[Catalyst] what is easiest/best GNU/Linux/BSD distribution forCatalyst?

Gentoo was the easiest of the three platforms I've installed Catalyst on
(WinXP, RedHat Enterprise being the others).  I'd second the Gentoo
recommendation, esp. if you're looking for a platform with a wide
variety of up-to-date programs, and don't mind working close to the
"bare metal" of the OS.

It might be a little "non-professional" but I just do:

g-cpan -i Catalyst

and then launch my application and see what are the missing modules by 
the errors it throws. Then, I install missing modules via g-cpan. ;-)
