someone correct me if i am wrong but i don't think Gentoox supports lba48 patches. ? so it won't see your large F drive. or is it just that it won't support the G partition of the lba48 patch?

to manually update portage just do

emerge --sync

or i belive if that fails you can do a web sync like

emerge --websync

which will do a wget on a current portage version and extract it to your file system.

I have only ran MCE once but i will attempt to answer this.. i do not belive MCE can be installed via FTP and second it wipes your F drive to create a Linux native partition to store ripped videos and such. I belive MCE was designed to turn the Xbox into a MEdia Center edition only and so gets ride ...

damn.. well then is there any change that i could get your patches against the 2.6 tree to start building / using my own kernel with your patches of course. I checked through all the download files. And i remember you used to publish the b0x files but i can't find them anymore..

editing your make.conf file does global changes.. if you only wish to change it for mod_php or when you are emerge'ing you can do stuff like this USE="-x" emerge -av mod_php the -a has it ask you if you wish to emerge so you can check everything out.. Also the -v shows info about all the flags that ...

I am just curious.. I run Gentoox with a native partition? really there no steps that i need to propertly resolve? as about the only thing gentoox has wrote onto there is the .cfg file.
