|igli||altho he might have something else in there, sorry px|
|roger55||hoze_, well of course you need to have the tools installed first|
hoze_, other than that it looks accurate to me.
|igli||"config not set for eth0 assuming dhcp" tho, px|
|roger55||igli, vim /etc/conf.d/net and set a config if you want|
|Dislo||px, well do you want me to set it up with dhcp or how do you want me to set up /etc/conf.d/net|
|igli||sounds like there's something wrong with the setup for which dhcpcd|
|cruxeternus||igli, px: maybe he hosed up the conf file to look for a dhcp client that doesn't exist? *shrug*|
|igli||roger55: not my issue man :)|
|roger55||igli alright :)|
|px||Dislo: well your config will be more permanent if you make changes in /etc/conf.d/net|
cruxeternus: he says his install is fresh, so i dont think that is the issue?
|hoze_||roger55 So when installing, I could possibly have ndiswrapper and WPA_supplicant stored on another partition, mount it and make the attempt to setup wireless one of the first stages?|
forgive the newbie questions :/
|roger55||hoze_, I think you won't need to.|
hoze_, otoh I haven't tried it.
hoze_, you could of course use another livecd to install gentoo that supports both (if the gentoo cd doesn't work for you)
|hoze_||roger55, would that be the package CD then? That includes both ndis and WPA?|
hoze_, what arch are you going to install on?
|hoze_||although yeh, just looked that doesn't support x86|
it's a P4
|roger55||there is no packagecd for x86/i686 anymore|
and by other cd I meant something like knoppix for example.
to install gentoo you just need some livecd that supports networking and chrooting
|hoze_||oh, I see|
|fx||i was actually wondering what chrooting meant in the context of installing gentoo|
|roger55||fx, are you still wondering?|
|fx||no actually i think right this second, i figured it out|
|hoze_||is knoppix likely to automatically detect my card?|
|fx||i was thinking traditional installing, then remembered how i first installed a gentoo stage tarball, heh|
|Dislo||px, the problem is when i run /etc/init.d/net.eth0 restart it wont pull down an ip address it says that i dont have a dhcp client installed however i can run dhcpcd eth0 and pull down a ip address|
|trumo||how do i force lilo to ignore the "Fatal: Illegal 'root=' specification: /dev/hdb1" (which means partition /dev/hdb1 was not found)?|
|fx||man, i was away from linux as a desktop OS for years now|
i come back wondering if it'd work out better now and get steamrolled by all these new fancy 3d things
