[R]gentoo_: if you don't like gentoo, don't use it
Niarbehtgentoo_: I jumped into a gentoo install from essentially nothing. Well, I'd fiddled with Red Hat and FC before, but that doesn't count since I'd barely done anything on the scale of a Gentoo install. I never found it to be hard, unreasonable, or undocumented. And I didn't have anyone to hold my hand.
Fieldygentoo_: print out the install guide before hand and you'll be all set. the things you're talking about are covered there.
christopherlnIsn't there a better alternative to 3ddesk?
gentoo_i dont plan to install gentoo i am saying letting the user know up front the root password is xxxx
NiarbehtChristopherLN: Beryl?
gentoo_: YOU DON'T NEED THAT.
gentoo_nope
Niarbehtgentoo_: YOu've got six consoles already logged in!
Fieldygentoo_: there is no set password, it's scrambled on each cd/dvd boot. you can set it with passwd. again this is covered by the docs that you haven't read
Niarbehtgentoo_: And they re-login if you accidentally exit!
Ayumeyou can set the passwd while you install it, u don't need to know the random one it generates for you
O.o
gentoo_again i dont need to install gentoo
Fieldythen why are you here?
Niarbehtgentoo_: Note that the "six console" thing refers to during the installation process.
[R]does anyone know if there are docs about baselaout2?
gentoo_i just wanna see how it looks like
[R]it looks like every other linux dist
Fieldyok. well now you know about the randomly generated pass and how to change it :)
minor flood coming... sorry
gentoo_yep i do
NiarbehtMy lord, I get this odd feeling that when he says "looks like", he refers to X's default WM's default skin...
erithanisI have an issue with the nvidia driver. when I close X to return to the consol my monitor stops getting a signal. everything else works fine and rebooting solves the issue since I boot into the console
summatusmentis"INIT: no more processes left on this runlevel" <- how do I fix this, happens on reboot/shutdown
gentoo_but again i am saying it could have been nicer to put on the login screen
erithanisdoes anyone have any ideas or get the same problem?
ejmhere we go..
[R]what do you need the root password anyway
Fieldymight want to ssh in
ejmsetting up my use flags...i've got a p3@733mhz, and i have a ton of space available.
Fieldygentoo_: okay, thanks for the pointer :)
[R]ejm: set whatever you want
summatusmentisdo I need the package xdm in order for kdm to start on boot?
ejmfor my optization...actually i'm going to attempt to read the manual book.
[R]summatusmentis: no
ejmi'm just wanting gentoo to boot up in less than 30 seconds lol.
[R]ejm: that has nothing to do with use flags
madtrillIs anyone familiar with xfce on gentoo?
Fieldywon't happen without an extremely fast system with the highest end disks
