A little bit later than it was planned to, but now it’s finally available in bookstores: the second edition of my book “Gentoo Linux – Die Metadistribution“. We (both the publisher and myself) were waiting for Gentoos 2008.0 release to include the 2008.0 LiveCD, thus the delay.
Besides some fixes (which were in fact only a few minor ones) and updates the book now includes an additional chapter which explains the basic usage of catalyst and genkernel and shows how to build an Install-/LiveCD using these tools. I’d like to thank everyone from whom I got feedback on the first edition, but especially I’d like to thank some fellow Gentoo developers and a friend from my local LUG. Christian (Faulhammer), Tobias (Heinlein), Michael (Gisbers), thank you!
