kojiroAndrei: if the major (4) and minor (1) version numbers are the same, you have nothing to worry about :)
atom: seems related
larrythecowhadees: what again was the command to "emerge sys-apps/pciutils" ?
andreiaha k
atomkojiro: i'll look into it...
hadeeslarrythecow, yeah
larrythecow, you can have it detect thigns but it is just as easy to either compile the modules into the kerenl or load them at boot
NeozonzAnyone know why my start up is trying to mount my /boot (ext3) as an ext2?
fstab specifically says ext3
:O
larrythecowhadees: what again was the command to "emerge sys-apps/pciutils" ?
hadeeslarrythecow, you shouldn't have that many modules, thats why I say it is just as simple as using genkernel because in reality you don't have that many parts to your computer
larrythecow, yeah "emerge sys-apps/pciutils"
fietronicI wish ufed would sort local and global flags.
atomkojiro: according to the manual and lspci the south-bridge is the VT8237A which has been supported since forever.
kojiroatom: ok, and is it a module you need to load manually on the liveCD?
hadeeslarrythecow, just remember if you do compile the kernel yourself you need to not only add modules (or compile in) for the hardware you have but some other modules for thigns like alsa, fbsplash, etc. They will all be in the guides you can find in the gentoo docs
atomkojiro: via_sata, loaded automatically on every livecd so far.
andreikojiro: maybe it sounds a bit weird but im not sure i have cups installed, at least i did not install it myself, so i only have it if its in the stage3 by default. and in case i don't have it, does the cups USE flag make any sense?
hadeeslarrythecow, and I am not talking about just the regular install guide, there are other docs you should glance at
kojiroAndrei: do you want to use CUPS for printing?
larrythecowoh emerge sys-apps/pciutils was the command. I thought you were talking about bringing up those options when you have to edit a file after installing something.
hadeeslarrythecow, http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/index.xml?catid=install
larrythecowhadees: yes, I will look at book 2.
fietronicIs there anything like renice that will limit cpu useage by percentage?
hadeeslarrythecow, http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/index.xml?catid=desktop
andreikojiro: well yea i intend to use it ye
larrythecowThanks hadees1
hadeeslarrythecow, just wanted to make sure you knew that there might be other modules you need depending on what you are doing
larrythecowyeah.
hadeeslarrythecow, the first time will be the hardest but once your done it you will see compiling a kernel is pretty simple
larrythecowmmm.. and when updating to a new kernel, can one again choose whether to use genkernel or compile by source?
andreikojiro: unless theres a better alternative to it which i doubt
hadeeslarrythecow, well good luck, i got to go for a bit but I might be around later if you need help
larrythecowbye, hadees.
jintxolarrythecow, actually I only configured my kernel once and then used the --oldconfig that genkernel has to compile all kernel versions after that
atomkojiro: found it. SATA functionality for this southbridge was added in 2.6.18.
zlinAndrei: enabling the cups use flag will get it installed..
atomEVERYONE: any knowledge of a 2.6.18 or later livecd?
jintxomy sequence of upgrading kernels goes someting like "cp /etc/kernels/xxxxxxx /usr/src/linux/.config && genkernel --oldconfig all" then edit grub.conf and voila for me. I find it quite useful
