Gentoox isn't slow - but the xbox has some limitations.. Not much memory, and a slow HDD for a start.. - Gentoox Pro (without the GUI) is a bit faster (saves memory) - Installing Natively (formatting the xbox - disabling "game mode") - Replacing the slow disk that came with your xbox could also make...

Yes.. you (m1d kn1ght) should run emerge with -pv and check what use flags are in effect..

that could clear up things..

(although cheesyboofs tips may work)..

Most other distros use precompiled apps - which means they install MUCH faster.. On the xbox this means a LOT - as the gentoo source has to be compiled (needs lots of CPU).. so yes.. It is slow.. but this also means Gentoo is easy to customize and optimize.. So IMHO it's by far the best distro for c...

Just a small hint.. (I stumbeled over this problem) Proftp may seem a bit slow - this could be (probably is) caused by reverse DNS.. by adding these two parameters to the proftpd.conf file - logon and listing dirs will be a lot faster.. (probably already is in the default installations - right Shall...

Maybe this thread can help you..

viewtopic.php?t=1389&start=0

PC games??... The CPU is a 733Mhz Intel with 64Mb - so.. any games that works on Linux with the same configuration will work (not any games that I know of..)

Stick to the games made for the Xbox..

You can also stop the user from changing the template.. just ...

As far as I can see - the sollution is to emerge portage.. Nothing more, really..

I had the problem when I installed natively.. It's not a problem anymore..

Ahh.. apparently the firewall here at work blocked access to port 2002.. But when you gave me the url to the file - I was able to ssh into the xbox (at home) and wget the file directly..

Worked great! :-)

The file is available at Developer/Misc - which I guessed was "Dev and Sources" - however this page is not available.. anyone got a copy, or other source for this one?

You'll have to add Gentoox to your dashboard..
The program you want to run is :

F:gentooxx.xbe

xbe is the loader as a xbox program..

This is covered in the faq..

(or you could boot from the CD and select hdd)

I would need more information on chip manufacturer to tell you more..

I've done that a couple of times myself.. :oops: It's important to have patience when the xbox reboots during installations..

If that is the case - just restart the installation - it'll most likely boot from the cd..

I could try to answer this.. I have the same chip.. 1) - Do not install native - choose e:\ or f:\ 2) - Gentoox is based on the gentoo distro of linux - use: emerge <app> this is the SHORT version - installing apps in gentoo could involve use of the USE= settings and a lot more.. But just play aroun...
