I understand the attraction of gentoo. Why not get a custom build, with
just the apps you want, and no more? Sounds cool--until important things
break, at which point you're left with both pieces.

I'm sorry, I have no gentoo specific understanding to offer. I can
suggest some of the ordinary approaches available on other distros, such
as unrolling to earlier versions until things again work. Yes, that can
be very tedious, but isn't that part of the gentoo bargain?

Maybe there are other gentoo users here who can validate your
experience, or indicate their current success. But, gentoo users are so
few and far between because of the high upfront cost of running gentoo.

I know I'm being a bummer, John. But, I feel I've known you via these
lists for long enough, that I'm willing to endure your ire. So, what is
gentoo's recommended strategy for such situations? After all, breakage
is surely inevitable in any human enterprise, including Linux.
