Finally, proper Gentoo Profile selected

I've been having this message appear whenever I try to do an 'emerge' on a new or existing package on my Gentoo Linux server.


* This profile has not been tested thoroughly and is not considered to be
* a supported server profile at this time. For a supported server
* profile, please check the Hardened project (http://hardened.gentoo.org).

* This profile is merely a convenience for people who require a more
* minimal profile, yet are unable to use hardened due to restrictions in
* the software being used on the server. This profile should also be used
* if you require GCC 4.1 or Glibc 2.4 support. If you don't know if this
* applies to you, then it doesn't and you should probably be using

I used to be getting these messages because I had selected to use the 'server' profile that used to be available - however is wasn't properly supported, but I didn't mind. So I ignored those messsages. However after looking into this recently I found this post:

and noticed that I could easily select a working profile that would not give me that error message:

# eselect profile list

after that I just needed to add a few USE flags (snmp, mailwrapper, 1 or 2 others) that were not in the new (working) profile into /etc/make.conf - and done!

With MythTV moving to QT4, which has a wider range of functionality on various devices, plus a whole host of improvements - I think things are definately on the upswing for MythTV.
