There are several threads about this problem.

The only "workaround" is to do a google query with site:forums.gentoo.org appended. It's a little better than the forum search, but not much.

Yea, this has been discussed before. Next time, do a search before posting.
