Guys,

just need a bit of advice (because i may go ahead and stuff up all my good work 8O )

I have built a Gentoo 2006 2.6.15 system on a new 100GB disk and VMware sets me free from the eternal dual boot cycle of XP and test systems that I have to build for work.

I have a build that I am happy I have optimised reasonably well; I have all the functionality I need and performance is really sweet.

I have built three kernels this time around- I am running "charlie" now having finally got hibernation and some final wireless things sorted...

I am doing an emerge --sync daily but don't yet really know how often I should do an update or --deep update etc?

Since I am trying to stay reasonably up to date what should my ongoing maintenance and upgrade/update strategy be?

Please point me to documentation if I have missed it. I am reading the portage docs and having done half a dozen gentoo installs to get to this point I am feeling more comfortable about the whole approach.


emerge --update --deep system

??

TIA

(and thanks sincerely for everyone's support so far - including everyone from the Linux community over the years I have played with heaps of distros :) )

Will
