    No, the person is trolling.

    Her might not be.. it took me many hours to install gentoo.
    I suppose I shouldn't have chosen the option to build everything.

    Then I had to do it again.. the instructions were fine and told you how to
    install a disk driver for the controller I had.
    It didn't make it clear you had to manually add that controller to the
    kernel built before you attempted to reboot at the end.
    Still it was an interesting learning exercise.

    And I suppose the 62+ pages of people complaining of Ubuntu lockups are all
    trolls as well?

    Get real....

    Likely, but not necessarily. IIRC, Sabayon is a Gentoo derivative,
    meaning they likely have the option to install bundled binaries or build
    from sources; if they chose the latter, 27 hours isn't unreasonable.
