Just to let you know.....
Ive fixed the afp issue with lion, it was actually on the gentoo server
side, the avahi config had broke :P
Im also running a clean lion install without sabnzbd (newsgroup software)
and the system seems to be much more speedy and responsive :)
Only negative then would be Im unable to change my hard drive to an ssd :(
Oh and the recovery thing but Ive got fibre so thats not really an issue :P
