While I do agree that "him" is easier to read, it would be even simpler to
not use "him" at all.
This will add a user gentoo, will make possible to use
sound-related devices (<path>/dev/sound/*</path>), will make possible for
switching to root (using <c>su</c>) and will make
<path>/bin/bash</path> the login shell.
(The whole sentence above is a little unreadable either way. Probably
should be rewritten without the multiple "will".)
And the other cvs commit:
in the way it handles compiling and installing packages, very few Gentoo
Linux installations are identical. In essence, when a user installs
Gentoo Linux, the Portage system compiles a customized Linux distribution
conforming to the options specified.
(remove "him" from above.)
