AIUI, the advantage with Gentoo is having a distro built from source tailors to an individual PC's capabilities. How much of that is lost when using a pre-compiled Gentoo distro like this one?

TIA

nothing, because toorox isnt "precompiled", you can rebuilt/reinstall software with your own cflags/useflags/.... :)

Do you mean that the ISO contains the software sources (no binaries) and it is compiled on the fly during the install?

with toorox you can recompile after install (edit cflags/useflags + emerge)
its not like calculate-linux/sabayon, after installing toorox its real-gentoo-based and every software get compiled with cflags you choose.

I am sorry but I am at a loss here. I just tried and failed... at least at recompiling the kernel... Everything else went smoothly. When I got to compiling the kernel though, everything just blew up in my face. Is there any details like config file or something to point to for the newbies. Thx!

In that case, what (if any) are Toorox's advantages (and disadvantages) over Gentoo?

install toorox: 5-15 minutes (+ easy install, a few klicks)
install gentoo: 5 - 36 hours (have a look at gentoo-handbook, good luck)

A definite advantage. Additional benefits include timely and relevant responses, plus email notification. Thanks. So far so good.
