So it's really as simple as this command in the terminal?

Code: Select all

mkdir -p $HOME/.kde/socket-$(hostname)
What should I type where it says (hostname)? Obviously whatever the host name is, but I have no idea.

Ok thanks everyone it's all resolved. SSH to box, ran magic, did what it said with emerge --metadata, and it's all fine and good. I just need to figure out why gaim crashes when I try to talk to someone or someone messages me.

Best adapter to use keyboard and mouse

Hey everyone, I was just wondering what is the cheapest way to use a keyboard and mouse on Gentoox, besides builing one yourself. I know they sell adapters and I was just curious which one works the best and which one is cheapest. Thanks in advance.
