I can't find any success reports running LMCE on Gentoo. Is it feasible?

I used Gentoo alot years back.   I got it partially running.   had to download the source and then install required libraries.   It was a pain, but anything is possible with effort.

Thanks :)

I wonder if I can run LMCE on X server without installing KDE ... just plain X and QT.

Porting lmce to Gentoo would be a large undertaking. Tremendous. We will all help you if you want to take a stab at it... but... you clearly need to look at how LMCE functions currently.
I never quit... I just ping out.

Methinks this is a wise thing to do. I will install stable LMCE into a spare PC and learn more about it.

Merry Christmas to everyone!
