  1. Are you building your kernel manually via make menuconfig or are you using genkernel?
  2. This is my most recent.
  3. Which is crazy, given that OSX is based largely on FreeBSD Now, that being said, it should be interesting once Apple's Intel migration is complete........

    too cool

    Yes, and the reason for this plethora of information is the "in depth" approach that is taken when one uses Gentoo, you can't help but dive head-first into it
  5. Well, after a fun bit of playing around this afternoon, I discovered that my newly compiled 2.6.15-gentoo-r1 kernel doesn't work with even the latest 8.21.7 FGLRX driver. This was an issue brought to head with the previous 8.20 driver release (at which point the 2.6.15 kernel was not yet final) and there have been a few "patches" but since they were not applied to the latest final driver release (8.21.7) I'm assuming there is a bit more to it than what the patch addresses. Basically, the problem is this: On exiting X, the computer will hard-lock, or, if you are lucky like me, it will hard-

    Yes, if you have Synaptic installed you can search for xvid and divx and a pile of other codecs that mplayer will use once installed.
  7. Also, its fine to setup a "generic modem" but hopefully is actually referencing the physical device, do you know what type of modem it is? You should simply be able to hit the "ACTIVATE" button and it should dial, that is, if everything is setup correctly. If you are using a WinModem of any kind, it is not likely to work. Newer distro's like FC3 now have a much wider range of device support for things like WInModems, which is done via kernel modules. You should simply be able to click on your ppp0 connection and choose "ACTIVATE"
  8. What version of JRE did you download and which plugin did you link to?
  9. Well, being Canadian, I decided to give my local neighbour ATI a shot to replace my NVidia card, which was a Hercules 3D Prophet II GTS Pro, based on of course the GeForce II GTS Pro. It's been a great card and still is...though its sitting in another box now. So, I pulled my new ASUS ATI Radeon 9550GE (Gamer Edition) from its box (Yes, I'm cheap and didn't spring for a 9600XT or 9800 series card) and expected to be able to install the new 3.11.1 series drivers and be on my way....that assumption was my first big mistake. First off, there are no drivers for XORG's version of X, so you have

    Sorry, they resized it, should be at 1600x1200
  12. Buddy, have you looked at the system requirements for smoothwall? Your 166 is fine. Give 'er.
  13. That is truely beautiful.
  14. Yes, I'm running it right now on a box, its amazing, web-interface but with the flexibility of IPTABLES, so its more customizable than those damn retail piles.
  15. www.smoothwall.org, they've got an amazing Linux firewall product.
