I have now tried that, no joy, does exactly the same. It's not even getting to the gentoox loader, almost like my xbox can't run the .xbe. Thanks for trying to help me get it sorted. I have a XBOX V1.0 120GB Sygate Harddisk (not sure on how to get any specifics without Linux - any ideas ?) Using a s...

Problems installing Gentoox

I am having trouble getting Gentoox running. Apologies if I am asking something that has already been answered elsewhere - I have tried searching on the forums and read all the docs I can find. Tried installing latest version of Home and Pro via FTP on my xbox. The xbox is running EvolutionX. Follow...

Gentoox and MCE are different products. If you want to learn linux, you want gentoox, so you can forget MCE (and hence the 2nd set of 2 quotes you pasted) I've been using gentoox for nearly 2 years now. There seems to be some confusion regarding magic (hence my post earlier on here). I just can't se...

Formatting

Installed Pro 1.5. Done magic update, as per instructions, refuses to boot. (kernel panic) Ok, so I know I need to format the E Drive after backing it up, but would someone be willing to say what you actually need to do ? Boot off rescue disk, then use linux to format ? Or use evox to re-format ? St...

What's your main PC's IP Address ?

Until you can get into your xbox, it has to be 192.168.1.something

I agree with Trogdor too :)

I was just trying to illustrate to newbies. To newbies, Linux will appear more like DOS/Windows 3.11, we all know that is an illusion, but hey ;)

if you can log in after ftping, then it's working !

Can't tell you what to do next, because that's up to you.
What do you want your gentoox installation to do ?

This might be a horrible question to ask, but it needs checking... You say "it wont let me type" but that is normal for passwords in linux. Characters do not appear on screen as you type them, you type it all in and hit enter. Apologies if you know this already, just given what you wrote, it could b...

How did you log in as root to run magic ? Has it just stopped working since you moved to the F drive ?

Dunno if this is possible, but you could try a ftp install instead, unless anyone has any better ideas ?

DOH If you dont have a keyboard, then life is going to be more tricky. If it was me I would: configure my pc to be on the 192.168.1 network (give it 192.168.1.25 or something) Start gentoox then you should be able to ssh to 192.168.1.13 then you can edit the file (like I said in my last post) change...

you can use gaim


http://gaim.sourceforge.net

an instant messaging program for linux (amongst others)

not tried it on gentoox, but I would presume a:

Code: Select all

emerge gaim
should sort it out.

edit /etc/conf.d/net vim /etc/conf.d/net there should be a line in there that says: iface_eth0="192.168.0.2 broadcast 192.168.0.255 netmask 255.255.255.0" (baring in mind the numbers will almost certainly be different) put the correct numbers for your network in there, save, and restart networking: ...

Did you put the gentoox files in the ROOT of the E drive ? They have to go in the root, a directory on the E drive is NOT OK.
