tightvnc 1.3x not working

hi all

f.y.i.

Tried using the 1.3x version and vnc client just hanged there saying "Protocol version negotiated". Took me over an hour to realized my gentoox is not broken, rather error is due to incompatibility between versions.

Play Audio CD

Hi all,

I am trying to play audio CD using xmms. The xmms seems to recognize the presence of audio cd. But when I pressed play, nothing happens. The same happen whether I login as gentoox or root. What did I miss out?

Thx

fdisk will not recognize hda50-56 bcos fatx partition is new and the signature hasnt been updated into the program. Secondly fdisk works on block device (/dev/hda) only so you cant use it on /dev/hda50 etc. I haven't got time to study the cromwell bios and I am assuming you still need the E fatx par...

Now I am more clear how you are using the xbox :) I have 3 options for you. First, if you want to maintain the xbox drive structure, you need to reinitialize your xbox hard-disk using homebrew tool such as slayer. The tool will recreate the entire C+E+F+G+X+Y+Z partitions. Then start the whole insta...

Some background info on the partitions. Because xbox partition is new, kernel hack is required to make OS recognize them as valid partitions with the special signature. Kernel will dynamically create all valid xbox partitions in the range of hda50 - 56 on boot time. hda55 being the F drive, contain ...

Further note, if you've created hda3 in sector area of 63-268435455, you essentially create a partition that extend and cut-across into all the C+E+F+X+Y+Z partitions. I am not sure what the effect of this action but writing into this new hda3 will certainly overwrite data in C+E+F+X+Y+Z partitions ...

The easiest way to check all the existense of partitions is do "ls /dev/hda*". What script you use to mount all the devices? Myabe you want to post the script here. The actual Xbox drive to hda mapping is as follow: E -> /dev/hda50 C -> /dev/hda51 X -> /dev/hda52 Y -> /dev/hda53 Z -> /dev/hda54 F ->...

C + E + F + X + Y + Z = 137 Gb C, E, F, X, Y, Z are mapped between hda50 - hda 55 The partition is in the order of C -> E -> X -> Y -> Z -> F F span all the way to 137 Gb. And hda1 + hda2 are created after F as follow: C -> E -> X -> Y -> Z -> F -> hda1 -> hda2 So, in order word your hda1 + hda2 = 1...

Gentoox bios doesnt care whether to split F+G because the partition and startup information are all contained in initrd.gz. If you use the other xbox bios, you may need to launch linux manually by running the gentoox.xbe. The script is designed in a way to use up all your hard-disk and you wont have...

Don't worry, your original rootfs is still intact. Following should restore you back to the non-native mode. 1. boot from the cdrom 2. ssh into the box as you were during first time installation 3. ctrl-c to break into shell. 4. e drive should be mounted on /mnt/e. Execute "cd /mnt/e" 6. Restore ori...

You are right. I was composing the instruction in notepad and forgot to update the code. Will re-edit it and include the fstab section when I get home later.
