My point was that my previous native xebian install works with 6.05....... OK understood. Sorry I don't understand your DHCP problem. That's the same text as my /etc/conf.d/net. It probably doesn't help but I had the oposite problem I couldn't get a static IP working. I could communicate via the co...

hehe Someones got to say it but re: ".....oh and btw, the full native with Loader 6.05 doesn't work, 5.11 does......." The 9th line of Cheesey's tutorial says "Gentoox BIOS (Only 5.11 seems to work fully at the moment) ". BTW I did the same thing myself :-) Anyway have you tried editing /etc/conf.d/...

answer: probably not as far as disk size.

I had trouble formating a whole 400G drive as one partition (reiserfs). But then why would you want one 400G partition ? I had no problems with partitions up 250G but I didn't go higher so I don't know what the prtition size limit is.

raid questions

I have gone native with 2 x 400G drives (thanks to Cheeseyboofs' excellent tutorial).

I feel positively self righteous !!!

Thanks once again.

I am planning to replace the single 10G with 2 x 250G + drives and apply some RAID and automatic back up software.

Anything I need to know ? Apart from read the instructions !!! hehe

Hi cheesyboofs Very good tutorial. To anyone doing this for the 1st time please take heed of Cheesy's "word for word" warning. I got the "Mounting /mnt/hda2/rootfs on /mnt/loopback failed: Not a directory" error. I couldn't sort this out no matter how many times I typed this line rather than "cut an...

In case anyone else comes across the hardware time issue

http://www.linuxsa.org.au/tips/time.html

basically set the software clock using date then run

sbin/hwclock --systohc'

to sync the two clocks

NTP and time

I am new to this so sorry if you think I should know the answer. The Hardware clock on my xbox is not set to the correct time/date. Although I do have a mod chip which is supposed to allow you to use the xbox bios (by pushing the eject button to power up) it doesn't want to work. I don't want to get...
