dopey: Yes, was against 7.1. I have a feeling I had to modify a line or two in the driver to make it work... nothing major though.

Attach the output of the compile attempt, I will see if I can figure it out for you.

Linux is and alawys has been dependant on the net. That's just what linux is. Not true, Linux is just the kernel... it depends on the distro for net dependency... Thats why you can "buy" RedHat/Fedora/Suse off the shelf and use it without internet access. Anyway... a simple thing to try: dhclient e...

1- I know I need a modchip. I'm not interested in playing backups, just my original games. But I am curious about the different "dashboards". Could I still have a full install of Linux available? Yes, you can have a "full" install of linux by either softmodding your xbox, or installing a modchip an...

the xorg xbox driver does infact work... I have been using it for the past 4 months without a hitch...

You just have to grab and compile it yourself until someone updates the gentoo repository (no, I wont, I use debian)

I have built the nvxbox driver for xorg without issues...

It was a while ago, but it does compile and work... I think I wrote some doco somewhere on how to do it (check the xboxlinux wiki)

The size seems about right, you just have to make sure you replace the old driver completly.

Bug in SDL

For those that may be trying to use SDL on the xbox.. there is a bug in the fbcon rivifb driver that causes it to wait forever and never switch video modes. Below is the diff for "src/video/fbcon/SDL_fbriva.c" that fixes this problem. 48c48 < (*(mapped_io + PGRAPH_OFFSET + 0x000006B0) & 0x01) ) --- ...

XBMC is written with the XBOX XDK, it runs on the Microsoft firmware/kernel, NOT linux. XBMC in compiled form is illegal since it uses the Microsoft XBOX XDK. XBMC can not be ported to linux since it has so much OS dependent code. XBMC can not run on a desktop PC since it requres the hardware in the...

1. the 1.6 xbox video encoder is not fully supported and has overscan problems and there is not that much you can do about it sorry.

2. I am not that good with gentoo (I prefer debian), perhaps someone else here can help you.
