1. Edit the file as a text file.
2. Do "chmod a+x filename" to make it executable.
3. Execute it by just typing its relative or absolute file name (yes, ./filename if in current directory).

Yes, that will remove kde, but there's really no need to remove it completely. Just emerge wanted window manager and switch. Could be handy to have kde libraries installed because there are other applications that needs them, and it would be a pity to install that again... There's a nice thread abou...

Find out which archives are needed, then put them in /usr/portage/distfiles/ (usually .tar.gz, .tgz or .bz2-files).
When emergeing, portage will look there first if the files are present before attempting to download.

My box has an apache/php webserver and also runs a homemade Java IRC bot. Here is a redirector for it. However, since I got a new 120 GB disk for it it's not up all times (I actually play games on it ocassionally :p ).

You would need to connect your Xbox either to a router which acts as a DHCP server, or with a crossover cable to your PC with the appropriate software for DHCP. Once Gentoox has got an IP for the Xbox you can log in via SSH with a terminal program, for ex Putty, and then change to a static IP in the...

Not sure I got all right.. Are you using your PC as a gateway, ie having 2 NICS in it - one for internet and one to the Xbox? If so, your gateway setting is correct as long as that IP is actually the IP of the NIC connected to the Xbox. Have you tried the 'ping' command? According to your settings y...

Dunno if this helps with IceWM since my gentoox has no X so I haven't tried that, but I had to make these settings on my laptop running standard Gentoo with Gnome. In /etc/rc.conf, I changed the line: KEYMAP="uk" to KEYMAP="se-latin1" that should be for the console...also change the CONSOLEFONT="lat...

While we're at it, setting the TZ variable reflecting your time zone is convenient when doing date, ls etc. As an example, I live in Sweden (CET, UTC +1h) and adjust time in summer (CEST, UTC +2h):

Code: Select all

export TZ=CET-1CEST-2,M3.5.0/2,M10.5.0/3

Hehe..I didn't sign my gentoox.xbe. I only followed the README with gentoox: Quick installation info: Copy everything to the root of /E/ on your xbox, then launch E:\gentooxx.xbe from EvoX ONLY! This wont work from XBMP or boXplorer etc... Worked fine, and still works... Edit: forgot to mention I us...
