iglialtho he might have something else in there, sorry px
pxigli: nodnod
louipcroger55: thanks.
igliheh
roger55hoze_, 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
roger55igli, vim /etc/conf.d/net and set a config if you want
Dislopx, well do you want me to set it up with dhcp or how do you want me to set up /etc/conf.d/net
iglisounds like there's something wrong with the setup for which dhcpcd
cruxeternusigli, px: maybe he hosed up the conf file to look for a dhcp client that doesn't exist? *shrug*
igliroger55: not my issue man :)
roger55igli alright :)
igli:D
pxDislo: 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 :/
roger55hoze_, 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?
roger55no
hoze_, what arch are you going to install on?
hoze_although yeh, just looked that doesn't support x86
it's a P4
roger55there 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
fxi was actually wondering what chrooting meant in the context of installing gentoo
roger55fx, are you still wondering?
fxno actually i think right this second, i figured it out
hoze_is knoppix likely to automatically detect my card?
roger55:)
fxi was thinking traditional installing, then remembered how i first installed a gentoo stage tarball, heh
Dislopx, 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
trumohow do i force lilo to ignore the "Fatal: Illegal 'root=' specification: /dev/hdb1" (which means partition /dev/hdb1 was not found)?
fxman, 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
