Artumimatt no i want debian to burn in the 7th circle of the inferno ^_^
mattmattehArtumi, so that box will be only gentoo ?
Artumiyep!
Kurlonwhoa, how do you really feel Artumi?
: )
mattmattehArtumi, you use dail up on the osx box ?
inxiguess not :)
Artumimatt no cable
marienzArtumi: if the only problem is a missing kernel module it's probably easier to recompile the kernel debian is using than to find something that boots from floppy and can access that network device
mattmattehArtumi, no ethernet on the debain/gentoo box ?
Artumimarienz i dont like debian though
mattmatteh it has ethernet but its not rj45.
marienzArtumi: you won't be using much of it, you just need something to partition, format, fetch the stage tar and portage snapshot, and chroot. The rest of the install happens inside the gentoo chroot.
mattmattehArtumi, huh ? isnt rj45 phone and rj11 ethernet ? and if its not one of those, then what is it ?
Gillaynor: thanks for the reply :) are the changes I make to "make.conf" final in any way? is it possible/advisable to carry on with the installation using the default file, and editing it after I complete the install? I was led to Gentoo by a friend who knows his way around these things, I should be able to get some specific-to-my-case advice in a day or two..
Artumimattmatteh it was rj 340 something .. been a while since i looked it up
t10 , not t10/100
Kanalalis anyone else having digest verification problems with cacti-0.8.6j-r4 ?
SkunkyGil: the only thing you don't wanna ever change in make.conf is the chost line
Gil: and even that can be change, with some work
marienzArtumi: using something to boot from cd or usb might be more convenient than using that debian install, but if debian doesn't support the device by default I kinda doubt something you find that boots from floppy will either
mattmattehArtumi, anyway to get and 100 Mb rj11 ethernet on it ?
Artumiand i dont mind the idea of tossing gentoo on my obsd box if it'd make things simpler..
marienz oh one other thing.
marienz i have an extra ide cable port on this box
Skunkymattmatteh: rj11 is telephone, rj45 is ethernet
Artumiso i can do file switches locally inside this box..
if i can get the right files without chrooting, ?
mattmattehSkunky, oops, thanks. thought i had that backward
muralitohello
JanisBmarienz, http://paste-it.net/2166
Artumibut i cant chroot since this is a ppc :).. nor compile for same reason
laynorGil, it's better configuring right now :)
muralitocan anyone help me with a problem emergin pidgin?
marienzArtumi: I don't understand the question.
Artumimarienz..
i can put the portage ebuild sources on by taking disk out of debian box, and putting it next to obsd box disk
and typing cp -a
marienzJanisB: that looks like the top, not the bottom.
mattmattehArtumi, you want to connect the hard drive to the ppc box and put the files on it ?
