All Gentoo systems are completely broken?

Talk status

Do we need this warking at the beginning of the page? I have followed the link, and I do not see any evidence that "all Gentoo systems are completely broken". Could this assertion be proven in any way? --Mimosinnet 22:10, 12 September 2018 (UTC)

on http://pod.tst.eu/http://cvs.schmorp.de/rxvt-unicode/doc/rxvt.7.pod#I_use_Gentoo_and_I_have_a_problem in `I use Gentoo, and I have a problem...` sectionː

  There are two big problems with Gentoo Linux: first, most if not all Gentoo systems are completely broken (missing or mismatched header files, broken compiler etc. are just the tip of the iceberg); secondly, it should be called Gentoo GNU/Linux. For these reasons, it is impossible to support rxvt-unicode on Gentoo. Problems appearing on Gentoo systems will usually simply be ignored unless they can be reproduced on non-Gentoo systems.

I believe that end-user should be aware of this behavior of first party towards Gentoo. --Kreyren (talk) 22:12, 12 September 2018 (UTC)

Also it can't be proved as far as i know the developer is just beeing asshole.. --Kreyren (talk) 22:14, 12 September 2018 (UTC)

Also mentioned in Debian manpages https://manpages.debian.org/testing/rxvt-unicode/urxvt.7.en.html and README on github https://github.com/exg/rxvt-unicode/blob/master/README.FAQ --Kreyren (talk) 22:26, 12 September 2018 (UTC)

Warning looks OK to me. Lets close this one up. --Maffblaster (talk) 23:30, 12 September 2018 (UTC)
