You may want to give this a try. Much of the info can be used directly with Gentoox. There's a section on how to configure anonymous access if you're looking for an example conf. You'll probably be using proftpd in standalone mode, but the doc also shows how to configure with inetd/xinetd. I no long...

I'm glad I can give something back to this community. It was shallax's work on Gentoox (and loader), and your excellent native install guide that got me started on this project. Before switching to Debian on the Xbox, I did manage to get Gentoox working with a complete LAMP stack, as well as NFS, NT...

Here's an update. I setup my spare drive exactly as outlined in your guide, with the exception that I'm using loader v6.05. As expected, after the first reboot I don't see the "native" boot option. I "net boot" again and used fdisk to remove the swap parition, added a small ext2 boot partition at th...

There's a typo in this line "Then when that's done copy over linuxboot.cfg and vmlinux via F...

I no longer have plans to use Gentoox on my Xbox, but I don't like loose ends, so I decided to figure out why v6.05 "native" works with my Debian install but not with my previous Gentoox. I temporarily removed my Debian disk and swapped in an old hard drive from a spare PC I was in the process of up...

Gentoox loader v6.05 is great because you can use the "net boot" option to rescue a broken "headless" Xbox server. With Xebian, I noticed that the first parition is FAT12 (type 1). When I changed this to type 82 (swap), then I lose the option for "native". On a gentoox install, perhaps changing your...
