SAS_Spidey01very nice: http://lwn.net/Articles/91371/
smileafwolsni: you boot a CD and untar a minimum system, then install what you want.
james__hi all, i've been trying to get sound working on various distro's with no luck. any1 here good with sound issues or can point me to some good doc's for configuring soundcards
paddewolsni: there is also a gentoo livecd, but it sucks, imo... i prefer knoppix or something
Jucatowolsni: you basically copy a large "stage3" tarball which fills in the needed directories and files
wolsniand that cd's not an installer?
Jucatowolsni: no
it's a very minimal CLI live cd
SAS_Spidey01I think theres a graphical live cd as well
actionsmileaf has a 128M CD with only 32M of it used =)
smileafhas a 128M CD with only 32M of it used =)
wolsniah, you mean it doesn't walk you through the process
smileafthat is minimum.
paddegentoo's strength is the very good documentation, which makes an installer unneeded... imo installers narrow the horizon of the user from the beginning ;)
Jucatoyou have to download the stage3 tarball (which, as smileaf mentioned, is a minimum system that you untar), download portage, update the portage tree, chroot into the system etc
wolsni: no there's no walkthrough from the CD. you need the docs with you. if you're using that method of installation
I think there's also a network-less (w/o internet) installation method
smileafsomething like 3CDs isn't it?
Jucatosmileaf: btw, kdebase-startkde working well. now just trying to get kdm :)
james__i've already messed around with every setting in alsamixer and kmix many times read many forums with no success
paddewolsni: installer == application which copies the files in place and does some configuration ... at least that's the common understanding of the term, i believe
Jucatonot sure. didn't go through that path :)
smileafJucato: what about it? :S
actionwolsni has been sufficiently educated in this respect
wolsnihas been sufficiently educated in this respect
Jucatosmileaf: what about what? :)
smileafsorry I just had my brain fried by something I'm watching.
summatusmentisis there a way to get amarok and the rest of kde to work together? amarok can't eject my ipod, because kde has it automounted, but I didn't tell kde to automount
paddegentoo without network is... um... pointless - it needs a constant flow of updates from the net to be in good shape ;)
Jucatopadde: true. but I have a bit of a workaround :)
smileafpadde: thats like any distro
wolsnibut if it's not networked, does it matter if it's in good shape?
Jucatowell, at least distros that come in 1 CD :D
summatusmentisanyone? I want to turn off automounting
smileafsummatusmentis: automounting?
summatusmentissmileaf: yeah, in gentoo, I've got hal set up. Now, when I plug in my ipod, kde automounts it, at well as amarok. I want to turn off the kde automount, so that amarok can eject it
smileafsummatusmentis: #gentoo ... kde doesn't do automounting...
paddesummatusmentis: stop hal
summatusmentissmileaf: #gentoo sent me here :-D
padde: if I stop hal, then amarok won't mount it either
it's a viscious circle
paddesummatusmentis: wfm without hal
