Yes it's certainly possible. Here's how to list a few webcam ebuilds found in Porage; emerge -S webcam &/or emerge -s qce-ga . Admittedly I've never used any of them, so I can't say that they're decent ;) You'll need VideoForLinux (VFL) enabled in your kernel, or compiled as modules. I believe Shall...

a bug in gentoox or not but if you just type "emerge icewm-tools" a program called "python" is also emerged.
It must be a dependency of whatever you're emerging, same goes for the other two packages. Python is an open source programming language. See |here| for info :)

I thought "Ey" was Canadian for To dispel any international misconceptions : although it is certainly of the brain-fart variety, we typically mean something like 'know what I'm saying', although often it's unconscious, yes ;) Example: "Take off, eh!" translates roughly to "Go away, you hear me?"

Did you say 'eh' because I'm Canadian? Don't think I'll understand you otherwise, eh? Oops, damnit! heehe ;)

information on the options to the pre-built gentoox kernel somewhere?
Well, you're not going to do better tha the sources it was compiled from ;) Simply cd to /usr/src/linux and make menuconfig, peruse all the options under the sun, included or otherwise :)

I know it is connected to the net
How is it connected, through a hub, another PC, a router, directly to modem/cable modem?

I am happy with my current installation as I have made several changes and don't really want to have to do them again! There is no reason to replace a Gentoo installation if it's working well, IMHO. As long as you keep it sync'd and updated a Gentoo system is always the current version. That said, ...

Try this;

Code: Select all

emerge icewm-tools
I've never tried it, but it looks like what you're seeking. For more information on how to install, or emerge, programs with Gentoo's package manager Portage consult this link.

how does portage decide which new config files to copy into /etc? Yes it's a Gentoo specific decision, but it's user/portage configurable. One can specify directories, such as /etc, that will not allow configs to be overwritten. It [portage] renames the new ones to ._cfg-whatever as you mentioned. ...

I don't have Home version so I can't test for you, but I expect rc-update del xvkbded (then reboot) would work, unless Shallax has done things unGentoo'ishly (uhh, yes that's a word ;) ). I haven't tried the magic no-keyboard script either, so I can't speculate why it may have failed in your instanc...

use different hostnames so your router may assign a different IP I think I could back you up here by mentioning my $.02 worth... My ISP assigns an IP by MAC (ignores hostname), and it remains the same for Evox and Gentoox. Hence I would agree it seems to be related to hostname. Out of curiousity, c...

more for you to protect yourself from yourself than to protect you from others. As someone who ran a box as nothing but root for ~1yr I couldn't agree more.

Speaking of 'borking' word-wrap, how do i fix the 'borked' word-wrap on the man pages?
It's not quite clear (to me) what you're asking... are you reading man-pages with nano? Please explain :)
