So I have been having some odd issues with Gentoo lately. My X system seems to have slowed down considerably, it works fine ounce the program is launched, but it takes a wile to launch a program. Every now and than, when I reboot, I try to start the X Server and my monitors just say "Signal out of range" but if i reboot usually everything is fine. And now my "task bar" keeps crashing on me and disapearing. So that stinks.

It was my first successful stage one install so I think it might have been a bit sloppy, so I am thinking about re-building it. Below are my use flags and what not, any suggestions for changes/addition? My system specs are in my signature, and I intend on using KDE, ....

CFLAGS="-O2 -mcpu=athlon-xp -pipe -fomit-frame-pointer"
USE="-gtk -gnome qt kde cdr alsa  avi emacs java quicktime xmms jpeg -msn oscar samba mozilla gtk2 videos oss MMX"

I would use this as your CFLAGS:

CFLAGS="-O3 -march=athlon-xp -funroll-loops -pipe -fomit-frame-pointer -msse -m3dnow -mfpmath=sse,387"

Here is my USE= variable (minus MMX2 and sse2)

USE="wxwindows samba mozilla gtk2 cdr dvd alsa bonobo videos oss mysql MMX 3DNow 3DNowExt sse gstreamer fftw flac mad mpeg xmms xv qt kde gnome jpeg quicktime"

I would not use -gtk and -gnome ... lots of programs (like mozilla, evolution, openoffice) use gtk. I install both kde and gnome for maximum flexability.

All your other settings look good.

My mirrors are:

if you have mirrorselect installed, do this (if not installed, do emerge mirrorselect:

mirrorselect -s5 -a -D
