So if you install Gentoox as native it will repartition your harddrive? As far as I understood is it will _not_ repartition your drive, it will however format your F-drive. What I think it does is install Gentoox on the E-drive and depending on the install create a loop-back file-system in a file o...

Did anyone figure out what is causing this ? I get the exact same error when performing an emerge mythtv. It takes close to 24h for the machine to produce this error. I've done the emerge qt, emerge mysql and emerge --sync, mysql is in the USE variable in the make script... Any other suggestions are...

N00b mistake, black screen == screen saver

I thought I'd share a mistake I made the other day with you. Maybe other can learn from it. It's ok to laugh, I deserve that for making this mistake after 15 odd years working with computers :) I installed Gentoox on my xbox (was a breeze after using a good DVD). Opened up a console and ran magic. A...

Any Ideas?
It should be Composite with a capital C ?

I just thought I'd set something straight, in case others read this and would get the impression that there is any kind of learning curve when it comes to installing Gentoox; There isn't a learning curve when it comes to installing Gentoox!

I had a similar problem. Tried disconnecting all the controllers/keyboard but one std xbox one, which didn't help. As I'd used the DVD I always use to transfer stuff onto my xbox I didn't think that could be the problem. In the end I thought 'what the heck' and burned a new copy (same files as I had...

In the current ip/route setup the 3Com card should be able to see the xbox as they are on the same subnet.

So if you can't ping the xbox there it's most likely, as 'nobspangle' pointed out, that your network cable is not a correct one or broken...

I use DVD-Decryptor (http://www.dvddecrypter.com/index.php?act=screenshots) in ISO write mode to burn to a Maxell DVD-RW. Works like a charm with a Philips DVD-drive in the xbox. [EDIT] Changed Memorex to Maxell, which it actually is. Ended up using TraxData DVD+R as initial burn failed to install p...

Thanks. That's what I was afraid of :) I'm totally new to (installing) linux like OS's, so the idea of Gentoox enabling me a simple install and get MythTV installed at the same time really appealed to me. But I also like playing games on the box, so a native install is out. Guess I will have to inve...

Although I agree that zegita's forum skills leave something to be desired, to h/is/er defence I must say that the subject seems to be well chosen. Having said that, I do agree that the Gentoox homepage or the FAQ could do with a 'What is Gentoox' link somewhere at the top. Currently only 'The origin...

As 'ipconfig /all' on the computer indicated that a dhcp server was running I'm assuming the router is set up to act as a dhcp server. Since 192.168.1.13 is the standard ip address gentoox uses when it does not get an address from a dhcp server, my guess is the xbox is not connected (correctly) to t...
