hadeeslarrythecow, i actually think genkernel is more of a pain
kojiroAndrei: anything wrong with that?
larrythecowhadees: how come?
RickyRayyyj #gentoo can grub have a timer that selects a default os without keyboard input?
hadeeslarrythecow, compiling your own kernel is really simple
Marco3DrChandra, I'm actually doing "euse -i" now to see which flags are not in use, since I'm using the desktop profile, might be uneccesary flags my packages are compiled with.. are you familiar with this?
kojiroedoardo|office: emerge -p --resume > file
SkunkyFonelarrythecow: genkernel makes a kernel that any system can use. you make a kernel for your specific system.
DrChandraMarco3: Unmerge old kernel versions and you get 40MB each
larrythecowhadees: yeah I know it isn't that bad, but I don't really have much time :P
hadeeslarrythecow, eh for me personally it takes less time then using genkerenl
larrythecowSkunkyFone: I think I'll make it then. Thanks for convincing me into the right choice :)
Marco3DrChandra, I only have one version.. but did you know what I meant by euse
hadeeslarrythecow, i just do a lspci and then go pick the right modules
DrChandraMarco3: euse is a completely different subject.
andreikojiro: well thats what i wanna know also
Marco3DrChandra, no if you read what I wrote you'll understand
andreikojiro: i mean, compiling the compiler sounds a bit dangerous to me :)
hadeeslarrythecow, plus anything the various gentoo docs say you need for things like sound, fbsplash, etc
Marco3DrChandra, we're discussing freeing up space
zlinedoardo|office: python -c 'import portage;resume_list=portage.mtimedb["resume"]["mergelist"];
> for i in range(len(resume_list)): print resume_list[i][2]'
edoardo|office: without the '>'
kojiroAndrei: what is the old version of gcc, and what is the new version?
larrythecowhadees: is a self-compiled kernel faster, by any chance? Thanks for the lspci tip. Is there some sort of lsusb one needs? I don't know if I need that?
and lsmod.
atomkojiro: i found something in the dmesg dump. "VP_IDE: Unknown VIA SouthBridge, disabling DMA." Could this be it?
hadeeslarrythecow, there is a lsusb
larrythecowcool. will I need it?
andreikojiro: im not sure. they are both 4.1.something
hadeeslarrythecow, yes, it will be faster but if you personally can tell a difference can be debated
larrythecowalright: says bash couldn't find the commands 'lspci', 'lsusb'.
atomkojiro: otherwise, there's no mention of any errors...
nolimitsoyahar anyone run into db failing to emerge lately? (ill make a forumpost if this isnt a common proglem, with usefull troubleshooting output)
atomlarrythecow: emerge them. pciutils for lspci
mechtncan anyone make a suggestion what my make.conf and USE flags might be for a core 2 duo 2.16ghz ?
hadeeslarrythecow, you need to emerge sys-apps/pciutils for lspci
larrythecowhadees: self-compiled kernel still detects new hardware automagically though, right?
okay.
hadeesand for lsusb i think it is sys-apps/usbutils
