Suggested Addition "How to Set Up a Desktop"
A link to a page with instructions toward building a desktop, similar to building the base Gentoo system.
It took me hours to figure out that a desktop needs:
- a display manager
- a window manager
and even after I had installed a DM and a WM, the desktop still wouldn't get going because I didn't know I had to install ..
...X11 drivers for video, keyboard and mouse! --doh!!!
With clear instructions like the base Gentoo system, time taken would have been at most another 30mins.
- Sounds like a good idea to at least mention the building blocks of a desktop system in the Handbook. The Xorg guide used to serve the function of at least helping users get Xorg going (then building a WM or DE on top of it). I'll add a snippet mentioning the steps that are usually necessary to configure a graphical desktop. Thanks, Russelld ! --Maffblaster (talk) 17:28, 24 September 2018 (UTC)
Stage files may be .xz
The command for removing a stage file from the root directory should be adjusted so that it works for .xz as well as .bz2 files.
