The emulator doesn't need 3d card it uses a plugin system and there's a software renderer plugin (It's slow on the xbox). I had epsxe running on the xbox but I had to run it 1/4 screen to get decent framerate. My playstation pad worked fine though using a usb converter I have for my pc. If linux eve...

Re: Bochs Tutorial (windows98se)

Hey guys, I followed the tutorial for running bochs every step and it works great. The virtual pc window opens but it gives me "Fatal: Could not read the boot disk". I assume this is because of my crappy phillips drive that don't work. Is there anyway I can install windows via an ISO? Could someone...

Shallax wasn't the first to port gentoo to the xbox was he? He was the first to release a public project which has been very successful. I started playing with linux with home edition 1.0 as a lot of other people did see the XS forums as well as Shallax's own. It's led me to a dual boot gentoox, XP ...

as it says in the handbook gentoo is all about choices, I think if Shallax continues to develop gentoox, people will continue to use it (certainly the home version). Other people will take the route of compiling their own gentoo for the xbox through portage, and that seems like it fits in with what...

Thank you Shallax, I would never ever have looked at xbox-linux if it wasn't for you and out of protest I certainly won't use any new distribution that you have no part in. You did more for xbox-linux that any other individual in terms of actually getting people to use it. If this is what you choose...

Hi, I'm using the Aladdin Advance Plus Super 64 Eleventy-Billion chip and installation of the chip was fine, I booted up non write-protected (or so I thought), started gentoox, chose 'E' installation, chose 256k bank size, it extracted distro.rar, then when it went to flash the bios it gave me a Pr...

Internet connection, crossover office, sound, alsa

I've been unable to shae my connection with gentoox for some time, it worked fine but it just stopped working. I've tried turning ICS on and off 100's of times & winproxy no good. I think I'm just going to buy a router, if I do am I right in thinking a clean install of gentoox 3.0 will give me a wor...
