Some Xboxes just have issues with reading these disks. You can still install using the FTP method.

Is linuxboot.cfg and all the rest of the files in the root of E? In other words do not put it in a folder.

There isn't an easier way to do it, so I think your out of luck as to isntalling to G. NFS is Network File System. If you have another linux desktop you can use that to host your root file system for Gentoox. Of course this is also a fairly complex procedure, but there is plenty of documentation on ...

Are there any errors before that? Usually errors of that nature are do to a missing header file. It seems the output you posted is still incomplete because it doesn't mention what caused all those other errors.

ShALLaX, the nvxbox driver in the magic repository is for Xorg 7.0 and as such doesn't work with the currently stable Xorg 7.1. gnif, I'm not sure why, but when I tried again it compiled perfectly fine. It works like a charm! I'm now running Xorg 7.1 on my Xbox! For those of you who can't get Xorg 7...

Installing to the g drive is possible, but it's far from straight foward. Magic doesn't support it so you would have to do everything manually. If you aren't a very experienced Linux user I wouldn't recommend it. Basically you would have to recreate the initrd and edit the linuxrc script inside it t...

Personally I have never used the smbclient directly. I just use the mount command (which makes the properly samba calls). If your network hardware is setup correctly then it should work. Can you ping 192.168.15.27 from your Xbox? if so then the command "mount //26-AMD64/{ShareName} /mnt/{someplace} ...

You could try lvm2, but I've never tried it with a loopback device. Really Fatx is extremely slow as it is and I think you are asking too much from a really limited system... Personally I don't save anything to the Xbox hard drve (including root), as as the Xfat file system is way too slow, except f...

ShALLaX, I havent' really tried in a while so you might be right. At the time 7.1 drivers weren't available. I'll see if I can upgade X again and use the drivers in the magic repository. gnif, if that doesn't work I'll try to recompile, but there weren't any compile time errors when I tried the firs...

I couldn't find that howto. I'm pretty sure I compiled it correctly and fully installed it though. Xorg did report the nvxbox driver as the new version compiled against the new version of Xorg. Did you compile it against 7.1, as that was what I was having trouble with? It could be that I just grabed...
