[SOLVED] Is Gentoo Linux usable for a human in between?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 3, 2014
Who is neither a linux noob, nor a computer programmer/professional, I have termed him/her as a "human in between" in the subject line.
So I am this human in between, I can do lot of things from command line. I installed and used Debian from netinstall image (minimal system) in the past. I am currently using Arch Linux.
And I am planning for installing Gentoo. But I am not a computer professional/administrator/software progrmmer etc. I just know simple C/C++ programming, somewhat microprocessors and their programming.
I want to know particulary from other Gentoo Linux users whether I can use it for my daily work on laptop, such as a normal user do (like running office, media, web browsing etc. apps).
Or I have to face occasional breakage in Gentoo stability for which I need to be a programmer/system administrator.
So in a nutshell, I want to know what kind of technical problems a person face on Gentoo Linux.
(Particulary I would face if I am going to use Gentoo Linux.)

rsync is very slow between the linux and additional secure HDD
location: linux.com - date: May 28, 2012
I'm trying to copy the data between linux machine to an extra attached secure hdd, initially I mounted the secure hdd on the system. I have around 150GB of data to transfer in which there is tar file of around 132GB of size, I tried to copy the data by cp command. It broke frequently, then I tried with the rsync command. The rsync command it not breaking but its very slow, the rsync command is running from last three days continuously but still it transfered around 30% of the overall data.
Can somebody help to speed up the process of rsync.

Creating simple VLAN between two linux machines
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 2, 2012
I have been wrestling with creating a vlan to run experiments with and was hoping someone here would be able to give me some direction. I am using a system called GENI which allows users to reserve networked pc's from different colleges, businesses, etc. Users are able to design a topology and the geni system creates it then gives access to the resources for an allotted time.
Right now, myself and other users are only able to reserve linux machines and not actual switches or routers. What I am doing is reserving 5 machines in a star topology. By default each machine can ping every other machine but I want to separate them into vlans as per the requirements of the project. Currently using ssh to interact with each machine.
My question: Is it possible to set up a simple vlan between two or several machines using just linux boxes to create the vlan?
I have started using vconfig to tag the interfaces on the pc serving as the center connecting point for the other machi
