Jerr|sdhey, is there a way to make it so that when a program ends in screen it doesn't close the screen?
lyamnolimitsoya your pc is a little bit old ;(
Firztspawnbut you said the w word too nolimitsoya ;p
crabfewdbut im thinking of getting rid of ubuntu and going to gentoo. i dont like the way ubuntu does some things.
nolimitsoyalyam, yes, it is :/
Firztspawngentoo ftw :D
ChicagoFirztspawn: A fair question is: Which Windows box should I repartition for Gentoo. :p
crabfewdbut ubuntu got the network up fast so i went that way
nolimitsoyaFirztspawn, have you seen the monty python stoning scetch ;)
*s
ezerhodendan20: did 'doscsi' work?
crabfewdi should start uchanging one by one
tulcodcrabfewd: gentoo is lovely, but you'll need to invest some more time
crabfewdya i have gentoo on this pc..it is by far my fav distro.
tulcodbtw, crabfewd, you can have them compile the very same gentoo system, so that you don't need to compile everything six times
crabfewd: check the wiki for that
Firztspawnif investing time is all it takes to get an uber stable OS.. Gentoo is definitely worth it :)
MrMarycan i use swap space and swap file at the same time?
tulcodFirztspawn: so why do people still use vista? :p
nolimitsoyaMrMary, yes
crabfewdya i think i will. start changing over one tonight
genisisIs there a way to change the mac address of an aliased nic (eth0:0)
FirztspawnI do have one minor issue, unsure if its kde or gentoo in general; sometimes when I have to go to root in konq, it unmounts all but the root drive :|
tulcodcrabfewd: then check the wiki for the compile sharing kinda stuff, cause it'll save you days of compiling
Fieldygenisis: have you tried macchanger ?
MrMaryso if i was forseeing myself needing extra swap space for a limited time i could just make a swap file, then delete it, if i needed the hdd space latter?
Fieldyyeah. distributed compiling is fantastic. huge time saver.
genisisFieldy: will that work on aliases
crabfewdtulcod: ya im definately going to do that.
Fieldygenisis: i don't know, that's why i'm asking :)
eliaspagain the link for setting up icecream: http://gentoo-wiki.com/HOWTO_Setup_An_ICECREAM_Compile_Cluster
genisisFieldy: i tried using ifconfig eth0:0 hw ether <mac> but that didnt work
nolimitsoyaMrMary, yes
MrMarykewl
nolimitsoyaMrMary, be aware though, swapfiles are a fair bit slower than having a dedicated partition
Firztspawntulcod; I'll prolly install Vista on a spare machine soon enough, but for one reason only, so I know it and can thereforemake money off the windows suckers repairing it :P
Fieldyeliasp: thanks i'll check it out
Shaftocd_rom, After ive emerged genkernel and ran genkernel all, I dont really understand much else in the documentation#
tulcodFirztspawn: lol, you spending 300 bucks hoping you can get the money back out of the troubleshooting?
Firztspawn: you're screwed :p
