Re: 200GB Support

I followed the cheesyboofs guide by the rule http://forums.shallax.com/viewtopic.php?t=3092 and got a 200gb hard drive working... Everything fine (well except for the classic emerge sync problem that made me put xebian on it) Did you abandon GentooX?? :shock: I've tried to suggest this workaround/f...

I haven't noticed this before, but the distro isn't from back in 2003 :-) And also - as this is just a distribution of gentoo the kernel and software is updated all the time. Note that only the 2.4 kernel is supported as for now (there are rebels running the system on a 2.6 kernel too..! 8) ) Steina...

Read up on gentoo and emerge - Gentoo uses emerge packages to install apps.

Yes, yes yes and yes.. :lol: Gentoox installs as files to e:\ where you can start it from your dashboard (ie. evox). It does not format your drives, you can run xbmc. If you want to there is also a way to install gentoox natively - where you format your drives and loose all normal xbox game-function...

It's not abnormal to use up to 30 sec. to open firefox.. Keep in mind the Xbox has 64Mb of ram - no matter how much it frees up, it will never be enough. Compared to other 733Mhz systems it's not really slow.. And yes - you are correct - the disk is very very slow. installing native would speed thin...

This should probably be in another thread - Blighty.. First off .. you've partitioned the drive with fdisk /dev/hdb ?? have you formatted the partition with reiserfs ??` # mkreiserfs /dev/hdb1 then.. As the computer may only have one root - try mounting your second drive as a volume in ie /mnt # mkd...

Do you mean you have problems ftp'ing rootfs from you windows box to the xbox?

Try another ftp software... (commandline FTP from XP works great)..

I agree :lol: adding unverified information/steps to the tutorial could just mess things up (and we do NOT want that) the tutorial helped me getting the system native - and should be a reference to anyone trying to do the same..

The Native guide is very good - but i suggest a couple of additions.. 1) adding timezone before checking date (to get magic to work) xbox etc # cp /usr/share/zoneinfo/Europe/Oslo /etc/localtime xbox etc # some users may adjust their clocks to localtime - while the system still expect to be GMT - whi...

PAM screwed me over?

Well.. I'm knee deep in something.. :cry: After rebooting my xbox I was suddenly unable to login as root either on the console or through SSH.. I was able to log in as other users.. I AM able to login to webmin - so there isn't a password issue (or anything like that).. This is what webmin said (tha...
