Hi everyone.

I'm using gentoo in production environment and i have not any problems,
but others say that gentoo isn't good choise for servers. I would like to know
why they are so saying? Is it true and why?

Also i would like to know how to make auto updating system? Something like
apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade and thats all. For gentoo it is not good,
because there are sometimes new use flags added, there can be errors while
compiling sources..

Thanks.
Sorry about my English.

the company I work at is using gentoo in production for about 2 years now, never had any problems that is specifically gentoo-related, on the contrary, I find it easier to get machines just the way I want them, compared to redhat/suse/whatever.

My only gripe is with installation times, and updates.
What I would like to do is to dedicate one machine to do "emerge --sync" and build packages, save the binaries, and the rest of the machines does the same, but gets already compiled packages from that machine.

A documentation on how to do this would be very helpful.
