But this is no longer in portage. also you already have 1.4.2 installed so there is really no need for this package.. Unless something requi...

thanks for the responses.
But isn't it if you use package.provided it will still try to upgrade to latest version of alsa if there is as currently there is 1.0.7 sitting in portage. From what i understand useing the provided it just wouldn't reinstall 1.0.4 or deal anything with that.

masking packages so emerge don't update

I have been reading the Portage manual and i thought it was a good idea to create a /etc/portage/package.mask file for the Xbox which would prevent portage from updating certain software that needs special patchs to work with the xbox ala alsa, xfree, kernel If i could get the software and versions ...

I am just wondering these for future...

(Was running Slackware 9.0 on desktop) And also i wasn't asking to make ext3 the whole thing just an option.. Plus i wouldn't expect you to support two different kernel versions as if this is wanted t...

choice of ext3 or reiserfs for native install?

I understand that you are keeping reiserfs for the rootfs images because of how better reiserfs is at lowering dist usage with small files. But would it be possible to give users a choice of ext3 or reiserfs if they are doing a native installer? I have actually hacked a gentooxinstaller file and cop...

create magic.conf for gentoox pro

I was thinking about this and creating this so that you don't have to answre if you want to install kde, xfree, mplayer etc. every time that you run magic. so what when you actually wanted it changed you could edit a file and then run magic..
