I agree it's a bit slow as a desktop pc, but it works great for me. I can experiment with linux without the need of installing linux on my windows pc. I did do that twice already, but I didn't use it a lot. Now that I have Gentoox on my Xbox I've spent more hours working in linux the last couple of ...

ok, I got my Trust Familycam 310 AV, running on my xbox. (I used the latest CVS of the scpa50x driver) :D I got some problems like "not able to open /dev/video ..." but that was because my cam turned off when the xbox shut down, and didnt turned on when rebooting again :roll: works great now !

It might be in the wrong language for you but you can just change it to whatever you want in the upper right corner.
No, the language is just fine ! :D

Perhaps you could also make a "Powered by Gentoox" image to put on the sites running Apache on Gentoox?

I found out it uses the spca500A chipset, so download the driver at http://spca50x.sourceforge.net/ This might be usefull to other people who also have some trouble finding the right driver for their (very che...

yes, you could install Gentoox by using Morden's audiohack (you'll need Mechassault or some Bond game) I think the easiest method is, install the audio hack, then follow the procedure to get into evox, then ftp the necessary gentoox files to you xbox, change the evox.ini config so that you can selec...

If you "emerge" something you download the latest source code from a Gentoo mirror and then your xbox starts compiling the source code so that you get an executable program instead of program code, that's why it takes like a half hour to "update" gaim, and that's also the reason why your cpu usage i...

I've started compiling icewm (already finished) then the icewm-tools, my box started compiling PyQt and is still (after about 2 days now :?) busy compiling. I read the other post on the forum about this, and I know it takes a while, but 2 days !!! Is this normal? I also noticed that only about 0-30%...
